Premises Liability and Mesothelioma Lawsuits

Property owners and employers are required to provide a safe workplace. If you were exposed to asbestos and your employer knew or should have known of the dangers, you may have grounds for a premises liability lawsuit.

The attorneys at Wallace & Graham, P.A. have litigated mesothelioma cases throughout the United States, as well as asbestosis and lung cancer. In a free consultation, we can explain your rights and what options you may have to recover compensation. Call 800-849-5291 today.

Who Is Responsible for Mesothelioma Due to Asbestos Exposure?

In most states, you cannot sue your employer for job-related illness. However, you may be able to file suit against a third party if:

  • A subcontractor introduced asbestos at your workplace
  • You worked for a subcontractor and the owner was negligent
  • You were an independent contractor
  • You lived near a factory and inhaled airborne asbestos

Many of our clients were itinerant workers who traveled around the country doing construction and maintenance jobs at power plants, shipyards, oil rigs and factories. Through a premises liability lawsuit, Wallace & Graham, P.A. traces the employment history to verify where the person worked, what duties they performed and what asbestos exposure they would have had. Our lawyers know the asbestos-containing products widely used in the era from the 1940s to the 1970s.

Secondhand Exposure

All of our clients were innocent victims, but many developed mesothelioma or asbestos disease through secondhand exposure — children and spouses of workers, people who breathed construction dust, sailors who slept inches from asbestos-lined pipes. A premises liability claim is one avenue for justice. In some cases, the property owners knew of the danger and callously downplayed it in pursuit of profit. Owner negligence does not apply in all states; we work with local counsel to determine what law applies in your case.
