NC Asbestos Claims Against Asbestos Manufacturers are Filed as Negligence and/or Products Liability Lawsuits
The evidence is well-established that the asbestos manufacturers knew long ago that their various asbestos-containing products were unsafe because the asbestos dust created during the regular use of their products could cause asbestos cancers and diseases such as mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis. However, for many years, the asbestos companies failed to warn workers about the dangers of asbestos products even though the companies knew about the medical connection between asbestos dust and mesothelioma as well as lung cancer and asbestosis.
Failing to warn people about the serious health consequences of being exposed to asbestos dust makes the asbestos manufacturers legally liable for asbestos claims brought by North Carolina workers and their family who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, lung cancer, or asbestosis. Legal compensation is paid through settlements, as well as after trial verdicts, for asbestos disease personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits filed in North Carolina courts.
For many years, now, our law firm has been successful handling North Carolina asbestos claims involving mesothelioma, asbestos cancers such as lung cancer, and asbestosis which were filed as lawsuits against the asbestos companies.
Most North Carolina asbestos claims involve people who worked directly with asbestos-containing products or workers in the vicinity of job-site activities which created asbestos dust. Some asbestos claims, however, involve secondhand exposure; one example of this situation is if the worker brought the asbestos dust home on his clothing and exposed the family this way. Wives and children with household asbestos exposure who have later developed mesothelioma or an asbestos cancer may be entitled to legal compensation from the asbestos companies as well.
