Asbestos and Mesothelioma Litigation

Asbestos companies knew as far back as the 1930s that their products were dangerous and harmful to people's health. However, they concealed this information from the general public. Company memos and letters that have become public make it clear that medical professionals and insurance firms warned the asbestos companies of the risks involved in processing and selling asbestos-containing products. These companies chose profit over public safety.

Product Liability

Product liability claims are made by injured parties against manufacturers to attain compensation for medical bills, emotional trauma, loss of wages, and any other hardships that may be caused by defective or dangerous products. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, asbestosis, or another asbestos-related disease as the result of use of an asbestos product, you may be entitled to compensation.

Workplace Exposure

Federal and state governments have recognized the serious health hazards of workplace exposure to asbestos fibers and have established laws accordingly. The Occupational and Safety Health Administration (OSHA) enforces laws designed to protect workers from exposure to asbestos. These laws define the permissible workplace exposure level at 0.1 fibers per cubic centimeter for an eight-hour workday and one fiber per centimeter in any thirty-minute time frame.

Wrongful Death

Wrongful death claims are intended to provide monetary damages to a deceased person's beneficiaries and dependents when the victim's death was caused by another party's negligent, careless, or reckless actions. Dependents and immediate family members (including parents, spouses, and children) are typically eligible to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Under some circumstances other family members may be permitted to file suit.
