Philadelphia Asbestos Lawyers for Mesothelioma and Personal Injuries
Areas of Practice
At the Shein Law, our Philadelphia personal injury lawyers offer experienced legal representation in the following personal injury practice areas:
Mesothelioma is a rare and aggressive cancer that is caused exclusively from exposure to asbestos. This incurable disease affects the mesothelium, a thin lining that protects major internal organs such as the lungs, heart and abdomen. There are several types of mesothelioma (pleural, pericardial and peritoneal) but the most common type is pleural mesothelioma. Our Philadelphia mesothelioma lawyers understand that a mesothelioma diagnosis is overwhelming and life changing for victims as well as their family members. Patients are most often diagnosed when the disease has reached an advanced stage leaving them with limited treatment options and a poor prognosis. For over three decades, we have been successfully assisting mesothelioma victims obtain the justice and financial compensation they deserve.
Hazardous chemicals of all kinds are routinely used every day across many industries including construction, manufacturing, agriculture and the medical field. All too often workers suffer an exposure to a toxic substance as a result of an inadequate warning or another person’s negligence. Workers may not be provided with adequate training or the proper safety equipment while working with or around toxic material. Aside from work, victims can also suffer an environmental chemical exposure or an exposure in the home. Our chemical exposure lawyers have experience in representing clients who have suffered injuries from exposures to benzene, pesticides, manganese, mold and a variety of other toxins.
Drug manufacturers are required to thoroughly test their products and provide full disclosure about potential side effects. Sadly, this does not always happen and as a result, thousands of people are seriously injured or die each year. Injured victims or family members may be able to recover compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Our defective drug lawyers provide legal representation for victims in Pennsylvania and New Jersey who have suffered injuries, health complications or death from taking prescription and over-the-counter drugs including diet drugs, hormone drugs and erectile dysfunction drugs.
The personal injury lawyers at Shein Law represent clients who have been injured from defective medical devices and equipment, including power morcellators. Medical devices are used for a variety of medical conditions and patients fully expect that these devices will help improve or save their lives. Unfortunately some device are faulty and lead to devastating injuries or death. These types of cases can stem from a variety of sources including design flaws, manufacturing defects, inadequate labeling, or the failure to properly warn consumers about potential risks. If you have been injured by a defective medical device, you may be entitled to seek compensation for your injuries and other damages.
Over the last several decades, many studies have suggested that there is an increased risk of ovarian cancer among women who have used talc-based body powder in the genital or perineal area. Some companies, including Johnson & Johnson have failed to warn consumers about the known health risks associated with their talcum powder products. A warning label was never placed on their products nor was the talcum powder ever taken off the market. Many women have filed lawsuits against the pharmaceutical giant. Our Philadelphia medical product liability lawyers represent victims who have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer after using talc-based baby powder products.
