At the New Orleans, Louisiana, law office of Didriksen, Saucier & Woods, PLC, people tend to come to us when they have severe issues in their lives and that they cannot handle by themselves. If you have tried to handle your injury by yourself, and if is no longer manageable to do so, you could still have options available to maintain your way of life.
You may not have to exhaust your resources while attempting to manage an injury that was someone else’s fault. Even chronic illnesses, such as mesothelioma, that come from injuries far in the past could entitle you to compensation.
We often find that our clients do not fully understand the history behind mesothelioma. Asbestos has been used for many years, but we are now learning that exposure to it has the potential to lead to painful, deadly illnesses in people later in life. Unfortunately, you may be the victim of a negligent individual or organization that continued to use asbestos — even after knowing how deadly it might be.
There is also the question of whether the responsible party took all of the precautions necessary to protect you from exposure. If you believe that someone was negligent in this regard, you may want to pursue legal action to cover the expenses your pain, suffering and medical costs represent.
You do not have to figure out the best course of action by yourself. You are not alone, even in the face of dire illnesses such as mesothelioma. Please continue on our main website to read more.
