Asbestos Litigation – Industry Specific Efforts to Find Plaintiffs and Bring Suits

Like medicine and other industries, the litigation industry increasingly is an industry of specialization which includes firms, business models and adverting focused in ways that did not exist a decade ago. Today, for example, some law firms target specific industries, specific manufacturing plants, and/or specific defendants. Set out below is a new example of targeting Air Force veterans as potential plaintiffs.

Clapper Patti Schweizer & Mason is a premier advocate for current members and veterans of the Air Force diagnosed with mesothelioma as a result of exposure to asbestos during times of service. The primary cause of mesothelioma, a rare and aggressive form of cancer that affects the lining of the internal organs, is exposure to asbestos – and, according to the Center for Disease Control, over 30% of those diagnosed with mesothelioma are Veterans of the U.S. Military.

(PRWEB) February 21, 2012

Clapper Patti Schweizer & Mason (CPSM) have a newly updated section of their website specifically for U.S. Air Force veterans diagnosed with mesothelioma and other military veterans who have been exposed to asbestos and now live with the threat of developing this incurable cancer. Due to a long latency period between time of exposure and development of symptoms of mesothelioma, this cancer is often not diagnosed until it has reached advanced stages.

CPSM now offers comprehensive information, particularly for those most at risk of exposure to asbestos due to their occupation (i.e. aircraft mechanic) and/or from living and eating quarters likely to have been constructed with asbestos materials.

Jack Clapper, founder of CPSM and veteran of the US Air Force Veteran himself, speaks to his dedication to fight for justice for airmen and women who were injured by asbestos. “I was a fighter pilot in the United States Air Force, and I’m accustomed to being able to fight for people when they need help. I am especially dedicated to helping Air Force mechanics as they run a higher risk of mesothelioma given that they worked in enclosed, tight spaces when repairing aircraft with asbestos components and to Air Force Veterans who constructed or repaired buildings on base where exposure to asbestos was unavoidable.”

CPSM has updated their website to offer the latest, most useful information for veterans from the Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Army and Coast Guard who are dealing with a diagnosis of mesothelioma. CPSM lawyers specialize in asbestos lawsuits and in representing former US Army and Air Force personnel.

In addition to the newly updated website, veterans diagnosed with mesothelioma are offered immediate free case evaluation with an experienced attorney. Brochures and other resources are also available to help veterans and their family members who may be coping with a new diagnosis of an asbestos related disease. After finding out the particulars to your case, the attorneys at CPSM can also suggest names of recommended mesothelioma treatment centers and oncologists closest to where you live.

The attorneys at CPSM have stood by thousands of military and Air Force veterans diagnosed with mesothelioma and supported their families, witnessing firsthand the heartbreak and challenges that this fatal disease causes. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed, call today to speak with one of our attorneys at 1-800-440-4262.
