Connecticut Asbestos Lawyer Tim Moynahan
PUT YOUR TRUST IN ONE OF CONNECTICUT’S MOST WELL RESPECTED MESOTHELIOMA & ASBESTOS LAWYERS
Cancer is a devastating illness; that’s why so many of us do whatever we can to avoid falling ill with it. We quit (or never start) smoking, avoid excessive alcohol use, and make an effort to maintain a healthy weight. It’s therefore incredibly shocking to discover you’ve developed cancer through no fault of your own; that despite your best efforts, something in your environment has caused you to become seriously ill.
This is the unfortunate fate endured by many people who have been exposed to asbestos, a known carcinogen. Prior to the 1990s, asbestos was widely used in the construction of homes and buildings, usually as an insulation material. It was also used in the manufacture of floor tiles, house siding, vehicle brake pads, and other auto parts. Over time, however, it was revealed that inhaling asbestos fibers can lead to lung cancer and the often-deadly cancer known as mesothelioma. It’s also been linked to cancer of the stomach, gallbladder, larynx, and kidneys. Asbestos can lead to serious non-cancerous conditions, too, such as Asbestosis, an irreversible scarring of the lungs.
While the damage done by asbestos cannot be completely healed, there is a way to obtain the resources you need to get back on your feet. By filing an asbestos injury claim with us, you can secure substantial financial compensation. This will allow you to pay your medical bills, clear other debts you may have accumulated while ill, compensate for income you may have lost as a result of illness, and create a secure and comfortable environment in which to recover. Likewise, if you are the loved one of a person who has passed away due to an asbestos-related illness, you may be entitled to similar benefits. Remember: You’re not in this alone. The Moynahan Law Firm is dedicated to bringing justice to those affected directly or indirectly by asbestos injury.
Who is Entitled To Asbestos Compensation?
Generally, those who have been exposed to asbestos without being made aware of the danger beforehand are entitled to compensation. If you were, for example, sold a home which had improperly sealed asbestos insulation (without being informed of this fact), you are owed compensation. Likewise, if you were exposed to asbestos-containing products at work without being given proper safety equipment, then you are entitled to compensation. This also applies if you were exposed to asbestos in an industrial setting under any circumstances.
Those who work with asbestos-containing products as part of their occupation tend to face the most serious hazards of all. Working with asbestos every day exposes an individual to much higher concentrations of asbestos fibers than he or she would inhale passively in an asbestos-contaminated home or building. As a result, contracting an asbestos-related illness becomes far more likely. People who work with asbestos (without being provided with the correct safety equipment and protocols) can inhale enough asbestos to become fatally ill within months.
