Although the use of asbestos as a building material has been discontinued, its presence is still causing serious injury among workers today. Even adult children of workers exposed to asbestos now are becoming ill as a result of secondary exposure to this very dangerous material.
Asbestos is a soft fibrous material that was used in the past to make insulation and other fireproof products.
Exposure to asbestos is known to cause serious illness, the most frequent and worst being mesothelioma, a cancer.
Asbestos claims are generally filed against the company or party responsible for the property where the asbestos exposure took place. Claims seek workers’ compensation for asbestos-related injury.
Because of the long time effects of asbestos, Avera & Smith is today seeing a number of claims emerging and finding their way to trial. If you or a family member have been diagnosed with mesothelioma or otherwise harmed by exposure to asbestos, please contact us. We can help get you the restitution you deserve.
