At McLaughlin Investigative Group Inc. we understand the devastating effect asbestos leaves on its unsuspecting victims their families, but we firmly believe that not all of the defendants listed in these law suits belong there. In many cases these defendants are only listed in a lawsuit because they were in business during an era when asbestos was sometimes used in specific products and there only “wrong doing” is they are still in business today. Many of these business get sued with little or no proof linking their products to the plaintiff’s exposure.
We help companies defend themselves in these product liability cases by documenting the plaintiff was not exposed to their products and also by looking at alternative exposure issues.
We closely work with the law firms from around the country who specializing in asbestos defense litigation, especially in Massachusetts, Rhode Island and New Hampshire. We gather evidence by tracking down witnesses from decades ago, researching old public documents and begin to the tedious process of investigating these claims. When an individual suffers from mesothelioma because of his or her exposure to asbestos and then files a lawsuit against the company we work with defense councils to get the facts verified. Our purpose is not to make a strong case even when the company is at fault but explore all the possibilities and facts so that a fair defense can be mounted.
We carry out thorough background checks on claimants: where they have been working, what have been their lifestyle and recreational habits, what has been their family health history, have they actually been exposed to asbestos where they’re claiming to have been exposed – basically, we specialize in developing alternative exposure in asbestos defense litigation. Along with myriad other cases we have investigated occupational asbestos exposure and help defense counsel for automobile, boiler manufacturing and joint compound-sheetrock industries.
Our team of highly experienced investigators are well-equipped to carry out sophisticated investigations. We exercise extreme sensitivity while carrying out the investigations and speaking to witnesses, while always being extremely professional in our approach.
Until next time…
