Our Legal Services
Since the early 1900s, unsuspecting workers in many occupations used products made of asbestos. Because asbestos is fire, heat and chemical resistant, it was used to insulate wiring, pipes, industrial equipment, ceiling and flooring tiles. The material was also used in roofing materials and as a lining for ships. Although manufacturers were aware of the health risks of handling asbestos, they did not warn workers of the hazards. If you or a loved one is fighting a battle with asbestosis or asbestos-related lung cancer, your medical expenses are enormous. It is important to remember, you have the right to file a claim for damages and hold liable parties responsible for the harm they caused. With an experienced personal injury attorney on your side, you will have an excellent chance of recovering significant money damages to cover medical bills, pain and suffering. If a loved one has died from the disease, the family may recover funeral expenses in addition to compensation for other damages.
Get Legal Help As Soon As Possible
Seeking legal help as soon as possible is vital to your case, if you have been diagnosed with asbestosis or lung cancer or have a family member who has died from a disease caused by asbestos exposure. A statute of limitations, which varies from state to state, specifies the time you have to file a claim. New York law states that personal injury claims must be filed:
- 3 years from the date of diagnosis
- 2 years from the date of death
Other states impose varying statute of limitations. If you fail to file within the time limits set by state law, you lose your right to seek compensation, even though may have had grounds for a claim.
