Yes, even if the company you worked for is no longer in business, there are avenues for collecting the compensation that mesothelioma sufferers deserve.
Since mesothelioma is only caused by exposure to asbestos, and the vast majority of asbestos exposure occurs in the workplace, occupational exposure is the largest contributor to mesothelioma in the country.
By working with an experienced mesothelioma attorney, we can help you determine whether your previous employer created an asbestos trust before it went out of business, or whether pursuing claims against asbestos manufacturers is more likely to produce a positive outcome.
Many companies that relied on asbestos, and sickened their workers, were forced to create substantial funding mechanisms to provide for their employees who became sick with asbestos-related diseases later.
This is true for asbestos manufacturers as well.
Even though the company you worked for is no more, you still have a valid claim for compensation when you’ve developed mesothelioma in New Orleans.
The lawyers at The Gertler Law Firm can help you get the funds and resources you deserve.
