Asbestos & Chemical Exposure

As you may know, Katz Friedman has successfully represented the legal needs of our clients for over 50 years. Increasingly, we have become aware of individuals who are suffering from exposure to asbestos, and the illnesses such exposure can cause. Many workers and their family members were exposed to asbestos in their workplace and home without their knowledge. Asbestos was used in many everyday industrial and household products. If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with lung cancer or Mesothelioma, please contact us immediately as we may be able to assist in obtaining compensation from those responsible.

We can also assist those with asbestos exposure who have been diagnosed with colon cancer, throat cancer, and stomach cancer. Please bear in mind that family members of workers heavily exposed to asbestos face an increased risk of developing asbestos-related disease. Our results-oriented firm is focused on providing legal representation for workers’ compensation, personal injury, labor and employment and Social Security Disability litigation throughout the state of Illinois.

Many of our clients have sustained injuries as a result of chemical exposure and respiratory irritants at their workplace. In the interest of expanding our ability to further help those who have been injured by chemical, pharmaceutical and medical products, we have joined forces with one of the finest asbestos and pharmaceutical litigation firms in the U.S. – Goldenberg Heller Antognoli & Rowland, P.C..

We know our clients can count on the depth of their experience in such cases, and they can work concurrently with us (at times there can be more than one claim/case filed to protect your rights) to achieve the highest level and commitment of representation we bring to every case we handle. In addition to asbestos exposure, please feel free to contact us if you have developed any medical condition that could be related to the following pharmaceutical or medical products:

  • Accutane,
  • Bard IVC Filters
  • Depakote
  • Quinine
  • Topamax
  • Actos
  • Chantix
  • Gadolinium
  • Raptiva
  • Trasylol
  • Avandia
  • Crestor
  • Paxil
  • Reglan
  • Yaz/Yasmin

If you were previously screened for asbestos by another law firm and did or did not recover compensation for asbestos related disease, you may be entitled to compensation. If you have not had a check-up in the last year, please call your doctor because early detection is key to successful treatment of asbestos related disease. If you have suffered from one or more pleural effusions (fluid on your lung) in the last year or two or have been told you have a mass in or on your lungs, we would urge you to see a lung specialist as soon as possible.

If you or someone you know has suffered exposure to asbestos/chemicals, or have been effected by the use of pharmaceutical or medical products such as these, let us help.
