How Our NYC Asbestos Law Firm Can Help You
Table of Contents
Asbestos litigation is our law firm’s primary practice area. Despite being known as a toxic carcinogen, asbestos was commonly used for many years in industrial, commercial, and household products. It has long been shown to cause devastating health problems such as malignant pleural mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis and other life-threatening illnesses.
Our knowledgeable New York asbestos trial attorneys at Belluck & Fox have devoted more than two decades to helping asbestos victims and their families get justice for the harm they have suffered. We hold manufacturers of asbestos-containing materials accountable because they knew of the dangers of their products but failed to warn workers and the public of the risk.
Clients have come to recommend our experienced legal team because we:
- Provide a free consultation during which we sit down with you to explain all your legal options and answer all your questions
- Identify every potential source of compensation, which may include asbestos trust funds as well as government benefits
- Employ all the necessary resources to thoroughly research and document your history of exposure to asbestos
- Help navigate the complex claims process, as well as handle any potential challenges that come up
- Take the burden off you and your family by managing all the paperwork, communication, and legal legwork involved in your claim
If you or a family member has been diagnosed with mesothelioma or another asbestos disease, don’t try to deal with the stress and pressures alone. Please contact our New York City law firm by phone today at (212) 681-1575 or contact us through our website.

Legal Services – Asbestos
The Belluck and Fox NYC legal services offer extensive experience successfully fighting for full and fair compensation for our deserving clients. Our legal team has secured more than $1 billion in verdicts and settlements for asbestos victims and their families through means such as:
Asbestos Bankruptcy Funds
The company(s) responsible for your asbestos-related disease might have established a trust fund for victims and their families, even if the company is no longer in business. Pursuing payment from an asbestos trust is different from filing a mesothelioma lawsuit. But you still need an experienced attorney to identify and prove which trust fund(s) may owe you money.
Mesothelioma Settlements and Lawsuits
Your mesothelioma lawyer may demand compensation through a lawsuit if the company or companies responsible for your asbestos-related illness are still in business. In many cases, companies opt to settle these lawsuits rather than take on the expense of going to trial. However, our asbestos trial attorneys have extensive courtroom experience and will be prepared if your claim does proceed to a jury.
Many veterans, particularly those in the Navy, faced asbestos exposure during their time in the service and have since been diagnosed with mesothelioma or asbestos diseases. At Belluck & Fox, our legal team will handle your VA benefits claim at no charge as we manage your asbestos lawsuit and/or trust fund claim.
Social Security Disability Benefits
You may be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits if you or a family member has been diagnosed with mesothelioma before reaching retirement age. However, you will need to provide extensive proof of your disease in order to obtain benefits.
Workers’ Compensation Benefits
You also may be able to pursue workers’ comp benefits if you had to leave your job due to an asbestos-related illness.
Many people do not develop symptoms of asbestos disease until many years after they were exposed. However, you may still have a right to compensation, even if you were exposed years ago. Call us or contact us online now to learn more about your legal right to financial compensation. Our experienced New York City work injury attorneys can answer all your questions and provide you with the advice and legal assistance you need to move forward.
Belluck & Fox is nationally known for our top litigators, thanks to ratings by Best Lawyers, Super Lawyers, Martindale-Hubbell and other professional accolades. More important to us, though, is that our former clients recognize our mesothelioma lawyers for their compassion and service during very difficult times:
“I want to express my sincere thanks to you and your team for your hard work and dedication to my case, words cannot express my heartfelt gratitude in how you and your team have change our lives for the better.” – Veston Lorde
“I would like to say that everyone at Belluck & Fox is absolutely wonderful and that the culture of your company must come from the top. Our family appreciates all that you have done for us.” – former client
Our Top-Rated Lawyers Fight for Maximum Compensation

Depending on your circumstances, we may seek payment for:
- Medical expenses, including bills for surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, medication, hospital stays, and any other treatments you have had or may need in the future

- Pain and suffering
- Wrongful death damages if you have lost a relative to the disease
