Understanding Asbestos Exposure and Mesothelioma Legal Rights With Sokolove Law
Mesothelioma is a disease brought on by exposure to asbestos. And while it can take years to show symptoms, the results can be deadly. More than three thousand new cases are diagnosed each year, often attacking people with work-related asbestos exposure decades earlier. Join Managing Attorney at Sokolove Law, Ricky LeBlanc, who will explain how his firm continues to help and get compensation for victims of this dreaded disease as it has for more than thirty years. With many financial settlements exceeding one million dollars, it’s important to have proper and experienced legal representation as victims and their families deal with this very difficult and extremely challenging condition.
Understanding Asbestos Exposure and Mesothelioma
Sokolove Law is committed to helping those who have been affected by the devastation of mesothelioma.
It is certainly a dark part or our history as a nation that for many years a substance being used in building due to its strength, flexibility and resistance to heat and corrosion, was ever so slowly killing those who worked with it.
Asbestos was widely used in a variety of products by manufacturers and builders through the 1970s. Exposure to asbestos fibers was preventable – many companies knew the health dangers of asbestos but continued using it in their products, putting profits ahead of people.
Asbestos is a substance that is still legal in the U.S – although it’s highly regulated and banned in many countries. Unfortunately, it was used in hundreds of products for decades, causing irreversible long-term damage to many who were exposed to it. Past exposure causes many fatal diseases; the most deadly is mesothelioma – a rare cancer of the lining of the lungs and abdomen. In fact, the only known cause of mesothelioma is exposure to asbestos.
Sokolove Law, a national law firm with locations in most states, is committed to helping those who have been affected by the devastation of mesothelioma. After being exposed to asbestos, it can take 30-50 years for symptoms of the disease to appear, and once the disease is diagnosed, families can lose everything they have fighting the inevitable progression of this fatal illness.
Because exposure generally happens decades before symptoms of mesothelioma begin to show, many people believe there is no recourse available to them; however Sokolove Law wants you to know that there IS. Victims and families diagnosed with mesothelioma or another asbestos-related cancer can file claims against the companies that manufactured and sold deadly asbestos-containing products.
Most of the public is unaware that an estimated $30 Billion in court-ordered trust money has been set aside to pay out claims to asbestos victims and their families. Individuals may be eligible to receive compensation if diagnosed with mesothelioma, lung cancer, or another asbestos-related disease as a result of asbestos exposure. Even if an affected family member has already passed, Sokolove Law many times can help surviving family members file claims to help alleviate the devastating financial effects of fighting the disease.
Sokolove Law is well versed in the laws surrounding asbestos exposure and mesothelioma and has been helping families navigate the claims process successfully for over 30 years. They understand that this is a sensitive time for families and strive to make the process as simple as possible for those suffering from asbestos-related conditions.
If a mesothelioma diagnosis has devastated your family or a loved ones, don’t wait to take legal action. Time limits, or statute of limitation laws, vary by state and are quite complex. Many states have a 2 or 3 year limit on filing a claim—some states offer as little as one year to file a mesothelioma claim. It is in your best interest to take action as soon as possible. If the time runs out, you will not be able to file a claim, ever.
