Tenacious North Carolina Workers' Compensation Lawyers Tackle the Most Complicated Cases

Since 1995, our experienced attorneys have worked hard to provide Greensboro residents with dependable counsel. Visit one of our offices to discuss your case with a compassionate lawyer.

What is asbestos?

Asbestos has a long history in the construction industry in Greensboro and throughout the United States. Asbestos was valued for its heat- and sound-resistant properties, until its dangers became known about 40 years ago. When asbestos is agitated, it hangs in the air and is inhaled. Once in the lungs, the tiny asbestos particles embed in tissue and often remain unnoticed for many years, until mesothelioma is diagnosed. This cancer is rarely cured. It can cause pain and suffering for your entire family. Some scientists believe that even washing the clothes of a family member who worked with asbestos increases the risk of mesothelioma.

At Lanier Law Group, P.A., we have extensive experience helping individuals who were exposed to asbestos obtain workers' compensation in Durham and throughout North Carolina. When you retain us, you have a team of tireless fighters in your corner.

Types of injuries caused by toxic fumes

Modern construction methods involve the use of a variety of toxic chemicals, including those found in glues and solvents. Other toxic chemicals, such as benzene, are components of construction products, while still others, including dioxin, are byproducts of industrial processes. Workers in Greensboro and throughout the state who are regularly exposed to these chemicals may develop life-threatening diseases. If you have contracted an illness that you believe was caused by your job, you may be able to obtain workers' compensation in Burlington and elsewhere in North Carolina. Chemicals such as benzene, dioxin and those found in solvents and two-part glues can cause the following injuries:

  • Brain damage
  • Cancer
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Asthma
  • Leukemia

From our hard-working staff to our highly qualified attorneys, everyone at the Lanier Law Group in Winston-Salem and in our other 10 offices is focused on helping you get workers' compensation.
