I have been in contact with asbestos. What should I expect at my first meeting with an attorney?
During your first meeting with a lawyer, the most important thing to determine is how the worker was exposed to asbestos. In many circumstances, the person who exposed you to asbestos could be a parent or even a grandparent, but don’t let that frustrate you. There are many ways to determine where this individual could have worked and which asbestos-containing products could have been used on that work site.
If you’re the worker and you were exposed to asbestos but you don’t exactly remember where you could have worked around it or during what time period, it’s not a problem. There are ways that your lawyer can investigate, determine exactly where you worked and when, and what types of asbestos products were used on that job, and who could have manufactured the products that were used on that job.
