Mesothelioma Lawyers California Clapper, Patti Schweizer & Mason is a California mesothelioma law firm with over 30 years of success. Our lawyers have recovered millions of dollars in settlement compensation for mesothelioma (asbestos cancer) patients and their families who have lived and worked in the State of California. We have represented workers who were exposed to asbestos in shipyards, refineries, naval facilities, construction sites and industrial operations throughout California. Unfortunately, the same industry, shipbuilding and military presence that has been an economic boon to Californians over the years has also resulted in many of our citizens being exposed to asbestos and developing mesothelioma and other asbestos diseases. These diseases could have and should have been prevented. The knowledge that was needed to prevent asbestos diseases from occurring existed as far back as the 1930's. California law allows people who develop asbestos diseases, even from exposure in the remote past, to sue and receive compensation from the responsible companies. The law in California allows us to obtain early trial dates for people with mesothelioma, so that our attorneys can often completely resolve a case within six months or less. California law imposes liability on the companies that sold defective products for the injuries caused by their products. California juries, particularly in Los Angeles, Alameda and San Francisco Counties, have repeatedly awarded large verdicts for mesothelioma victims and their families. This record of large jury verdicts provides motivation for asbestos companies to settle cases before trial. Mesothelioma is a very serious form of cancer related to asbestos exposure, and families who have been touched by mesothelioma have many challenges ahead. Whatever treatment options a mesothelioma patient chooses, treatment is expensive. A mesothelioma diagnosis can often mean financial hardship without some kind of legal assistance. Our experienced mesothelioma lawyers can help provide fast compensation to California families impacted by mesothelioma. The financial resources we make available allow our clients to focus on fighting mesothelioma, beating the odds, and enjoying time with loved ones. We have represented people who have worked at virtually every major shipyard, refinery and industrial plant in the state. The full list is too long to mention here, but our clients have worked at: Government shipyards in California with possible asbestos exposure: Hunter’s Point Naval Shipyard Long Beach Naval Shipyard Mare Island Naval Shipyard Alameda Naval Air Station 32nd Street Naval Base (San Diego) North Island Naval Air Station (San Diego)Ethiopia’s government has explained that privatisation of the national airline and state telecommunications company is being done to ease the shortage of foreign currency. Ethiopia announced last week plans to open its state-run telecoms monopoly and state-owned Ethiopian Airlines to private domestic and foreign investment. In an exclusive interview with state broadcaster, Fana BC, Dr. Yinager Desie, Commissioner of the Ethiopian National Planning Commission said lower export performance, failure of mega projects to commence production, high demand for imported goods and growing external debt burden have worsened the shortage of foreign currency. displayAdvert("mpu_3") Ethiopia requires more than $13 billion over the coming two years for oil importation, private investment, upgrading of existing projects and for repayment of external debt. South African telecommunications firms MTN Group and Vodacom Group have already expressed interest in taking up investment options in Ethiopia’s telecom sector as soon as it opens up. Desie says the privatised enterprises would generate large amount of foreign currencies to tackle shortage. The commission will therefore give priority to foreign companies in privatising the enterprises as government’s decision is targeted obtaining foreign currency.
