Filing An Asbestos Claim
The link between asbestos exposure and disease is well established. The human toll of asbestos exposure will never be adequately measured. Countless individuals have suffered painful, early deaths due to mesothelioma, asbestos-related lung cancer, asbestosis and other diseases.
Asbestos claims are a critical way for people who have been harmed by asbestos exposure to recover compensation for medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and other expenses arising from these diseases. If you or a loved one has an asbestos-related disease, it is important to speak with a lawyer about your legal claims.
We are Savinis, Kane, & Gallucci, L.L.C. Our Pittsburgh asbestos claims attorneys bring more than 60 years of combined legal experience to families and individuals in Pennsylvania and beyond. We are trial-tested lawyers who understand the sometimes challenging issues in asbestos claims. These issues can include:
- Because of the exceptionally long latency period of asbestos-related diseases, the initial exposure to asbestos may have occurred 30, 40, 50 or more years ago. This can create a number of issues when it comes to locating witnesses and gathering evidence.
- Many of the companies responsible for harming people have long since filed bankruptcy. These companies cannot be sued. The only way to recover compensation is through a bankruptcy trust. There are unique issues involved when making a claim against one of these trusts.
- There are sometimes challenges in identifying all potentially liable parties.
Our experience gives us the ability to anticipate and account for these and other challenges. Over our firm’s history, we have obtained numerous favorable verdicts and settlements for clients who have suffered fatal or life-threatening illnesses.
