Answering Your Asbestos Questions

If you are considering filing an asbestos exposure claim, you probably have a lot of questions. At D'Amico Law Offices, L.L.C., we know that having some answers upfront can help you decide whether to move forward with a claim.

The following are some commonly asked questions about legal claims related to asbestos. If you have more questions, please call our office in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. We will be happy to answer them.

I'm not sure I have a case. What should I do?

If you know you have an asbestos-related disease, you worked around asbestos at any point in your life, or you have regular close contact with someone who did, it would be wise to speak with a lawyer as soon as possible.

Unfortunately, it is impossible for us to tell you whether you have a case without talking to you first. In a free initial consultation, we can learn more about your situation and give you a better idea of whether you have a strong case.

If I'm a smoker or used to smoke, can I still file an asbestos claim?

Yes. While smoking and asbestos exposure can both lead to lung cancer on their own, current medical research shows that asbestos exposure can make it even more likely that a smoker will develop lung disease. Do not let the fact that you currently or used to smoke deter you from seeking help.

How are your services billed?

At our firm, we work on a contingency basis. That means that you will not owe us anything unless we recover compensation for you. Even if we are successful, we will be paid a percentage of your recovery, so you won't have to pay anything out of pocket.

How much will I recover if my case is successful?

The amount of compensation you may recover depends on several factors. If your lawsuit is successful, your age, how you were exposed to asbestos, and how severe your condition is will all be considered when determining how much compensation you should be awarded.
