Settlements

Satterley & Kelley PLLC has successfully secured millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for clients across Kentucky as well as other states who were occupationally exposed to asbestos-containing products.

These clients have worked at numerous locations throughout Kentucky, including plastics manufacturing plants, electrical manufacturing plants, powerhouses, chemical plants, automobile repair garages and other industrial plants. They have been exposed to thermal insulation, phenolic molding compounds, brakes, gaskets, joint compounds and transite, among other products. We have also obtained settlements for families suffering from secondary exposure to asbestos, (e.g., spouses/children of a worker exposed to asbestos).
