In nearly every instance, mesothelioma is a fatal disease that robs victims of their future, even as it devastates their entire family. We have spent more than 15 years helping families deal with this cruel disease, and in that time we have learned how negligent third parties did nothing to warn the public about the threats of asbestos exposure, which is the primary cause of mesothelioma.
What Is Mesothelioma?
Mesothelioma is an aggressive form of cancer that most often attacks the lungs, abdomen and heart. Doctors have identified asbestos exposure as the main cause of the disease, and because it has a long latency period of 10 to 50 years, many patients are not diagnosed until they are in their late 60s and early 70s.
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral found throughout the U.S. It was widely used in the past as insulation and as a bonding agent, because it has outstanding fire and heat resistance.
When asbestos is in solid form, it does not present a significant threat to public health, but when asbestos is crumbled or turns to powder, it becomes airborne and can be swallowed or inhaled.
Once the microscopic asbestos fibers enter a person’s body, they lodge in the lining of the lungs, abdomen and heart and cause damage to the cell structure, which results in mesothelioma.
Who Is Responsible?
We have found that many incidences of asbestos exposure were caused by third party negligence, typically by an asbestos manufacturer or an employer who failed to provide warnings or protective equipment to workers who were in direct contact with asbestos.
Because of this negligence, many people were unaware that they were exposed to asbestos, and only learned of their exposure after being diagnosed with mesothelioma. We are committed to ensuring that negligent third parties are held accountable for their actions.
