Mesothelioma Connected to Asbestos
The only known cause of mesothelioma is from long-term exposure to asbestos, a finely ground mineral that was commonly used as insulation in homes, buildings, factories and ships for decades. Asbestos is currently heavily regulated and banned in certain materials.
Although most people who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma were employed in an industry that caused first-hand exposure to asbestos, others may have had contact with the substance through second-hand exposure. Because of the mineral’s light weight composition, asbestos fibers are easily spread through the air, where they can attach to clothing and are transferred through physical contact.
Unfortunately, mesothelioma is an incurable form of cancer that develops at a very slow rate, often taking decades for any signs of symptoms to show. Most patients die within the first year of their diagnosis.
At Gordon & Doner, we understand how hard a diagnosis is for the victim and his or her family. If you or someone you loved has been diagnosed mesothelioma after being exposed to asbestos, do not hesitate to contact us. Our Palm Beach Gardens mesothelioma attorneys will fight for your right as a victim of someone else’s recklessness or negligence.

Work-Related Mesothelioma Diagnosis
Most people were diagnosed with mesothelioma due to previous occupations that required frequent expsoure to asbestos. The dangerous effects of frequent asbestos exposure were known for decades before the U.S. began to regulate the mineral, but companies still forced employees to work in unsafe environments that were heavily laden with asbestos.
Workers in certain industries were most prone to asbestos exposure:
- Construction workers
- Manufacturing workers
- Shipyard workers
- Factory and plant workers
- HVAC and auto mechanics
Mesothelioma can take as long as 30 to 50 years to develop, long after victims have retired or moved to a different profession. If you or someone you love developed mesothelioma because of their profession or through contact with someone who worked in an asbestos environment, you may have grounds to file a claim.
Our Palm Beach Gardens mesothelioma attorneys have helped workers who were exposed to asbestos hold their employers accountable for their reckless disregard for their employees’ safety.
