Answer

People who are diagnosed with mesothelioma have usually suffered exposure to asbestos at some point in their lives, whether through their own work, the work of a family member, or as a bystander. Through no fault of their own, mesothelioma victims can experience serious symptoms and complications that include trouble breathing, severe chest pain, significant discomfort and swelling in the abdomen, and weight loss. Unfortunately, there is no permanent cure for mesothelioma, and the cancer can lead to death.

While the hazards of asbestos exposure were known for decades, many companies continued to expose workers, their loved ones, and the public to asbestos. That's why you will want to hire attorneys who offer four decades of experience handling mesothelioma and asbestos cases and have a vision of what is fair and right. You'll want representatives who've won million dollar verdicts and settlements for clients suffering from mesothelioma. 

Our firm wants to help you understand and protect your legal rights, and is ready to fight for you. We do not charge for an initial consultation, and we only get paid if we are successful getting you financial compensation. There is no financial risk for you to seek compensation with us.
