How Top Asbestos Law Firms Can Help

Throughout the 20th century, asbestos was used in thousands of products and building materials. Workers in various industries and their loved ones were put at risk of developing mesothelioma and other cancers from asbestos exposure.

Sadly, many companies that made asbestos-containing products knew about the health risks but covered them up for their own profits.

With a top mesothelioma law firm like Sokolove Law, you can get help:

  • Holding the companies responsible for your illness accountable
  • Taking legal action within any deadlines or statutes of limitations
  • Pursuing all available compensation, including from asbestos trust funds
  • Ensuring your case receives the most compensation possible as quickly as possible

"It makes me mad and sad to think that these manufacturers knew asbestos could hurt people and continued to make these products for years and years — and look what it's done to the love of my life. It's heartbreaking."
– Dee, Wife of a Mesothelioma Patient & Firm Client

Our asbestos law firm has helped thousands of families nationwide determine their legal options and get the results they need after a mesothelioma diagnosis.

How do I know I was exposed to asbestos?

If you have mesothelioma, you were very likely exposed to asbestos, even if you may not have worked with it directly yourself. We can help you figure out when and where your exposure may have taken place.

Every attorney at our firm has access to a warehouse of evidence on asbestos-containing products and the companies that made them, as well as job sites that used asbestos.

The companies that made or sold the asbestos-containing products you were exposed to are ultimately responsible for your exposure to asbestos.

You only have a limited amount of time to take legal action. The mesothelioma statute of limitations (or the deadline for filing a lawsuit) varies from state to state.

Once the deadline passes, you won’t have the opportunity to press charges over your illness ever again.

This makes it very important to reach out to an asbestos law firm as soon as possible after you or your loved one receives a mesothelioma diagnosis.
