During the last century, over 70 different occupational groups were heavily exposed to asbestos, so it should not surprise you that the majority of people who are now struggling with diseases caused by asbestos exposure are former industrial workers.
If you are a former industrial worker whose occupational activity took place before the 1980s, you were most likely exposed to asbestos. In the terrible case that you have a diagnosis stemming from occupational asbestos exposure, we encourage you to contact our team of professionals so that you can find out whether you qualify for filing a claim to recover compensation.
There were numerous jobs that involved asbestos exposure between the 1920s and the 1980s. The majority of people who became sick as a consequence of asbestos exposure in the workplace are entitled to compensation for their pain. For this reason, when you have a concrete diagnosis, contact the team of Atraxia Law, who will carefully evaluate your case. We will only need your employment records and your medical records to assess your situation. Eventually, you will know for sure if you qualify for seeking compensation.
In the fortunate case that you are eligible for compensation, the money will come from the asbestos trust funds of the companies that filed for bankruptcy, as well as from the former asbestos companies that are still in business today. With the assistance of a lawyer specializing in toxic exposure, you will be able to obtain the money you are entitled to for your injury. The more severe your diagnosis is, the larger the sum of money you will receive will be. However, it is essential to remember that asbestos claims have a statute of limitations of 3 years from the day of diagnosis in most states, which should prompt you to contact us as soon as you receive your diagnosis.
Like veterans who developed terrible diseases as a consequence of military asbestos exposure, former industrial workers who came to struggle with these afflictions are also entitled to financial compensation. Nevertheless, because filing a claim for asbestos exposure is a complex process, the team of Atraxia Law is here to ease the process for you by thoroughly assessing your situation.
After we take a close look at your employment and medical records, we will tell you whether you qualify for filing a claim. If you do, we will recommend you a lawyer whose primary area of practice is toxic exposure so that you can obtain the compensation you deserve for your physical and emotional distress.
