Responsible Parties


The companies that are named as defendants in asbestos litigation are not the companies that the asbestos victim may have been familiar with in the last ten years or the last twenty years. Because asbestos diseases have a long latency period, usually thirty or forty years. So our job is to reconstruct all the various asbestos products that a mesothelioma victim, or a lung cancer victim, or an asbestosis victim may have worked with or around thirty and forty years ago. This means that we usually end up with a dozen or two dozen different companies who are named as defendants in these cases. And it also means that there's a lot of research and a lot of investigation that goes into determining who's responsible for any one individual's asbestos-related disease.
