We were at the forefront of asbestos litigation, fighting for exposure victims. We represented unions and trade associations, where we witnessed first-hand the devastating impact of asbestos exposure. We still handle claims today on behalf of injured workers and their families.
We obtained the first asbestos jury verdict, as well as the first mesothelioma jury verdict in the state of Alabama. We have won 18 asbestos jury trials in Alabama, more than all asbestos verdicts in the state…. COMBINED. In the past three decades, we have screened, filed, and settled 10,000’s of asbestos claims, for hundreds of millions of dollars in compensation for our clients.
From the 1930s to the 1980s, asbestos-containing products were used at jobsites all over the United States. More than 100 million American workers have been exposed to asbestos fibers while working in various industries such as mining, manufacturing, tire and rubber, iron and steel, auto-repair, construction, textile, shipyard/shipbuilding, electrical, railroad, military, and many others. Because asbestos fibers circulated throughout these workspaces, these workers unknowingly exposed their spouses, children, and grandchildren to the deadly asbestos fibers which covered their clothes every day when they came home.
While asbestos is no longer used anywhere in the United States, the damage has been done for workers already exposed. These hardworking individuals are now suffering with asbestosis, lung cancer, colon cancer, other cancers, and mesothelioma because of their exposure to asbestos many years ago, as asbestos-related illnesses often do not cause symptoms for decades.
Asbestos manufacturing companies were forced to shutdown and are now bankrupt; however, billions of dollars have been set aside in trusts to compensate asbestos victims. Our firm files claims with these trusts for injured workers, obtaining settlements and payments every month for our clients and their families.
You may qualify for compensation if you worked near asbestos products or lived in the same household with someone who did. If your loved one died of an asbestos-related illness, including lung cancer, colon cancer, other cancer, or mesothelioma, you may also qualify for compensation. Our firm will investigate and verify your options at no cost. We are paid ONLY if we recover compensation for you.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with asbestosis, lung cancer, colon cancer, or mesothelioma, we would be happy to speak with you, and answer any questions you have.
