Bailey Glasser’s Asbestos and Lung Disease Group
Bailey Glasser’s Asbestos and Lung Disease Group represents men and women who have been diagnosed with various forms of cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. Asbestos exposure is the largest cause of occupational cancers in the country, and a significant cause of other diseases and disabilities. Cancer caused by exposure to asbestos typically takes from 20-60+ years to develop. The long delay between exposure and the development of the cancer – known as the latency period – means most victims are unaware their cancer may have been caused by asbestos exposure decades ago.
Our Bailey Glasser team, knowledgeable in all types of asbestos exposures and diseases, meticulously investigates each client’s history to determine where asbestos exposure occurred. Our team’s seasoned legal skills – coupled with a deep knowledge of the types of products that contain asbestos, and an extensive understanding of how exposures occur – allow us to determine which parties to sue, including employers, schools, manufacturers, suppliers, and/or producers of asbestos-containing materials.
Please note: Tobacco use does not prevent you from filing a claim against and receiving compensation from asbestos manufacturers, suppliers, and the companies that purchased and used those products in work environments. Many of our clients who were exposed to asbestos and developed cancer were also cigarette smokers.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with an asbestos-related disease, you may well be in the middle of a fight for your life. Bailey Glasser is here to represent your interests. Bailey Glasser’s highly experienced asbestos attorneys are ready to fight for you against the corporations and industries that caused your cancer.
Our attorneys have handled over 3,000 cases and recovered over $2 billion in settlements and verdicts for asbestos related cases. A few of our successes include obtaining the following:
- $50 million verdict for a steel mill worker who died from mesothelioma after being exposed to asbestos
- More than $20.8 million in settlements for workers who were exposed to asbestos and contracted and died from mesothelioma
- More than $22 million in settlements for workers, many of whom were cigarette smokers, who were exposed to asbestos and died from lung cancer
- More than $1 million in settlements for workers who were exposed to asbestos and developed asbestosis, a non-malignant scarring of the lung.
No matter where asbestos exposure occurred – at home, work, or school – Bailey Glasser’s team will guide you through the complex field of asbestos litigation.
