MESOTHELIOMA
& ASBESTOS

ATLANTA MESOTHELIOMA ATTORNEY

Representing Victims of Asbestos-Related Diseases

Asbestos is a material that was popular in the manufacturing of many different products, including insulation, shingles and drywall, as well as many other products because of its resistance to heat and fire. It wasn’t until many years later that the dangers associated with asbestos exposure became known.

When inhaled, the microscopic asbestos fibers get into the lungs and can lead to a variety of serious conditions and health problems. Products containing asbestos have been banned for many years, but the dangers of asbestos continue to impact people who become exposed to it. If you or a loved one is suffering from an illness that can be tied to asbestos exposure, it is important that you seek the advice of an experienced attorney with the ability to protect your interests.

Georgia Asbestos Exposure Lawyer

At the W. Winston Briggs Law Firm in Atlanta, we are prepared to represent clients in any type of case involving asbestos-related injuries and illnesses. Many of the clients we represent include construction crews involved in the demolition of old buildings that were built using products containing asbestos. We also represent people who were exposed to asbestos during demolition, including people who lived or worked near a demolition site where harmful materials were not properly handled or cleaned up.

Two of the most common conditions associated with asbestos are mesothelioma and asbestosis. Victims of these conditions can face years of hardship and are often entitled to seek compensation from the negligent parties. When you hire our firm, we engage the appropriate experts in order to build the strongest possible case on your behalf. It is our commitment to help you secure the maximum level of compensation available for the harm you have suffered.

Mesothelioma: Mesothelioma is a type of cancer that occurs when inhaled asbestos fibers attach themselves to the protective lining of your lungs. Some common symptoms of mesothelioma can include persistent chest pain, chronic cough, shortness of breath, night sweats and digestive trouble.

Asbestosis: Asbestosis is a condition that develops as the result of exposure to asbestos. Also referred to as “diffuse pulmonary fibrosis,” asbestosis occurs when asbestos fibers attach themselves to the interior walls of the lungs where scar tissue develops, making the lungs less efficient and breathing more difficult. In some cases, this type of scarring can lead to the development of the tumors that cause mesothelioma.

Wrongful Death
“My husband died in a terrible trucking accident, leaving me a widow and my son without a father. The trucking company (that killed my husband) initially refused to accept responsibility for my husband’s death. I hired Winston Briggs and turned everything over to him. During this very difficult time, Winston took total control of the case and filed suit in federal court in Virginia.

“While cycling with a group in Roswell, I was hit by a car, resulting in emergency hospitalization for multiple injuries, two surgeries, and months of rehabilitation. The driver, who was charged with improper passing, was uncommunicative, as was his insurance company.
Cyclist Tom Erdmanczyk, Roswell, GA
I sustained injuries when I was hit by a car riding my bicycle. The driver contended I was at fault for the collision. In researching attorneys, W. Winston Briggs came highly recommended as a personal injury trial attorney. I hired Mr. Briggs and his firm took over my case.
Cyclist Bruce Fernald, Atlanta, GA
I injured myself requiring surgery when I fell at a hotel in New Orleans while on business. The insurance company for the hotel initially denied responsibility for my injury and then later offered me only a modest sum to settle the case, claiming there were multiple problems with my claim. I retained Winston Briggs to handle my claim and he did the rest.
Ed Dietzel, Atlanta, GA
I have been fortunate to find (surfing the web) W. Winston Briggs Law Firm to take over my case after almost a year of being with a “highly recommended season” attorney who was unable to serve the defendant, claiming he was “too big to be served,” here in Atlanta?
