Keith Barket, a 49-year-old redeveloper and father of two has passed away from peritoneal mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer whose only known cause is exposure to asbestos.
The St. Louis native had recently completed work on the Crestwood Court Mall, and was the senior managing director of Angelo, Gordon and Co., a privately-held investment company in New York City.
Mr. Barket’s mesothelioma diagnosis is an unfortunate reminder that mesothelioma cancer can strike anyone – regardless of age or economic status.
Since mesothelioma is almost always caused by exposure to asbestos, you or a loved one may be entitled to compensation if you have been diagnosed with the cancer. Mesothelioma attorneys may be able to help you get the compensation you need and deserve.
