Legal Referral Program
The Institute has established and monitors a legal referral program for sheet metal workers and contractors suffering from asbestos exposure. Referrals are made to attorneys who handle claims against asbestos product manufacturers. SMOHIT’s program is coordinated by one of the premier asbestos litigation firms in the country, and with good reason. It is estimated that tens of millions of dollars will be recovered from asbestos companies over the next five years to pay for the damage caused by asbestos—including loss of income, medical expenses, damaged health, and shortened life expectancy.
SMOHIT has identified a leading asbestos litigation firm to assist in providing legal resource information. For more than 30 years, attorneys with Motley Rice have fought for workers, as well as their families, who have been harmed by asbestos exposure.Built upon advocating for the rights of workers, consumers, families and investors, Motley Rice is committed to seeking justice and fighting for clients in a broad range of socially-conscious causes in areas including:
- securities and consumer fraud
- aviation disasters and passenger rights
- catastrophic personal injury
- wrongful death
- harmful medical drugs and devices
