More Than 30 Years of Fighting Hard and Winning Big For Injured New Yorkers
Asbestos is a toxic, naturally occurring mineral that used to be found in thousands of products – such as home and boat insulation, brake pads, and floor and ceiling tiles until approximately 1980, when it was determined to cause a myriad of life-threatening asbestos exposure-related diseases, including asbestosis, lung cancer, and mesothelioma. Evidence suggests that when asbestos fibers are inhaled, they get trapped in the lungs, causing scar tissue build-up and lesions. These lesions lead to difficulty in breathing, serious diseases, and, too often, death.
If you have been injured as result of the careless actions of another party that exposed you to asbestos, you have legal options. Throughout the decades, many companies have been held liable for irresponsibly exposing people to asbestos. Gersowitz Libo & Korek, P.C. is a personal injury law firm that is dedicated to obtaining compensation for individuals suffering from illness due to exposure to asbestos. We have what it takes to successfully handle your claim, while providing you and your family with the support that you need.
Exposure to Asbestos
Companies and manufacturers that have routinely dealt with asbestos have known for more than 70 years that the inhalation of asbestos fibers can be associated with life threating illnesses, such as lung cancer and mesothelioma. Nevertheless, these companies negligently and recklessly exposed thousands of workers to these carcinogenic minerals on a daily basis. However, for decades these individuals chose profit over people’s health by continuing to manufacture and use products that contain asbestos.
Some of the common workers who have been affected by the adverse and deadly side effects of asbestos include:

I can't possibly say enough good things about my experience with this law firm. It's difficult to imagine going through this trial without Gersowitz, Libo, & Korek and in particular, Jeff Korek. Articulate, intelligent, kind, and direct were my first impressions of him and until I saw him in the courtroom, I had no idea that these qualities would make him unstoppable at trial. In a lawsuit that spanned almost 7 years, I put myself in his hands and wouldn't hesitate to do it again. Difficult at times but Jeff and his team were sensitive to those difficulties and made me understand that they would help and protect me during the process. I came to trust them implicitly. Jeff and his team not only secured my ability to pay for future medical treatments and chemotherapy, but he made sure that my children's future was secure. At Gersowitz, Libo, & Korek, they fight for you like you're family and treat you as such. Thank you, Jeff, for fighting for my future and helping me stay in the fight with you!
