Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that has been used for centuries in numerous industrial and commercial products due to its heat-resistant and insulating properties. Unfortunately, it is also a known carcinogen, and exposure to asbestos can lead to serious illness, including mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis. If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with an asbestos-related illness, you may be entitled to compensation.

Lung Cancer Claims
Asbestos exposure can also cause lung cancer, which can have serious and life-threatening consequences.
Asbestosis is a chronic lung disease caused by prolonged exposure to asbestos fibers.
Wrongful Death Claims
If your loved one has died as a result of an asbestos-related disease, we can help you pursue a wrongful death claim against the responsible parties.
Several parties can potentially be liable in an asbestos-related claim, including the following:
The manufacturers of asbestos-containing products can be held liable for injuries caused by their products. They have a duty to warn consumers of the dangers associated with their products and provide adequate safety instructions.
Suppliers and Distributors
Suppliers and distributors of asbestos-containing products can also be held liable for injuries caused by their products. They have a duty to ensure that the products they sell are safe and free from defects.
Contractors who install or remove asbestos-containing materials can be held liable for exposing workers and other individuals to asbestos fibers. Therefore, they must follow safety protocols and take appropriate measures to protect individuals from exposure.
Property owners who fail to take reasonable steps to identify and remove asbestos-containing materials on their property can be held liable for injuries caused by exposure to them. This is because of their duty to maintain a safe environment for workers, visitors, and tenants.
Liability will depend on the specific circumstances of the case and the extent of each party’s involvement in the manufacture, distribution, or use of asbestos-containing products. In addition, liability can be shared among multiple parties.
