Leesburg, Florida, the county seat of Sumter County, has seen growth and economic development as a result of its increasing popularity as a retirement destination and its proximity to Orlando. Many of the retirees come from various trades, occupations, and industries and have been exposed to asbestos since it was widely used in shipbuilding, construction, manufacturing, and automotive repair. Terrell Hogan began representing victims of asbestos exposure in the 1980s with Florida’s first verdict in an asbestos lawsuit. Since that time, Terrell Hogan has represented thousands of exposed individuals with asbestos diseases such as Mesothelioma, lung cancer, and Asbestosis. Our lead Mesothelioma attorneys, Anita Pryor and Alan Pickert, are very experienced in obtaining financial compensation to those affected by asbestos exposure.
Exposure to Asbestos
If you or a family member was exposed to asbestos and have been diagnosed with Mesothelioma or lung cancer, we will do our upmost best to assist you. For over 26 years, Anita Pryor and Alan Pickert have been representing innocent victims and their families affected by occupational exposure to asbestos. They have successfully represented over 4000 asbestos victims, recovering over 135 million dollars in verdicts and settlements. They have also represented family members such as spouses and children of workers occupationally exposed to asbestos. These family members were exposed to asbestos when the worker unknowingly brought the deadly dust home on his/her clothes. The real tragedy is that the makers, manufacturers, and distributors of asbestos-containing products never warned the end users of the dangers of breathing asbestos fibers. Since the early 1930s, the makers of asbestos-containing products knew about these dangers, but failed to warn the end user, much less, the general public. Instead, these unscrupulous companies were only concerned about their profits, not the workers’ safety.
