Asbestos Exposure

Asbestos was once considered a miracle material used in almost every type of construction and in many industries. Sadly, we now know it is one of the most dangerous toxins found in the workplace. At CT Injury Lawyers, our asbestos claim attorneys will get just compensation for you or your family if a loved one has developed an asbestos-related disease.

Asbestos litigation has been one of the longest, most complicated, and most expensive legal fights in the history of the United States. Even though asbestos is now banned in the U.S., many workers are exposed to asbestos that resides in existing buildings, pipes and insulation, and the results are often not apparent for years or even decades.

You need an experienced asbestos workers’ compensation attorney to get justice and compensation for mesothelioma and asbestos-related conditions.

Workers at Risk for Illness

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), 1.3 million employees in construction and general industry have likely been exposed to asbestos. The health problems are especially common among construction and demolition workers who may have accidentally inhaled or ingested asbestos dust and fibers.

Asbestos-related illnesses include:

  • Asbestosis
  • Lung cancer
  • Laryngeal cancer
  • Mesothelioma
  • Gastrointestinal cancer
  • Lung disease

Some of these illnesses, such as mesothelioma and other cancers do not present themselves until many years after the worker is exposed to asbestos.

Support for Connecticut Families in Difficult Times

Choosing an attorney to represent you in depositions and in legal filings can be as important to your family's future as selecting the right doctor. If you were exposed to asbestos and became sick as a result, you need a mesothelioma attorney that has experience in complex litigation. Important issues to consider include:

  • Your particular cancer and medical prognosis
  • The proper venue and jurisdiction to receive compensation
  • Potential for compensation based on the specific facts of your case
