It’s all about you. We want to help you make the right legal decisions.

We strive to help you make confident law decisions. Finding trusted and reliable legal advice should be easy. This doesn't influence our content. Our opinions are our own.

Workers compensation is only one way in which you can recover for asbestos exposure. You would institute a workers compensation case against your employer; however, there are other parties who may also be liable to you for the exposure.

Asbestos manufacturers and suppliers as well as the manufacturers of ineffective safety equipment have been held liable for asbestos exposure and the resulting damages. In addition, your family members, such as your spouse, may be able to institute an action for damages for loss of your companionship and damage to the relationship, loss of economic benefit and opportunity, and emotional distress.

Any recovery you or your family makes in a civil case should not affect the amount of your workers’ compensation benefits. In each case, you are being compensated for different types of liability or different types of damages.
