Identifying The Source Of Asbestos Exposure
Asbestos exposure has been linked to lung cancer, colon cancer and esophageal cancer. It is also the only known cause of mesothelioma, a cancer of the pleura in the lungs. To recover compensation, however, you will need an attorney who can prove that your cancer was caused by asbestos exposure at your workplace. Because you may have been exposed up to 50 years ago, this process can be challenging.
At Kelley Ferraro, LLC, we have experience proving the source of asbestos in cancer and mesothelioma litigation. We work hard to protect the rights of our clients against negligent asbestos manufacturers and distributors.
One of the first steps in the legal process of filing asbestos and mesothelioma claims is to identify the product that contained asbestos and the companies that manufactured asbestos for your workplace. Typically, we seek damages from the manufacturer and distributor, not your employer, unless your employer knew that asbestos was hazardous to your health.
Countless products caused asbestos exposure in the workplace, including pipe covering, insulation, auto parts, drywall, ship parts, textiles and heat-resistant gloves and other protective clothing. When we know which product was used in your job, we can identify the manufacturer and hold it liable for your losses.
The damages we seek in personal injury and wrongful death suits are in addition to any workers’ compensation benefits you may have received. Unlike workers’ comp, these damages can include compensation for pain and suffering.
