Why the need of the lawyer?
One should always try to be safe and not get exposed to deadly material. If a person is affected by asbestos working in a mine, he or she can file a lawsuit against the company. As it was their duty to provide protection and they failed to do so. This is when the plaintiff (employee) files a lawsuit against the defendant (the company). After filing the lawsuit, with the help of the legal services or lawyers, the employees can get compensation for their losses.
