How Our Capital District Asbestos Law Firm Can Help You
Belluck & Fox’s primary practice area is asbestos litigation. Asbestos has been used for decades in commercial, industrial, construction and even household products, despite its serious health risks. It is a carcinogen proven to cause malignant mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis and other life-threatening illnesses.
Companies that manufactured asbestos products knew of such dangers but did not warn workers and consumers.
Because asbestos diseases have a long latency period, people who were exposed to the toxic fibers decades ago are just now being diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses such as pleural mesothelioma.
Our firm fights fiercely for the rights of asbestos victims and their loved ones.
Our Albany mesothelioma attorneys demand maximum compensation from the company (or companies) responsible for our clients’ asbestos exposure. Here’s what you can expect when you choose to work with the skilled New York asbestos lawyers at Belluck & Fox:
- Our compassionate lawyers provide one-on-one attention. To start, a partner from our firm will meet with you in your home, at a health care facility or wherever is most convenient for a free case consultation. We can also discuss your case over the phone, if you prefer, and answer any questions you may have.
- Our attorneys will document your work history and any time spent in the military. This helps us start our investigation into how you were exposed to asbestos-containing materials.
- We also will gather medical records about your diagnosis and your treatment. In addition, we may bring in medical experts to consult on your case.
- Our team will conduct a highly detailed investigation. We may track down former colleagues and coworkers to learn what they remember about asbestos products being used on the job or in the service. We also may gather blueprints of buildings, ships or shipyards where you worked or were stationed.
- Once we determine which asbestos companies should be held responsible, we will make a strong claim for maximum compensation based on the extensive documentation we have gathered. This could mean filing an asbestos lawsuit, filing a claim with an asbestos bankruptcy fund and/or pursuing government benefits.
- Granted, most asbestos companies would rather settle a claim than risk going to trial. But if your case must go before a judge and jury, you won’t have to worry about traveling to court to testify. Our knowledgeable asbestos litigators will always put your health needs first and advocate fiercely on your behalf in court.
Building a strong asbestos case involves acquiring many pieces of information, but our extensive experience allows us to work efficiently.
Your Belluck & Fox Capital District trial attorney will likely request that the court resolve your case within one year because of the severity of mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases.

Legal Services – Asbestos
Our award-winning Belluck & Fox Capital District legal services secured more than $1 billion in settlements and verdicts for asbestos victims and their loved ones. Our mesothelioma lawyers have extensive experience successfully fighting for full and fair compensation for clients through a number of avenues:
Asbestos Bankruptcy Funds
If the company responsible for your asbestos-related disease is no longer in business, or if the company has filed for bankruptcy, you may still be able to obtain money from a trust fund set up for victims and their families. Pursuing payment from an asbestos trust fund is not the same as filing a mesothelioma lawsuit. However, an experienced asbestos lawyer can help identify and prove which trust fund(s) may owe you money.
Mesothelioma Settlements and Lawsuits
If the company (or companies) responsible for your asbestos illness is still in business, your lawyer may seek compensation through a mesothelioma lawsuit.
In many cases, companies will decide to settle these lawsuits to save the expense of going to court. But a seasoned asbestos attorney who has extensive trial experience will prepare your case thoroughly in case your claim does need to go before a jury.
Many military veterans, particularly Navy veterans, faced asbestos exposure during their service and have since been diagnosed with mesothelioma or other asbestos-related diseases. If you’re eligible for monthly VA benefits, our knowledgeable lawyers at Belluck & Fox will handle your VA benefits claim at no charge if we are also managing your trust fund claim or asbestos lawsuit.
Social Security Disability Benefits
If you or a family member is diagnosed with mesothelioma before reaching retirement age, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. The Social Security Administration recognizes mesothelioma as a debilitating illness, but it still needs extensive proof of your disease in order for you to obtain benefits. We can help you document that.
Workers’ Compensation Benefits
Both mesothelioma and asbestosis are considered occupational illnesses. If you had to leave your job because of an asbestos-related illness, you may be able to pursue workers’ comp benefits.
If you or a family member has been diagnosed with mesothelioma or another asbestos-related disease, please call us or contact us through our website now to learn more about your legal right to financial compensation.
