ASBESTOS

Mesothelioma and asbestos-related illnesses are numerous and complicated and we know the field.

Asbestos exposure and its alleged harms continues to be a highly litigated issue and we’ve been involved in dozens of cases. We’ve administered jury questionnaires, prepared expert witnesses and designed deliberation groups to assess jury reactions to primary case themes, arguments and evidence.

We’ve tested questions and cases related to:

  • Asbestos exposure from welding machines and Asbestos Containing Products;
  • Performance of mask and respirator protection for asbestos and silica dust;
  • Asbestosis vs. idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis diagnoses; and
  • The alleged synergistic effects of smoking and asbestos exposure in causing lung cancer.

Our graphics simply illustrate the science and concepts important in this genre.

We’ve worked on the front lines of asbestos litigation for nearly two decades. We know the issues and we can help.
