Damage from exposure to asbestos does not typically manifest itself until decades after the exposure. Mesothelioma, asbestos-related lung cancer, and asbestosis may not develop until 35 to 45 years after exposure. Once an asbestos-related diagnosis has been made, time is of the essence. You and your family will face enormous medical bills, and the long-term financial implications of the diagnosis may be equally devastating.
First, there is a time limit within which an asbestos litigation must be filed. Each state has what is called a statute of limitations, which defines the time for a claim to be filed. Second, once a diagnosis has been made, the median rate of survival is eleven months, and thus the need to commence the action is immediate.
Asbestos lawsuits & litigation may involve several defendants, depending upon where and when the exposure took place. Some workers were exposed to asbestos in the course of employment, such as workers in shipyards or construction. Other victims were exposed at their place of employment, such as schoolteachers. Still others had “second-hand” exposure to asbestos fibers, such as spouses who did the laundry – which carried asbestos fibers - for asbestos workers. The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker knows the asbestos industry, and has the experience to know whom to bring a lawsuit against. Working with medical and financial experts, our attorneys will aggressively and efficiently pursue your lawsuit. Whether your case results in a lawsuit or a negotiated settlement, we will fight for your rights. We have recovered more than $1 billion dollars for those treated unjustly or wrongfully harmed.
