Your Legal Rights

Protecting Your Legal Rights in Asbestos Cases

Contact Our Pittsburgh Mesothelioma Attorneys

When the interests and resources of an individual are matched up against those of an employer, a product manufacturer or an international conglomerate, that individual may feel as if he or she has no chance of success in the face of such a large corporate structure. However, justice demands that our legal system create equal legal options for all, including placing the concerns of plaintiffs at the forefront.

Diagnosed with the asbestos cancer known as mesothelioma? You may have only a limited time in which to assert your right to file a lawsuit. For experienced lawyers who can provide the legal help you need — contact us for a free consultation today.

At Robert Peirce & Associates, P.C., we represent people in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and throughout the Eastern United States who have been diagnosed with the asbestos cancer known as mesothelioma and those who have lost loved ones to this disease.

Making the Law Work

If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you may have the right to sue previous employers, property owners, product manufacturers, distributors and others that may have played a role in your exposure. Generally, these suits will be brought under the legal theories of products or premises liability. You must be aware, however, that once a conclusive diagnosis is made, you have only a short time in which to file a claim before your right to sue disappears.

If a member of your immediate family has died as the result of asbestos exposure and mesothelioma, you may have the right to sue for compensation from the responsible parties under your state's wrongful death statute. Again, however, time is limited and the need to contact a Pittsburgh mesothelioma attorney as soon as possible is great.

Asbestos Bankruptcy Trusts

In some cases, the party or parties responsible for asbestos exposure may be bankrupt or no longer in business. In these situations, victims may be able to secure compensation by filing a claim with one of the many asbestos bankruptcy trusts that have been established by defunct companies.

Our firm has extensive experience with these types of claims so call us today!
