Since 1974, the law firm of Terrell Hogan has represented thousands of individuals and their families injured through the negligence and careless actions of others. Personal injury representation is practiced by a multitude of attorneys but handling product liability claims like the effects of asbestos exposure is a highly specialized field of law practiced by very few qualified attorneys.
Because of the nature of many companies who intentionally commit a wrongful act such as prescribing to the falsehood that being exposed to asbestos is not harmful, knowing full well of its dangers, billions of dollars have been set aside in a fund to compensate individuals who fall victim to this crime.
Many of these victims have retired to Panama City Florida from all parts of the country. Laborers, seamen, and employees who worked in mining, manufacturing, shipbuilding, and automotive fields where asbestos products were widely used and where this deadly exposure took place.
Coined “the world’s most beautiful beaches” Panama City Beach has served as the beach of choice for many residents of the southeast, Alabama, and Southwest Georgia, and with its proximity to the I-10 corridor and its roughly 3000 hours of annual sunshine makes this area an attractive place to live.
Neighboring communities of Lynn Haven, Southport, Tyndall AFB, Mexico Beach, and Port St. Joe have also been popular spots on Florida’s Gulf Coast for retirees coming from all walks of life and from all over the United States.
Terrell Hogans Asbestos Experience
Terrell Hogan started representing victims of asbestos exposure back in 1984 and actually received the first verdict in a lawsuit against an asbestos manufacturer in the state of Florida. Our lead trial attorney and mesothelioma expert, Alan Pickert, is very experienced in representing individuals diagnosed with Mesothelioma, lung cancer, and Asbestosis. Through his legal efforts, thousands of families have received financial compensation for the devastating injuries that exposure to asbestos causes. Alan has represented many panhandle residents who were exposed to asbestos when employed in the construction, mining, manufacturing, shipbuilding, and automotive trades.
Alan was also a former resident of Panama City Beach for many years and has represented numerous asbestos cancer victims from not only Panama City and Panama City Beach but Wewa and Lynn Haven as well. The St. Joe Paper Companies plant was located in Wewahitchka (locals call it WeWa) for many years and exposed many workers to asbestos contamination before it closed down. Alan represented over 15 asbestos-related cases from that plant alone.
Just like in Pensacola, where Alan lived during his formative years, residing with his family on the Pensacola NAS (naval air station), and in Cordova Park, where he also attended high school. Alan represented numerous retired Navy veterans and workers from the Cantonment Monsanto Plant where asbestos exposure ran rampant.
