Illinois is one of the states where most asbestos litigations take place. For quite some time now, asbestos has been considered a dangerous substance that can cause mesothelioma, a type of cancer that has no cure. Premises liability attorneys continue to help people with asbestos-related illnesses and their families obtain compensation for their treatment, alleviate their pain and suffering and cover other incurred losses.
Recently in Illinois, two asbestos lawsuits were filed on behalf of two people: one who is dead and one who is currently disabled and disfigured. One of the lawsuits named 75 corporations as defendants while the other lawsuit named 68.
