Asbestos manufacturers knew about the dangers of their product as early as the 1930s and 1940s, but they chose to do nothing to warn the general public. They hid what they learned about asbestos from even their own workers. It was only after the federal government initiated an investigation in the late 1970's that these corporations admitted that asbestos caused cancer.

Allen & Allen handled one of the first mesothelioma cases from asbestos in Virginia over 30 years ago. Our lawyers fought all the way to the Virginia Supreme Court, ultimately winning an excellent result for our client and paving the way for other asbestos victims to pursue claims.
Today, asbestos companies have set up trusts designed to compensate victims of mesothelioma and their families. Those who qualify may file a claim to recover their damages. Call Allen & Allen for a free consultation regarding your possible Virginia asbestos case at 866-388-1307.
Since mesothelioma can take years and even decades to appear after asbestos exposure, these cases are complex and pose unique challenges. Over time, most asbestos companies have changed their names, gone out of business entirely, or have been swallowed by larger corporations. Simply locating the party responsible for your injuries can be a painstaking process.

You must also prove when and where you were exposed to asbestos in order to receive compensation. To establish these details, we must locate witnesses to give testimony about events that occurred up to forty years ago.
