02. Your Legal Rights

Understand Your Legal Options

Asbestos companies knowingly put millions of people at risk of exposure. These exposure risks were on the job and in contaminated buildings, such as schools and homes. It’s important to hold these companies liable. Taking legal action may protect your or your loved ones’ rights and help secure the compensation you deserve. It is important to file a claim soon after diagnosis to avoid missing deadlines imposed by the statutes of limitations established in each state.

Below, you can submit a question to experienced asbestos attorney Jennifer Lucarelli. You can also request a free guide about financial assistance.
