Fact: There are many asbestos lawsuits and claims because Big Asbestos knowingly exposed millions of Americans to this deadly product and covered up the dangers for profit. Asbestos has killed hundreds of thousands of Americans and 10,000 more are killed each year. Lives could have been saved and lawsuits prevented if Big Asbestos was transparent about the dangers decades ago.
They knew, as we all did, that Banton's screen presence was devastating. The combination of his pithy one-liners and trade union protest finally forced Hardie to the negotiating table.
But anyone close to Banton knew his oxygen mask was no act. He, like anyone with asbestosis, became increasingly breathless walking along the street. Stairs were a particular struggle. And he did not need to be told he had a high chance of developing the asbestos cancer mesothelioma.

At the Law Offices of Thomas J. Lamb, P.A. we are here to help people who have been seriously injured and the families of people who have died.
Some of our cases involve mesothelioma and lung cancer caused by exposure to asbestos dust many years ago. Other cases concern serious side effects due to the use of unsafe drugs, some of which are later recalled by the pharmaceutical company.
All of our cases are handled on a contingency fee basis, which means that there is no payment for our legal services until after the case is finished and we have been successful in getting legal compensation paid to our client.
We believe that these types of serious personal injury or wrongful death cases should be filed as individual lawsuits – as opposed to being made part of a large class action lawsuit. From our years of experience we have found that this individual case approach tends to produce a better result for the case while, also, allowing us to give our client the personal attention their case deserves, from start to finish.
If you want us to investigate a possible case, or would just like to learn more about how we work, please feel free to contact us by email or phone (800-426-9535).
