The state of Texas is known for many things. It is our second-biggest state, and home of Texas BBQ, cowboy boots and the Alamo. Also known for its robust oil and gas industry as well as its shipyards and shipping industry. It is also the site of chemical plants, factories, and a vermiculite processing plant, all of which led to many Texas residents being impacted by exposure to asbestos.
Asbestos is a fire-resistant mineral that was widely used to insulate materials used in high-heat environments, as well as to provide additional strength in numerous applications. The use of asbestos largely stopped in the mid-1970s, when the public was made aware that it causes cancer, but that was too late for countless Texas workers who had already spent years working with and around asbestos-contaminated materials.
Because of this widespread exposure, Texas saw nearly 2,500 of its residents die from mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases between 1999 and 2013, making it the state with the fourth-highest death rate linked to the toxic material.
Like mesothelioma victims across the country, Texans who have been diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma are often eligible to file claims against the companies responsible for their illness, and they are fortunate to have local access to Danziger & De Llano, a Texas law firm with a national reputation for excellence in representing those who’ve suffered as a result of asbestos company negligence.
The firm has successfully represented mesothelioma victims in jury trials that have led to multi-million-dollar verdicts as well as in settlement negotiations that have yielded similar generous compensation agreements, including a $6 million verdict for a 68-year-old woman who was diagnosed with mesothelioma after years of laundering her husband’s asbestos-contaminated clothing and a $5.9 million verdict for a 46-year-old man diagnosed with the disease after years of repairing boats and working in asbestos-contaminated buildings. The firm has a single-minded goal of treating mesothelioma victims with compassion while aggressively pursuing justice on their behalf.
Mr. Danziger is widely recognized as one of the nation’s leading advocates for those diagnosed with asbestos-related diseases. His successful representation of his clients has led to him having been sought out for comment by numerous major media outlets, including CNN and the New York Times, as well as the Boston Globe and the Houston Chronicle.
