As early as the 1930s, manufacturers of asbestos containing products were or should have been aware of the dangers associated with the use of their product. Their failure to warn the users of their product of these dangers and provide proper handling procedures makes them liable for the harm that the product caused. Asbestos exposure is known to cause non-malignant and malignant diseases. Non-malignant asbestos related diseases are Pleural Disease and Asbestosis. Asbestos related malignancies include Laryngeal Cancer, Pharyngeal Cancer, Stomach Cancer, Colon Cancer, Lung Cancer and Mesothelioma. We seek relief from the manufacturers on behalf of individuals suffering from one of these conditions as a result of asbestos exposure either through the bankruptcy court or through diligent and aggressive negotiations.
Manufacturers who have filed for bankruptcy, cannot be sued. Claims against the manufacturers of asbestos containing products are handled through bankruptcy trusts who organize and formulate specific procedures for the processing of claims and the disbursement of any funds. Reyes, Oshea & Coloca, P.A. is dedicated to diligently and efficiently filing asbestos bankruptcy claims and obtaining payment for our clients at the highest possible level allowed in accordance with guidelines set forth by the trust.
There are, relatively few remaining manufacturers of asbestos products that have not filed for bankruptcy. Against these still solvent companies, Reyes, O’shea & Coloca, P.A. litigate and negotiate aggressively and strategically on behalf of our clients and obtain the highest possible settlements and verdicts.
