Attorney David Chervenick:
Hi, I'm Dave Chervenick from the law firm of Goldberg, Persky & White. We have an office in downtown Pittsburgh and others throughout the tri-state area. We handle asbestos lawsuits for individuals with lung cancer and mesothelioma from working with asbestos-containing products.
Asbestos is a mineral. It's mined from the earth and it was woven into various products like pipe coverings, gloves, [and] other products that were used in insulation. Asbestos won't burn so it was used as protection from heat. Unfortunately, the properties that made it a good insulator, make it deadly, because when it gets into somebody's lungs it can cause changes that result in various types of cancer.
Title:
What kind of work did people do who now have cancer caused by asbestos exposure?
Attorney David Chervenick:
Here in the Pittsburgh area we have clients from the various steel mills in the area. Those people worked extensively with asbestos-containing products. Also, tradesmen such as pipe coverers, pipe fitters, and plumbers, boilermakers, carpenters, all sorts of trades. Bricklayers, they worked with mortar that contained asbestos. So, any of the construction trades where new construction was being done in the 1950s, 60s, 70s, as well as the steel mill occupations and power house exposures.
Title:
Can you help people who now have cancer but don't know whether they were exposed to asbestos?
Attorney David Chervenick:
Mesothelioma is a disease that when one is diagnosed, the doctor usually asks "where were you exposed to asbestos?" because asbestos is the only known cause of that disease. We have many clients who are shocked to find out that they have this disease and immediately say, "I don't think I ever was exposed to asbestos," but after they call us, we investigate the situation, and it turns out that most of them, if not all, have worked with asbestos for many years long ago but just didn't realize that's what they were working with.
Title:
How do you know what products people were exposed to years ago?
Attorney David Chervenick:
And individual can file an asbestos lawsuit even though the exposure was 30 or 40 years ago. In fact, asbestos was taken out of most products in probably the mid 1970s, so most exposures are going to have occurred in the 50s, 60s, and 70s.
Title:
Why should someone who has cancer and was exposed to asbestos come to Goldberg, Persky & White?
Attorney David Chervenick:
Someone who has been diagnosed with cancer and who was exposed to asbestos should call Goldberg, Persky & White because of our 30 years of experience in handling these types of cases. We have a special department that deals only with obtaining monies from some of these companies that have gone bankrupt. Many of these companies have filed for bankruptcy and we have over a dozen individuals who specialize in obtaining money from those companies.
Also, we know what products were used at what facilities throughout this area and we have documents showing that these companies knew in the 1940s and 1950s that asbestos could cause cancer but chose not to warn the workers.
