Oklahoma Asbestos Cases - Advocacy for Victims of Serious Injuries or Wrongful Death

According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, Oklahoma is 5th largest producer of natural gasses and 6th largest producer of crude oil in the United States, and its economy has been hugely impacted by these industries. However, only recently have we begun to understand just how dangerous these industries were, exposing countless workers to asbestos over decades of production.

If you or a loved one have been the victim of life-threatening illnesses caused by asbestos exposure, then the Oklahoma attorneys at Carabin Shaw will fight for the legal justice and compensation that you and your loved ones deserve.

Impacts of Asbestos Exposure in Oklahoma

Exposure to asbestos can cause debilitating illnesses later in life, often taking decades to fully develop after the exposure. Asbestos victims in Oklahoma are entitled to seek legal justice and compensation, especially in cases where the illness has had a profound impact and cost on you or a family member’s life or, in the worst case scenario, has caused the wrongful death of a loved one.

Because of the delayed development of asbestos-related illnesses, we are only now seeing the long-term impact of asbestos, which was popularly used in construction and manufacturing fields throughout the early and mid-1900s. While future Oklahoma asbestos cases are likely to drop in number, there are still countless citizens of the state who are only now developing symptoms of related illnesses.

The substance caused serious health problems for those who have been exposed, which trusted lawyers for asbestos cases in Oklahoma can help victims to identify. However, the most common illness, and among the most deadly, is mesothelioma.

Can You Sue for Asbestos Exposure in Oklahoma?

Victims of exposure to this deadly contaminant can seek compensation for asbestos-related illnesses in the form of asbestos exposure lawsuits. Because these illnesses take so much time to develop, any victim has a statute of limitations of two years from the date of the diagnosis to seek legal and financial compensation.

Additionally, in cases where the exposure victim has died from their illness, the family members or beneficiaries may file a wrongful death claim for the loss of financial support, funeral and burial costs, emotional pain and suffering, and other damages. The construction of an asbestos exposure case depends heavily on the illness contracted by the victim, and whether the victim or the victim’s family is seeking compensation.

How Asbestos Exposure Attorneys Strengthen Your Case

The Mesothelioma Center attributes over 500 deaths to mesothelioma alone, only one of the many illnesses that exposure to asbestos can cause. These illnesses impact countless families across the state, and working with expert lawyers is the best way for you to seek the support you are entitled to.

At Carabin Shaw, the trusted attorneys on our team advocate for the families whose lives have been uprooted by exposure to this carcinogen. We will aggressively pursue justice on your behalf, ensuring that no one tries to take advantage of your vulnerable state after a family member’s diagnosis or death.

Asbestos exposure cases often require old documentation that can be difficult to get a hold of when necessary, or medical documentation that is hard to parse through. At every step of the way, you may be asked to prove that asbestos was responsible for your illness, over and over again. Hiring an asbestos exposure attorney means working alongside someone who will remove this burden from your shoulders and allow you to focus on the next steps for you and your family.
