Getting Justice for Asbestos Exposure and Mesothelioma Victims
If you have contracted this rare form of cancer, we offer a free initial consultation to answer your questions about asbestos exposure and the legal options available to you.
What Caused My Lung Cancer?
The only known cause of mesothelioma is exposure to asbestos. Asbestos is a mineral that was commonly used in insulating pipes, fire-retardant materials and certain other products such as brakes. Mesothelioma can develop years after the exposure to asbestos occurred.
Individuals that are most at risk of being exposed to asbestos include:
- Pipe-fitters and welders
- Steam and power plant workers
- Big rig truck drivers and mechanics
Although a workers’ compensation claim for mesothelioma may be possible, it can be a challenge. Talk to our attorneys in Southaven and Hernando who understand all areas of personal injury law and can talk you through your rights and the legal process.
Legal Options for Mesothelioma Victims
Whenever a person is diagnosed with mesothelioma, finding the cause is a matter of tracking down when and how the person was exposed to asbestos. The lawyers at Chatham Gilder Howell Pittman can help you do this.
Our lawyers work hard to find every possible way you could have been exposed to asbestos. Then we will file a lawsuit against all companies that may have been responsible for that exposure. We don’t need to be positive which exposure caused your cancer. However, the stronger your proof of exposure, the stronger your claim.
