At Terrell Hogan, we take representing the injured very seriously. Since 1974 our legal practice has been dedicated to handling a broad range of personal injury and wrongful death cases, for individuals and their family members injured in automobile accidents, semi-truck and bicycle accidents, medical malpractice claims, and nursing home neglect. In 1981, our practice started handling asbestos exposure cases representing individuals exposed to asbestos products by companies who knew full well of the dangers of asbestos but put profits ahead of employee safety.
During the early 90’s and continuing for many years, companies filing for bankruptcy protection, due in part to personal injury claims brought about by asbestos exposure, established asbestos bankruptcy trusts. Today more than $30 billion dollars is held in these trusts for plaintiffs who have developed diseases brought about by asbestos exposure.
Since that time, Terrell Hogan has represented more than 4,000 asbestos victims and their families, recovering over $162,000,000 dollars in damages and settlements. We also handled many workers and some second-hand exposed family members that developed diseases such as mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis. Our Law Firm was the first Florida Law Firm to get an asbestos verdict for an injured asbestos victim. If you, a loved one, or a family member were exposed to asbestos at some period in your life and have been diagnosed with Mesothelioma or Lung Cancer we want to hear your story. Many individuals were employed in power and paper plants, involved in the construction or mining industries, worked in the automotive industry, or served in the armed forces. Now, years later they have developed one of these terrible and avoidable diseases and have a right to just and fair compensation for their injuries.
Our lead asbestos trial attorney, Alan Pickert specializes in bringing financial relief to families affected by Asbestos exposure. For over 26 years Alan has been representing innocent victims and their families confronting this disease. He has successfully represented 1000’s of asbestos victims, recovering over 100 million dollars in verdicts and settlements. Alan has a legal track record of winning verdicts for individuals injured in all types of personal injury accidents and even death cases, but the main focus of his legal practice is handling asbestos exposure cases. Hardworking men and women believed their occupations and working environments were safe but their employers knew the dangers of asbestos exposure but agreed to ignore it. Manufacturers and companies that knew of the hazards of asbestos exposure put profits ahead of safety.
It’s known that since the early 1930’s, asbestos manufacturers have known about the health risks associated with their products and concealed them from the general public. Even the US government waited until the 1970’s to take action and it was not until 1989 that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) banned all new uses of asbestos.
