Be prepared when defendants deny asbestos claims

If you have lost a loved one due to an asbestos-related illness, you may want to strongly consider filing a wrongful death lawsuit. These claims can help compensate families for death stemming from negligent behaviors, and they can prove to be crucial sources of relief.

However, filing a claim can be very complicated. Parties named in these claims often deny them and may go to great lengths to avoid taking any legal or financial responsibility. This is why it can be essential to be represented by an attorney who can anticipate common defenses and fight against them.

There are several ways that companies or individuals may try to deny any wrongdoing when it comes to asbestos.

For example, a defendant may try to say that they had no knowledge that asbestos posed a threat to the victim. They may accuse the victim of having been the one who violated certain asbestos regulations. They could also argue that it was not their products or workplaces that led to the victim's illness. In some cases, they may even try to claim that a victim's illness was the result of something other than asbestos.

Any of these defenses can be extremely frustrating and upsetting for the people who have suffered a loss, but they are unfortunately common strategies to avoid taking blame.

The attorneys at our law firm are quite familiar with the process of challenging a defendant's denial and we can help people strengthen a wrongful death claim by speaking with witnesses, scrutinizing workplace policies, collecting evidence and investigating other cases against defendants.

We understand that these claims and legal strategies can be overwhelming and intimidating, especially for people already grieving the loss of a loved one. That is why we are focused on guiding people through this process and helping them pursue the compensation and legal accountability they may deserve.
