Decades of widespread use of asbestos in various industries has had a devastating impact on many people's lives, as they or their loved ones have developed asbestos-linked mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer that is often fatal.
If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma or lost a loved one to the disease, you could be entitled to compensation. The Davie mesothelioma lawyers at Gordon & Doner have the resources and experience you need to have a chance of obtaining the compensation you deserve. We work on a contingency fee basis, so we do not obtain compensation unless our clients do first.

Industries Where Use of Asbestos Was More Likely
If you worked in any of the following industries, particularly in the 1970s or earlier, there is a good chance you were exposed to asbestos or came into contact with those who were. Some of the industries that were most commonly exposed to asbestos include:
- Auto repair
- Auto manufacturing
- Air conditioning maintenance
You could have been exposed even if you did not work with asbestos-containing materials, as you could have easily breathed in asbestos fibers that were attached to another employee's hair or clothing. Also, if these fibers became attached to your hair or clothing, your loved ones could have breathed them in when you came home from work.
Even though the use of asbestos was never officially banned, companies should have known the mineral was dangerous. There has been evidence about the link between asbestos and mesothelioma since the 1920s.
Our Davie personal injury attorneys can collect the evidence you need to show that your employer was aware or should have been aware of the risks of this harmful mineral.

How a Davie Mesothelioma Lawyer Can Help You
Filing a personal injury claim to obtain compensation for damages is a complex, lengthy process. You will need to conduct a thorough investigation to uncover evidence that a previous employer used asbestos and knew, or should have known, of the dangers.
You will also need a variety of medical documentation of your mesothelioma diagnosis to show it was caused by your exposure to asbestos at your old job.
This is often too much to handle for one person, particularly if you have mesothelioma or are working full-time to support a loved one with the disease.
Our team of Davie mesothelioma lawyers is fully prepared to handle all aspects of your claim, from the investigation to negotiating a fair settlement and filing a lawsuit, if necessary.
We know where to look to try to find documentation of your former employer's use of asbestos. This can be one of the most difficult parts of any mesothelioma claim, as people usually do not contract the disease until decades after being exposed to asbestos at work.
If your former employer has set up a trust fund to deal with claims from victims of mesothelioma, we can work with the trust to obtain a fair settlement. Otherwise, we are prepared to negotiate with your former employer.
Sometimes, it is impossible to negotiate a settlement that covers all of a client's damages. In these cases, our Davie mesothelioma lawyers can take your lawsuit to trial.
You can rest assured your best interests will be at the forefront of everything we do, from the beginning to the end of the legal process. We have built a strong reputation for defending the rights of those injured through negligence.
