Pennsylvania Mesothelioma Attorneys

Helping Asbestos Exposure Victims in Harrisburg, Lancaster, Carlisle, Hanover, & York

Approximately 11 million people were exposed to asbestos between 1940 and 1978, according to the National Institutes of Health. Sadly, Pennsylvania's industrial history means many of those 11 million people were right here in our communities and neighborhoods. Asbestos exposure isn't limited to workers either—spouses and children may have been exposed as a result of fibers attaching to work clothes or outerwear. If you've been diagnosed with mesothelioma or lost a loved one, Handler, Henning & Rosenberg LLP wants to help. We have been fighting for injury victims since 1922. We're ready to fight for you.

Do not hesitate to contact our Pennsylvania mesothelioma lawyers at (888) 498-3023.

Harrisburg's Legacy of Asbestos Exposure

As one of the centers of Pennsylvania's industrial growth, Harrisburg sadly has a history of exposing countless thousands to asbestos. Workers and their families breathed in asbestos fibers in factories and plants throughout the city, leaving entire generations vulnerable to mesothelioma. In addition, asbestos exposure increases the likelihood of getting lung cancer—a diagnosis that impacts more than 200,000 people a year. Another 1,600 to 2,100 people are diagnosed with mesothelioma from asbestos exposure every year.

Just a few of the sites known for asbestos exposure in Harrisburg include:

  • Harrisburg Automotive
  • Dauphin County Steel
  • General Electric
  • Harrisburg Steel
  • Harrisburg Light and Power
  • Paxtang Electric Company
  • Atlantic Refinery Plant
  • Harrisburg Steel Mill

Companies are required by law to notify their employees of the dangers of the workplace. Because millions of workers were never notified about the danger of asbestos exposure until it was too late, employers are legally at fault for the aggressive, fatal cancer that developed as a result. Our firm has been holding companies accountable for decades. fighting for justice on behalf of victims and families.

The Silent Killer Waits for Decades

It can take anywhere from 20 to 40 years before a person exhibits the symptoms of mesothelioma. Asbestos fibers embed themselves deep into the tissues of the lungs or torso, slowly causing abnormal tissue growth for decades until a routine check-up reveals tumors. About 90 percent of mesothelioma patients die within 5 years of their diagnosis because once it's discovered, it's often too late.

There is no known cure for mesothelioma. So, due to the severe medical costs and need for justice caused by mesothelioma, about $20 billion in trusts has been ordered to be set aside for victims and their families, paid for by at-fault companies. Every person who was wrongfully exposed to asbestos by an employer or a loved one's employer is entitled to a portion of the trust.

ATTENTION: Pennsylvania has a strict statute of limitations. You have precisely 2 years from the date of diagnosis or the date of death to pursue compensation for asbestos exposure.
