Michael Ponterio and I have spent a large portion of the past fifteen years representing men and women suffering from diseases caused by exposure to asbestos. Tragically, there will likely be many more cases of asbestos disease in the years to come. The residents of Niagara County, including most notably the former workers of the Durez facility in North Tonawanda, will see more than their fair share of these cases.
Our office will continue to assist victims of asbestos exposure in these such cases. For the past several years, Michael and I have also been representing people injured by means of other than exposure to asbestos, such as automobile accidents, construction accidents, and as a result of medical malpractice. We are fortunate to be able to bring to this work our years of experience in litigating asbestos disease cases where we developed our skills as trial lawyers and forceful negotiators. If you are injured as a result of negligence, you do not have to call the face on the billboard on the highway. You can call our office, and you will receive prompt, courteous service from lawyers you have known and trusted for years.
The following article written by Michael A. Ponterio describes our successful efforts, culminating in a trial and verdict on behalf of a young woman injured in an automobile accident on Route 90 on her way back from Niagara Falls to the Buffalo area.
