What mesothelioma means for its victims

Mesothelioma is an aggressive and deadly cancer caused by exposure to asbestos dust. When the dust is inhaled or swallowed, the fibers can settle in the thin layer of tissue that covers the majority of organs, though it most often affects the pleura, the tissue surrounding the lungs. Signs and symptoms of the disease vary but may include difficulty breathing and swallowing, chest and nerve pain, and a buildup of fluid in the pleura. Many of its victims worked in industries where they may have been exposed to asbestos decades before being diagnosed with the disease.

How we can help

You likely have many questions following your diagnosis of mesothelioma. While your doctor can answer your medical questions, we can present your options for recovering the compensation you deserve. It’s vital to select a law firm that has experience with mesothelioma. We will evaluate your case to determine:

  • Cause of your mesothelioma — Mesothelioma is caused by exposure to asbestos, a chemical commonly used to insulate homes and buildings and to make them more fire-resistant. Mesothelioma is therefore more common in individuals who worked with asbestos, including roofers, construction workers and shipyard workers.
  • Places and times of asbestos exposure — We will examine your history to identify places you may have worked or lived that might have exposed you to asbestos. Determining possible causes of your mesothelioma can be a key step to establishing liability and pursuing compensation.
  • Potential negligence — Many mesothelioma cases stem from an employer’s failure to identify asbestos in the workplace, but there are also many situations in which employers were aware of it and failed to remove it or to warn their workers about its dangers. Our firm is experienced in analyzing whether a company’s failures amount to negligence, and if so, we will do everything we can to prove it on your behalf.

Compensation for your illness can ease some of the burdens you and your family are dealing with. We offer a free consultation to discuss your situation and to see if we can help.
