Asbestos / Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma, a particularly aggressive and dangerous form of cancer, is caused by micro-fibers that splinter from asbestos and attach to the lungs. Asbestos was used for generations as a construction material in buildings and as a substance used by many industries including construction, shipbuilding, oil drilling, automobile manufacturing, industrial labor, and firefighting. Even when companies knew that asbestos was dangerous, many continued to expose their employees to the material. Those companies put the lives of their employees at risk and many people have since found out that they have mesothelioma or other asbestos-related conditions as a result of years of asbestos exposure.

Those companies whose negligence and use of asbestos caused mesothelioma in their employees or residents should be held accountable for their actions. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma due to asbestos exposure, we know that in addition to the difficulties of your disease you are likely facing a number of related expenses that you may not be able to afford, and we want to help you pursue much-needed compensation to cover these expenses.

Symptoms of Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is a very aggressive cancer that, once it appears, does not typically have a good prognosis. Some of the most common symptoms of mesothelioma include:

  • Wheezing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Abdominal pain
  • Chest pain
  • Fatigue

If you believe that your illness has been caused by asbestos exposure, our attorneys believe that you and your family should not have to shoulder the financial burdens of your illness on your own, and we want to help you fight for compensation.
