Complete Workers’ Compensation Medical & Disability Benefits for Life from Mesothelioma at Out-of-Business Employer

A union electrician employed by an electrical contractor from 1952 through 1980, developed malignant mesothelioma, which is a rare form of cancer frequently associated with asbestos exposure. Our attorneys filed a workers’ compensation claim, but faced the challenge that our client’s employer had gone out of business several years earlier. So our attorneys located the insurance carrier who had issued the employer’s compensation policy; established that our client’s disease was related to his employment at the electrical contractor; and won our client total and permanent disability with full medical and disability benefits for life.
