Asbestos and Mesothelioma

Each year, around 3,000 individuals in the U.S. are diagnosed with mesothelioma, a rare and aggressive cancer found in the lining of your lungs due to asbestos exposure. Meanwhile, the largest number of asbestos-related deaths come from lung cancer. 

The asbestos industry knew their products were causing cancer, and yet they still deliberately avoided including this information on their warning labels. Fearing the impact on their profits, manufacturers and sellers of asbestos products suppressed and hid these dangers for many decades.

All cases are unique, with many factors affecting your eligibility for compensation. Some of these include the state of filing, if the individual is living or deceased, type of exposure, year of exposure, and when the diagnosis happened. We're here to help you uncover the facts and stand by your side to navigate these inner workings. We consider it our responsibility to give a voice to those diagnosed with mesothelioma or lung cancer, and we have a team of experienced mesothelioma attorneys ready to help.

Because asbestos was so often used in manufacturing, construction, and industry, people from all walks of life were frequently exposed. Jobs routinely brought workers into contact with asbestos include construction workers, auto mechanics, firefighters, shipbuilders, teachers, and miners.

    Asbestos is a fibrous material that is commonly used in goods like textiles, paper, and cement products as well as ceiling and floor tiles. Even second-hand asbestos exposure — such as washing a loved one's work clothes or giving a child a hug after returning from work — can cause mesothelioma later in life.

    If you or your loved one has suffered a serious injury or died due to asbestos exposure or mesothelioma, you may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, loss of wages, and pain and suffering.
