Unlike some law firms, Blackwell and Associates handles cases for all diseases caused by exposure to asbestos, including pleural placques, pleural effusion, asbestosis, lung cancer, and mesothelioma.

Asbestos-related lung diseases are diseases that develop from exposure to asbestos fibers. Asbestos is a mineral that, at one time, was widely used in many industries.




Education and School Law

Employment Law

All employees have basic rights in the workplace -- including the right to privacy, fair compensation, and freedom from discrimination. A job applicant also has certain rights even prior to being hired as an employee. Those rights include the right to be free from discrimination based on age, gender, race, national origin, or religion during the hiring process.




Noise-Induced Hearing Loss

Hearing loss is the United States’ leading occupational injury in both prevalence and potential cost. Approximately 22 million Americans already may have suffered permanent damage to their hearing from excessive noise exposure. Continuous exposure to loud noises in the workplace can cause long-term hearing loss and tinnitus.

Product Liability

Product liability refers to the simple fact that if a company produces or distributes a dangerous, defective product, they are liable for any injuries that result.

Professional Liability

The attorneys at Blackwell & Associates frequently handle legal malpractice and medical malpractice cases.

A legal malpractice lawsuit is based on an allegation that a lawyer negligently performed legal services on behalf of a client in a claim or legal matter. At Blackwell & Associates, our experienced attorneys work hard to resolve these complicated disputes.




Workers’ Compensation

It’s not always in the best interests of employers or insurance companies to tell their injured employees what they need to know about their rights, so workers need someone on their side to protect their compensation rights. If you have had an accident at work or have an occupational disease, you may have a workers' compensation claim.
