If you have ever worked in Allied Chemical plants, you may be at risk of developing an asbestos -related disease, such as asbestosis, lung cancer or mesothelioma. 

Allied Chemical bought the coke producer Semet Solvay, and the two companies were interchangeable in name for some period during the 20th century. Semet Solvay had an Ironton plant of the same name for many years.

What Kind of Settlement Can an Allied Chemical Asbestos Exposure Lawyer Secure for You?

A chemical plant asbestos exposure lawyer can secure various types of settlements for individuals or their families affected by asbestos-related illnesses. The specific settlement amount and type will depend on several factors, including the extent of exposure, the severity of the illness, and the responsible parties involved. Potential settlements may include:

  • Compensation for Medical Expenses: Your lawyer can help you recover expenses related to medical treatments, including hospitalization, surgeries, medications, and ongoing care.

  • Lost Wages: If you or a loved one has been unable to work due to asbestos-related illness, a settlement may cover lost income, both past and future.

  • Pain and Suffering: You may be eligible for compensation for the physical and emotional pain caused by the illness, as well as a diminished quality of life.

  • Wrongful Death Damages: In cases of asbestos-related deaths, lawyers can secure compensation for surviving family members, including funeral expenses and loss of financial support.

  • Punitive Damages: In cases of extreme negligence, lawyers may seek punitive damages to punish the responsible parties and deter similar conduct in the future.

  • Workers’ Compensation: Depending on the circumstances, a lawyer can help you navigate the workers’ compensation system to secure benefits.

Your lawyer will assess your case, gather evidence, and negotiate with liable parties to maximize the settlement amount that best serves your needs and helps you seek justice for the harm caused by asbestos exposure.
