Support resources available for asbestos litigation situations

You may be one of many South Carolina residents who have suffered adverse health effects related to your job. Perhaps you were injured in an on-the-job accident and had to take time off work to recover. Then again, your situation may be much more permanent, such as those who have suffered an incurable disease or serious respiratory illness related to asbestos. Such situations often lead to asbestos litigation, which can be stressful and complicated if you try to go it alone in court.

Thankfully, there are support resources available to you and your family so that you can focus on getting appropriate treatment and enjoying as a high quality a life as possible while someone else advocates on your behalf to seek recovery for your losses. There may have been years between your initial asbestos exposure and diagnosis of your illness. In that time, you may have suffered undue financial hardships related to medical care, time off work or other expenses associated with the symptoms you were experiencing.

Litigation is often prompted when injured workers learn that their employers were aware of asbestos risks in the workplace but failed to fully inform them or properly train them for their work. If your circumstances are similar, it is critical that you act sooner rather than later with regards to seeking experienced legal guidance to pursue justice in court. There are statutes of limitation in most states regarding how much time may pass between injury onset and filing a legal claim for negligence.

Richardson, Patrick, Westbrook & Brickman, L.L.C., in South Carolina, are fully prepared to help you take a stand against a negligent employer, installer, landlord or leasing agent whose failure to keep you safe resulted in your injury. Our experienced legal team will help you investigate the events that prompted you to enter asbestos litigation to help identify possible liable parties. From there, we will remain by your side throughout the litigation process to help you seek compensation for the damages you've suffered.
