Environmental Hazards

People who were diagnosed with cancer or other serious illnesses after being exposed to asbestos or other environmental hazards may be able to take legal action. While these cases are usually handled on an individual basis – not as class action lawsuits – they can still provide people the chance to recover compensation for medical bills related to their diagnoses. (You can learn more about the differences between class action and individual lawsuits here.)

If you or a loved one has been exposed to an environmental hazard at home, school or in the workplace, get in touch with us today and tell us your story.
