Diseases & Disorders Caused by Exposure
Pursuing maximum compensation in West Virginia
Corporations’ lack of transparency may hinder your ability to determine the cause of your illness. In fact, denial of responsibility is the norm when a company discovers that its product is tied to a medical condition. However, you have recourse to hold the negligent entities accountable for your disease.
Established in 1976, The Calwell Practice, LC focuses exclusively on representing plaintiffs who have suffered damages because of the wrongdoing of another person or a corporation. Our attorneys steadfastly pursue all means of justice available to you.
Asbestos is a naturally occurring group of minerals that have been heavily mined and commercially used since World War II in cement, plastics, insulation, roofing, fireproofing and sound absorption materials, vehicle brakes, tiles, paints, coatings and adhesives. Until the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) banned its use in many products and passed restrictive regulations, individuals were exposed to asbestos in their homes, workplaces and schools. Workers in the construction, shipbuilding and automotive industries were placed at even greater risk, as were their families, subjected to secondhand exposure.
