When people suffer serious injuries or are killed due to negligence, there is a grievous story that must be told. As attorneys who represent people who have suffered serious injury because of exposure to toxic substances such as asbestos, benzene, mold or other toxic materials, we must know how to tell the injured person’s story. It is our job to tell the story clearly after having fully investigated all aspects of the events leading to the harm and building as strong a case as we possibly can.

This is the kind of work we do at Tomes & Hanratty, P.C., in Freehold, New Jersey. Helping injured people who cannot stand for themselves comprises the entirety of our legal practice. We do it because our attorneys genuinely want to help people and to stop the kinds of unlawful practices that caused them harm in the first place.

More On Asbestos

Asbestos was used to insulate buildings for years all the way through the 1980s. It was extensively used in shipyards and in car brakes and clutches. In fact, New Jersey was home to several asbestos manufacturing plants. Years prior to that, studies began linking asbestos exposure to an increased risk of cancer, in particular, lung cancer and mesothelioma. More
