Mesothelioma is a devastating form of cancer that can significantly impact its victims and their families. This disease is caused directly by prolonged exposure to the material asbestos, which was used as a cheap insulator and fire retardant over the past century.
At Throneberry Law Group, we travel to clients across the country to investigate the root cause of their mesothelioma claims. We identify who is responsible for your exposure to asbestos, and aggressively litigate for compensation to cover the high-quality medical care you deserve.
What Is Asbestos?
Asbestos is a cheap and efficient insulator once widely used in machinery and hundreds of common products. It is now known to be the only cause of mesothelioma and asbestosis, diseases that devastate families across the country. Due to the long latency period of mesothelioma, many people only experience symptoms decades after exposure.
The Health Hazards of Asbestos
Although the health hazards of asbestos exposure were documented early in the 20th century, hundreds of companies continued to use asbestos and asbestos-containing products as recently as the 1980s, knowingly or negligently exposing millions of American workers to potential harm.
At the Throneberry Law Group, our lawyers work closely with individuals and family members nationwide to develop a thorough work history and life history to determine where and when asbestos exposure occurred. If a previous employer knowingly subjected you to exposure to asbestos, they should pay for the treatment to manage and alleviate symptoms of your mesothelioma or asbestos-related disease.
