When a person is exposed to high levels of asbestos for a prolonged period of time, he or she is at risk of contracting several illnesses, including cancer. Most of the time, exposure to high levels of asbestos happens at work or through direct contact with a family member’s work clothing.
At Oliver Law, we represent people who are suffering from asbestos-related cancer as well as family members who have lost loved ones to wrongful death. We understand that high costs of medical treatments come with having mesothelioma and other types of cancer, and that this renders the patient unable to work or live a normal life.
If you wish to file for asbestos and mesothelioma claims, you must first identify the product containing asbestos as well as the companies which manufactured or provided asbestos for your workplace. Based on the information you’re going to give us, it would help in determining the extent of damages the manufacturer and distributor will have to pay. If your employer is also aware of the existence of asbestos in your workplace, and did not do anything about it, then the company will also have to be accountable for this action.
Countless products caused asbestos exposure in the workplace, including heat-resistant gloves, auto parts, insulation, ship parts, pipe covering, textiles and other protective clothing. If we can confirm which products you are directly exposed with in your workplace, it will lead us directly to the people who should be responsible for paying the damages.
In personal injury and wrongful death suits we represent, you may also be entitled to any workers’ compensation benefits as well as compensation for pain and suffering.
