Need Legal Help? You Need Belluck & Fox
Suffering an unexpected injury or illness can be a major setback. When your health suffers, the time and energy that was previously put towards career, family and personal goals is instead put towards managing symptoms and making a recovery.
Your choice of healthcare providers during this time has a major impact on how quickly and completely you bounce back. But if your injury was caused by somebody else, your choice of attorney is as important as the doctors you see for treatment.
Personal injury compensation is intended to return a victim to how they were before their injury or illness. It’s not possible to put a dollar amount on a person’s wellbeing, nor is a complete recovery always possible. But a lawsuit can go a long way towards ensuring that victims are properly cared for and that justice is served.
Serious injuries deserve serious legal representation. The New York personal injury attorneys at Belluck & Fox are nationally-recognized, award-winning lawyers who help people injured by the negligence of people and corporations.

New York’s Premier Mesothelioma Attorneys
Asbestos is a carcinogenic mineral fiber that for most of the 20th century was used in hundreds of products. The companies that sold asbestos knew for decades that their products caused deadly harm but they concealed this knowledge to the detriment of millions of American workers.
In New York state nearly 900 people each year die from the asbestos-related illnesses mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis. Nationwide around 3,000 people each year die from the incurable cancer mesothelioma. The asbestos epidemic was entirely preventable, but asbestos companies chose to sell their products rather than protect workers.
Decades later, many of these same companies are now paying for their negligence in the form of personal injury lawsuits. But these companies can afford excellent legal defense and try to avoid paying the people who got sick from their products.
Belluck & Fox, LLP, knows how to get results in asbestos injury claims. We have helped hundreds of New Yorkers and their families take on the asbestos companies and win compensation. In a recent year we had two mesothelioma verdicts of $32 million and $19.5 million. More recently we secured an asbestos verdict that was the largest-ever in Oneida County and the largest Statewide against an asbestos distributor.
Asbestos legal claims are complex and expensive, making it important to work with an attorney who has the experience and resources needed to prove that you were exposed to asbestos by a specific product at a specific place and by a specific manufacturer.
