Renowned for his expertise in the legal aspects of asbestos and mesothelioma, James F. Humphreys assists clients in personal injury cases pertaining to the two areas. Also known as asbestos lung cancer, mesothelioma is usually caused by direct exposure to asbestos. Because the effects of the disease can take more than 50 years to surface, it is important to seek legal representation from a firm with access to information that can accurately link former employers to the cause of asbestos exposure. James F. Humphreys & Associates, L.C. is one such firm; Mr. Humphreys and his partner take pride in their ability to achieve compensation for people who have gotten sick due to work-related asbestos exposure. They handle cases in West Virginia, Ohio, Kentucky and other states by associating with local attorneys when necessary. Additionally, the firm handles cases pertaining to other areas of personal injury, including car accidents, occupational diseases, railroad liability, wrongful death and product liability.
