Jobs with a High Risk of Asbestos Exposure
If you worked in any of these industries, particularly before asbestos was banned in the mid-1970s, there is a much greater likelihood that you were exposed to this harmful mineral:
You could have been exposed even if you did not work directly with materials containing asbestos. Asbestos fibers could have become airborne after falling on other workers’ clothing, skin or hair. These microscopic fibers are easily inhaled by humans, and when they become lodged in the lining of the lungs, they are difficult to expel.
Even though asbestos-containing materials were widely used in many industries, there was evidence as far back as the 1920s that mesothelioma was linked to asbestos exposure. Employers that refused to acknowledge that link and continued using asbestos should be held accountable for their actions.
If you believe you were exposed to asbestos on the job, you need legal representation from a reputable Savannah mesothelioma lawyer. Our skilled attorneys will carefully review your situation and inform you of all of your legal options.
The personal injury attorneys at Nye Law have a long track record of helping victims of negligence obtain just compensation for their injuries and the effects of those injuries on their loved ones.

How an Experienced Savannah Mesothelioma Attorney Can Help
If you were exposed to asbestos, it could take decades for you to develop symptoms. That makes it difficult to pinpoint exactly when and where you were exposed.
Your old employer may have gone out of business and you may have no idea how to track down the parties who should be held liable for your mesothelioma diagnosis. Even if you do track down the responsible parties, they will most likely put up a tremendous fight to avoid being held liable and paying compensation.
That is why you need an experienced Savannah mesothelioma attorney working on your behalf. We know how to sift through work histories and other documents to pinpoint when you were exposed to asbestos.
We are well-educated on the medical evidence of the dangers of asbestos and the history of when this information was available to employers.
Our goal is to build a rock solid case that will offer you the best chance of recovering all of the compensation that you are entitled. Your diagnosis is not your fault, and those who are at fault must be held responsible.

Filing a Mesothelioma Lawsuit
If you contracted mesothelioma from asbestos exposure at work, you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit against your former employer for negligence. You could recover compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other damages caused by your diagnosis.
If you lost a loved one to mesothelioma caused by on-the-job asbestos exposure, you may also be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit to recover compensation for the emotional and financial side effects of your loss, including:
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of financial support
- Pain and suffering
- Final expenses
It is very important to seek legal counsel as soon as possible because you have a limited amount of time to file either of these types of lawsuits. Our Savannah mesothelioma attorneys offer a 100-percent free consultation to review your options.
Our caring attorneys have seen the devastating effects of a mesothelioma diagnosis for victims and their families and we want to do our part to help during this difficult time.
We will work tirelessly to recover all the compensation you are entitled. While compensation cannot change what happened, it can provide some financial stability in a time of need.
