Canadian Asbestos Exposure
Motley Rice attorneys not only represent asbestos victims throughout the United States but also serve as U.S. legal counsel for Canadian provincial workers' compensation boards. These workers' compensation boards help affected workers to provide return-to-work rehabilitation, compensation, health care benefits and a range of other services in the event of work-related injuries such as mesothelioma and asbestos exposure-related diseases.
The Canadian workers' compensation boards have expended and will expend millions of dollars with respect to claims resulting from occupational exposure to asbestos-containing products. Under applicable law, the Canadian workers' compensation boards have a subrogation interest against non-employer third parties who may be responsible for a workplace-related injury. Pursuant to this legal authority, Motley Rice attorneys have represented Canadian workers' compensation boards since 1987 in seeking U.S. legal recoveries for the boards' costs associated with asbestos-related claims.
