If you live in the Ft. Lauderdale area of South Florida and believed you have come into contact with asbestos particles, hopefully that exposure was not extensive nor prolonged and the asbestos dust did not contaminate either you or a loved one from second-hand exposure. There is a general misconception about the use of asbestos products being limited to very specific industries and that the asbestos itself posed no real danger to American workers, military servicemen and women, and their families. Unfortunately, nothing could be further from the truth because the use of asbestos products and the resulting contamination was so wide spread, that millions of Americans have been exposed in all types of jobs ranging from shipbuilding and ship chandlery, to papermills, power companies, mining, construction, the automotive industry and even the naval and military branches of the government.
At Terrell Hogan, we understand that being diagnosed with any kind of debilitating disease is incredibly difficult for the patient as well as the family. What can make matters worse is that asbestos exposure and contamination constitutes one of the greatest harms one party can inflict upon another. Asbestos cases were totally avoidable, and the companies that used, mined or manufactured asbestos knew full-well the dangers of asbestos, but put profits ahead of their employees’ health and well-being.
If you and/or a family member has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, asbestosis or lung cancer, as a result of being exposed to asbestos products, you are facing what might be described as “asbestos poisoning”, which is among the worst injustices perpetrated on you, the American worker.
Righting One of the Greatest Wrongs!
Since 1984, Terrell Hogan has represented thousands of asbestos exposure victims and received tens of millions of dollars in settlements and awards as restitution for an injustice that should never have taken place. Those monies are a small conciliation for the wrong that has been perpetrated, but will help serve to ensure your family’s future financial security.
Asbestos is a deadly toxin that has wreaked havoc on tens of millions of families throughout the United States. Many American workers spent their lives employed in industries where asbestos was used and now in the twilight of their years have retired to places like sunny, Ft. Lauderdale Florida, only to have contracted this deadly disease.
For these retirees, having the comfort and enjoyment to live out their golden years, in peace and harmony is now a shattered dream. The only thing left to do for an individual or family who suffers from this avoidable disease, is to hire an Asbestos Law Warrior who will fight to get those injured, just compensation for their injuries.
