Were You Or A Loved One Exposed To Asbestos?
An experienced lawyer can help you seek justice
For many decades, asbestos was used in a variety of applications without heed to the danger it could pose to people’s lungs. Unfortunately, even years later, people who were exposed to asbestos – many of them blue-collar workers – are left to deal with the aftermath. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with asbestosis, mesothelioma or another asbestos-related disease, you may be entitled to financial compensation to help with your medical bills and other expenses.
Asbestos litigation is a complex area of law, especially because it often takes 10 to 40 years before symptoms become obvious. That’s why it’s so important to get an experienced attorney on your side. That’s why you need to contact the Law Offices of James Morris.
Bringing justice to people injured by asbestos exposure
Exposure to asbestos can have multiple serious, long-term health effects. Some of the diseases associated with asbestos include:
- Diffuse pleural thickening
- Pleural plaques
- Pleural effusion
- Rounded atelectasis
- Lung cancer
People who worked in jobs with significant exposure to asbestos dust are the most likely to develop asbestos-related diseases. But environmental exposure for people in other situations is also a risk. In some cases, asbestos dust came into workers’ homes after accumulating on the worker’s clothing, leading to exposure for other family members.
Financial compensation exists, but accessing it can be difficult
Because asbestos exposure is such a widespread issue, there are multiple legal options for people who have become ill. Depending on the circumstances of your asbestos-related injury, you may be able to access compensation by filing a lawsuit against a manufacturer or through a fund set up specifically to help asbestos victims.
However, building a legal case based on asbestos exposure is rarely easy. Because there is such a long delay between the time of exposure and the date symptoms actually become obvious, you need an attorney who has the resources and experience to thoroughly investigate your claim and build a strong legal case.
