Wrongful Death Archives

Be prepared when defendants deny asbestos claims

If you have lost a loved one due to an asbestos-related illness, you may want to strongly consider filing a wrongful death lawsuit. These claims can help compensate families for death stemming from negligent behaviors, and they can prove to be crucial sources of relief.

Poor asbestos removal procedures can lead to death

People generally understand the dangers of asbestos. Unfortunately, too many parties fail to extend this knowledge to others who could get seriously ill if exposed. Employers fail to tell employees that they will be working with asbestos; product manufacturers fail to inform consumers that their products contain the hazardous fiber; property owners fail to tell tenants or visitors that asbestos is present on site.

Workers' family members at risk of asbestos exposure

Too many people make the mistake of assuming that a person has to work directly with asbestos to be affected by the toxic material. They believe that as long as they don't touch asbestos, there is absolutely no way their health can be put in jeopardy.

Don't lose heart if your case is initially unsuccessful

The legal process of seeking damages for illnesses or deaths caused by asbestos can be very complicated. It often requires extensive research and gathering of medical and employment records, and that's all before a case even reaches the courtroom.

Asbestos illnesses can move quickly, and so should you

One of the most upsetting lessons people learn if they are diagnosed with an illness caused by asbestos is that it developed as a result of exposure as long as 50 years ago. A unique and tragic characteristic of illnesses like mesothelioma is that sufferers may live for decades without any symptoms that something may be wrong inside their bodies.

Damages that may be awarded in wrongful death claims

It is all but impossible to overestimate the devastation families suffer when someone is diagnosed with a serious and ultimately fatal illness caused by asbestos exposure. Worlds can be turned upside down and there is often extensive and unfortunate adjustments that need to be made rather quickly, leaving victims and their families feeling lost, angry, sad and overwhelmed.

Damages sought by family after man dies of asbestosis

The family of a man exposed to asbestos on the job has recently filed a lawsuit claiming that exposure to the toxic materials contributed to his devastating death. The man was reportedly employed by Gulf Oil/Chevron and worked with products that contained asbestos before he died.

Family of mesothelioma victim awarded large settlement

North Carolina victims of asbestos exposure and mesothelioma may be interested to know that a jury from another state granted a large settlement to a family. The jury awarded the family of a victim more than 18 million dollars, an amount that the family's legal representation felt was deserved. This particular victim was exposed to asbestos and diagnosed with mesothelioma after years of working at a Goodyear plant.
