Mesothelioma & Asbestos Lawsuits Process
When a family is confronted with a diagnosis of mesothelioma their lives are immediately turned upside down. Primarily caused by exposure to airborne asbestos fibers, most cases are not diagnosed until 30 years or more after exposure when the symptoms begin to appear. Also called “asbestos cancer,” mesothelioma is highly aggressive and is resistant to many standard cancer treatments. Treatment often involves surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. Currently, there are no known cures for the disease.
At the same time families are struggling with the medical issues at hand, it is necessary to commence legal proceedings to protect their rights and preserve all the information necessary for the legal proceedings. We believe that the companies that are responsible for the patients’ grim prognosis should be held accountable for what they put families through by having claims or lawsuits filed against them.
Below, we have responded to some of the most common questions from our clients and their families. Asbestos cancer, typically affecting the lining of the lungs, can be a difficult disease to understand, and if you or a loved one have been diagnosed, you are certain to have numerous questions.
