Wrongful Death Archives

Is It Time To Move Forward With Your Talcum Powder Claim?

Here at The Law Offices of Wallace & Graham, we recently provided a white paper online addressing the recent cases exploring a potential connection between talcum powder and ovarian cancer. In that paper, we emphasize the importance of understanding those cases properly. What do they say? Equally important, what do they not say? 

Family recovers $14M in mesothelioma case

Mesothelioma is a terrible disease that impacts the lungs of individuals throughout the nation, including North Carolina. It is fatal and often tied to asbestos exposure that may have occurred decades before the disease is diagnosed. When that exposure is tied to an occupation someone once had, it may be possible for the person who is ill to recover damages in a lawsuit. The family of a man with mesothelioma, who lived in another state, recently succeeded in that endeavor.

What can I be compensated for in a wrongful death claim?

In the wake of a loved one's death, it can be enormously challenging to see past the grief, sadness and frustration you may be feeling. In cases where a loved one was very sick, people may have been experiencing these emotions for months or years before the person succumbed to the illness.

What happens if a victim dies before asbestos case is resolved?

Diseases that are caused by exposure to asbestos can be especially devastating because of how aggressive they can be. Further, they are often diagnosed only after they are already in advanced stages, meaning treatment may not be as effective as it could have been and a person's life expectancy is decreased to a matter of months or even weeks.

What types of damages can be awarded in asbestos claims?

If you have lost a loved one due to mesothelioma or asbestosis, money may very well be the last thing on your mind right now. You are probably more focused on handling funeral arrangements, going through estate planning documents and trying to manage the grief and sadness of the loss.

Negligence, misinformation alleged in wrongful death lawsuit

Exposure to toxic chemicals and materials can do severe and long-term damage to any person who ingests them. We often talk about asbestos exposure on this blog, but the truth is that asbestos is just one of many harmful chemicals that can do irreparable damage to a person's health.
