Yes. Even after a loved one has died from mesothelioma or another form of asbestos-related cancer, it may still be possible to bring a claim against the responsible company.
Employers and product manufacturers have relied on the use of asbestos, often exposing their employees, those employees’ families, and innocent consumers to the deadly mineral fiber. Some of these companies have long profited off the use of the mineral without notifying their employees or customers about the dangers. That has meant that many Minnesota families have had to deal with the unexpected loss of their loved ones.
At Sieben Polk, P.A., we have been handling wrongful death claims related to asbestos diseases since 1979. We saw the need for this reputation and have built a national reputation for it. We represent clients whose family members died from asbestos-related diseases such as:
- Pleural mesothelioma
- Pericardial mesothelioma
- Peritoneal mesothelioma
- Asbestos lung cancer
- Esophageal cancer
- Colon cancer
- Ovarian cancer
- Testicular cancer
Whenever we take a wrongful death case, we are cognizant of the fact that part of our work is to honor people whose lives were lost too soon. We work closely with every client to understand their specific needs and goals for the claim. We never force a particular goal or point of view on our clients but listen and understand. We take into account your emotional state, your economic needs and your wishes to hold the appropriate parties responsible for your loss.
You may not even have to file a lawsuit. Many asbestos-disease claims can be handled by making a claim against an existing trust fund.
As a result of our individual attention to each client, we have been successful in thousands of asbestos-related cases and have recovered millions of dollars in compensation for the costs and expenses of dealing with asbestos-related diseases.
Our clients, other attorneys and even national law firms who advertise in Minnesota send new clients our way because they know we have ability, resources, and access to evidence that few firms can match. We invite anyone who has lost a loved one to an asbestos-related disease to contact us for a free, confidential consultation about your legal rights and options.
