Experienced Injury-Asbestos And Personal Injury Attorneys

The attorneys at Nichol & Associates have been litigating matters on behalf of those injured due to the negligence of others for close to 40 years. We assist those injured in motor vehicle accidents, injured due to defective products and drugs, and who are injured on the job. We help those injured due to dangerous conditions on someone else's property. In the event of exposure to a toxic substance such as asbestos, we hold the manufacturers and distributors of such substances accountable.

Asbestos Exposure Injuries And Disabilities

At one time it was common to use asbestos on pipe coverings and flanges, insulation blocks, cloths and household products, cement blocks, and a number of accessories used on ships and in automobiles. Some manufacturers continued to use asbestos in their products long after the dangers of asbestos became known. Exposure to asbestos resulted in sheet metal workers, plumbers, carpenters and brake mechanics suffering asbestos-related illnesses such as mesothelioma. In many instances, household members of those exposed to asbestos also suffered from asbestos injury.

Sadly, diseases such as asbestosis and mesothelioma are chronic and often fatal. What is worse, these diseases often do not appear until many years after the exposure occurred. This makes it difficult to establish how the exposure arose and how to find the responsible parties.

While there have been reports about the dangers of asbestos exposure for decades, there was little action taken against asbestos manufacturers until recent times. Nichol & Associates has been trying injury and disability cases related to asbestos for four decades. We understand the consequences of exposure. With a close attention to detail, we also understand the laws regarding bringing such claims to court. This includes issues regarding statute of limitations and the tolling of statute of limitations in the event the illness arises after the exposure takes place.
