KENTUCKY: Mesothelioma Lawyer Helps Asbestos Victims in KY

Kentucky mesothelioma lawyerFRANKFORT, Kentucky – Patrick Timmins, a mesothelioma lawyer from the national asbestos litigation firm of Levy Konigsberg LLP (“LK”) is continuing to help Kentucky mesothelioma patients and families obtain legal compensation from companies who manufactured, sold or used asbestos-containing products.

Patrick Timmins with over fifteen years of asbestos litigation experience, represents clients throughout Kentucky. Prior to joining LK, Patrick Timmins was a criminal prosecutor, zealously representing various victims of crime. Discussing the serious consequences of asbestos exposure in Kentucky, Patrick Timmins stated, “Many individuals engaged in various work trades routinely worked in hazardous conditions at Kentucky worksites. Our knowledge of the individual occupations, unions and trades that performed the backbreaking work that made these plants productive and successful helps us determine the best litigation and trial strategy for these workers. It is an honor to meet the victims and their families and learn their story. LK will tirelessly work on behalf of the families of these Kentucky workers.” Patrick Timmins’ aggressive representation on behalf of Kentucky families begins immediately, ensuring that each family’s case is placed on the trial calendar as soon as possible.

Due to the presence of numerous industrial employers throughout Kentucky, insulators, steel workers, pipefitters, laborers, plumbers, machinists, oven operators, powerhouse workers, mechanics and many other trades were routinely exposed to asbestos. Each year, approximately three thousand men and women across the country, including many in Kentucky, are diagnosed with mesothelioma, an aggressive asbestos cancer.

Kentucky residents have been exposed to asbestos at industrial facilities, mechanic shops, assembly plants, chemical plants, power plants and steel plants. Numerous independent contractors were also exposed to asbestos from their work at many of these facilities. Many of these asbestos exposure sites are located in and around the Kentucky portion of the Ohio Valley. However, the asbestos problem in Kentucky was pervasive, throughout the entire state. Many asbestos exposure sites were located in West Virginia and Ohio, where Kentucky citizens would commute daily to their places of employment. Many people in Kentucky also developed mesothelioma from non-occupational asbestos exposures, such as automotive work and home renovations, or from “second-hand asbestos exposure,” which occurred when work clothes contaminated with asbestos were worn home.

Mesothelioma lawyer Patrick Timmins shares the map of Kentucky – Ohio Valley worksites where most of asbestos exposure in KY occurred:

ATTENTION: Mesothelioma has no known cure and often causes severe pain, suffering, and other types of damage, such as loss of consortium, and loss of income. Additionally, due to the exceedingly high cost of mesothelioma treatments, many families exhaust savings and accumulate financial debt in order to pay for the medical expenses of their family member.

Under the law of most states, pain and suffering from mesothelioma may be compensated through the award of money damages, usually obtained with the help of experienced mesothelioma attorneys. In some states other types of damages may also be recovered.

Asbestos litigation affords mesothelioma victims the opportunity to receive financial compensation and hold accountable the companies that caused their asbestos exposure.
IMPORTANT: If you or your family member has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you should get in touch with a mesothelioma lawyer as early as possible to determine if you have a mesothelioma case and to:
  • Preserve your rights to bring a legal action against the responsible parties within the limited time frame allowed by law, known as statute of limitations;
  • Obtain maximum compensation in your case by being able to:
    • Preserve evidence and establish facts of the asbestos exposure while the claimant is still alive and able to provide information;
    • File and resolve a lawsuit against the responsible parties before they file for bankruptcy or, if they already have, to obtain compensation before their bankruptcy trust funds run out of money;
  • Expedite your case, as courts tend to give higher priority to mesothelioma lawsuits where the claimant is still alive.
