ASBESTOS CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT

Weitz & Luxenberg specializes in asbestos-injury lawsuits and obtaining maximum compensation for their clients

Why file an asbestos class action lawsuit?

July 13, 2010 – An asbestos class action lawsuit is a legal claim filed by a collective group of people injured by occupational asbestos exposure or diagnosed with a serious asbestos-related cancer like mesothelioma, which kills 3,000 people every year in the United States.

Asbestos class action lawsuit complaints began to be filed in great numbers following the late-1970s, when the public became aware of the serious health hazards associated with on-the-job asbestos exposure.

An asbestos class action lawsuit is filed against companies that knew the dangers of asbestos exposure, but did not inform employees about the health risks. Manufacturers of asbestos-containing products are often named as defendants in an asbestos class action lawsuit.

A mesothelioma patient may elect to participate in an asbestos class action lawsuit, as an out-of-court settlement is likely when a large group of claimants is involved. This may be attractive to patients who wish to avoid a trial. Your Weitz & Luxenberg asbestos lawyer will help you decide which path is right based on your case.

Weitz & Luxenberg – Champion to working class

Weitz & Luxenberg has obtained record-breaking verdicts and settlements for asbestos-injured workers for nearly 25 years. The firm’s impressive track record is rooted in a landmark asbestos class action lawsuit that involved 36 retired Brooklyn Navy Yard workers in New York who were diagnosed with mesothelioma and other fatal asbestos-related diseases linked to asbestos.

In the end, the firm obtained $75 million for the naval shipyard veterans, most of whom died from their illnesses. In those cases, surviving family members received the awards.

Weitz & Luxenberg continues to obtain similar verdicts and settlements for thousands of other workers diagnosed with mesothelioma. If you have been diagnosed with asbestos-related mesothelioma and seek a free review of your case, please contact the firm by using the communication form at left.
