Home / Blog / Compensation for Your Asbestos-Related Illness

Asbestos was used in the construction of countless homes and businesses from the 1940s through the late 1980s across the U.S., but it is one of the most damaging and hazardous materials produced in the past century. Millions of Americans were—and still are—exposed to it every day, as many of those homes and buildings are still standing.

People who are exposed to asbestos are at high risk of developing serious illnesses, including mesothelioma—a fatal type of cancer that affects the lining of the chest cavity near the lungs. Because most patients aren’t diagnosed until later stages of the illness, the prognosis is often poor.

At Norris Injury Lawyers, it’s our goal to stand up for victims of mesothelioma cancer and other asbestos-related conditions. We do everything in our power to help them by:

  • Proving asbestos caused the illness. We know how to build strong claims by collecting evidence and presenting it in a manner that leaves no doubt about what caused the illness.
  • Presenting total damages associated with asbestos exposure. The medical bills for mesothelioma treatment may be more than your family can afford—especially if the disease cost you or the primary income earner in your household the ability to work. You shouldn’t have to pay out of pocket for a condition that was caused by toxic and dangerous materials.

Our Alabama environmental injury lawyers have helped many people who developed mesothelioma or other asbestos-related illnesses due to exposure in their homes, workplaces, or other environments, and we want to help you, too. Call today for a free consultation.
