What Can Weitz & Luxenberg’s Long Island Office Do for You?

Partner Lisa Nathanson Busch heads up W&L’s Asbestos Bankruptcy Department. She explains why we are the right choice if you are looking for a personal injury law firm on Long Island.

  • What makes W&L’s Long Island office an excellent choice for potential clients?

    As a very experienced U.S. asbestos related exposure personal injury law firm, we know how to help our clients. We have been successfully suing large corporations for decades. W&L attorneys are not afraid to go up against the “big guys” for you. And we have the resources to do so. But we still want to get to know each of clients as an individual and understand your story.

  • What specific types of litigation does the Long Island office focus on?

    Our firm began with litigation about asbestos exposure causing mesothelioma, lung cancer, and other cancers. And we became one of the highly successful leading firms from our beginnings in the 1980s. Long Island is a key place where engineers, laborers, industrial workers, and other blue-collar workers faced asbestos exposure.  We expanded to cover a range of personal injury and consumer protection lawsuits. Our Long Island office can better serve clients who live in the metro New York area, but your lives and jobs are focused closer to their homes.

  • What types of clients should contact the Long Island office of Weitz & Luxenberg for help?

    Many of our Long Island office cases are asbestos exposure lawsuits. The majority of our clients are workers from power plants, hospitals, military sites, and commercial construction sites. Our clients were employed as shipyard workers, construction workers, contractors, power plant workers, insulators, and auto mechanics. Many of them worked for the LIRR (Long Island Rail Road) or LILCO/LIPA (Long Island Lighting Company/Long Island Power Authority).

  • Do all your clients have first-hand exposure from asbestos?

    No. In addition to people who were directly exposed to asbestos at work, we often have cancer cases from their family members. These family members were exposed to asbestos when it was brought home by their loved ones. It may be a child who grew up greeting their dad with a big hug when he came home from work. Or it could be a wife who was washing his laundry. Unfortunately, they can both get extremely sick from their exposure to asbestos.

  • Does W&L accept clients with personal injuries not related to asbestos?

    Yes, we help a wide range of clients. Although our focus is on asbestos exposure, this type of injury falls under a broader umbrella of personal injury law. In these other cases, our clients are also injured by a company’s negligence. 

    These are often cases involving water contamination and other types of environmental pollution. We also have clients who were made sick by toxic chemicals in other ways. In addition to these, we handle cases for people suffering from dangerous drugs or defective medical devices, including hip implants.

  • What drives you and the team at Weitz & Luxenberg?

    It is simple. We want to help people hurt by others. My colleagues and I believe in righting wrongs. And our clients deserve our best efforts.

    We know the large corporations have a lot of power and use that power often putting their profits ahead of people’s lives. That’s why we do this.

    Most of our clients are hardworking regular, people. They care about their families and do their best to support them. None of them suspected just working could expose them to dangerous materials and those materials could kill them. Or their family members.

    But the corporations knew. They just chose not to tell their workers, and not to spend the money needed to provide sufficient protections on the job. 

    We think you deserve better. And we will help you get it.
