Although the dangers of exposure to asbestos have been known for many years, new cases of mesothelioma resulting from exposure to this common substance continue to come to light. This deadly disease does not only strike blue-collar workers, construction workers, factory workers at auto plants or other manufacturing industries who used asbestos, or those who installed building materials containing asbestos in the past. In some cases, sufferers of mesothelioma were exposed to asbestos at some summer job during college or were exposed through wood chips sold for landscaping purposes.
If you have received the fateful diagnosis of mesothelioma, it may take some digging into your past to determine when and where you could have been exposed to it. The consequences of this fatal disease are so devastating to an individual and a family that you owe it to yourself to get to the bottom of it. When and where was your Missouri or Illinois asbestos exposure? Law firm Devereaux, Stokes, Nolan, Fernandez & Leonard, P.C., has helped a number of clients obtain financial relief for themselves and their families after discovering the facts.
In particular, we can compare known details about your background — where you worked and lived — with circumstances of other mesothelioma patients in Missouri and Illinois. Once a likely scenario of your exposure to this toxic substance becomes evident, we can help determine who was liable. Do you have a workers' compensation claim, a premises liability claim and/or a product liability claim? If you are battling this disease now, time is of the essence. You should talk to a lawyer who can help you pursue and obtain the compensation you need while it can still make a difference in your remaining lifetime.
On the other hand, if a family member recently died of mesothelioma in Missouri or Illinois, we may be able to help you recover compensation through a wrongful death claim.
