Mesothelioma Linked to Asbestos Exposure
Mesothelioma is a malignant cancer of the lining of the lungs caused by exposure to asbestos, a known carcinogen that was used for decades in a variety of industries including construction, automobile manufacturing, mining and shipping.
Asbestos fibers can easily be transferred through physical contact and, through inhalation or swallowing, can travel through the lungs and become lodged in the pleura (the thin membrane lining the lungs). Victims can be people who worked directly with the product or who were exposed through contact with someone who worked with it.
Reports indicate that medical evidence dating back to the 1920s has linked asbestos to mesothelioma and other serious illnesses. However, manufacturers and companies refused to acknowledge the link and continued using the toxic material. The use of asbestos was banned from use in the U.S. in 1977.
In the majority of cases, the onset of mesothelioma symptoms is usually very slow, and may not appear until 30 to 50 years after exposure. Unfortunately, there is no known cure for this terrible disease and most patients diagnosed with mesothelioma are given less than a year to live.
As recourse for their suffering, those who were diagnosed with mesothelioma after being exposed to asbestos may be entitled to compensation. Our West Palm Beach mesothelioma attorneys can help you fight for the justice you deserve.

How an Attorney Can Help
In order to file a claim for compensation for mesothelioma, the victim must provide proof of exposure to asbestos, which may have occurred decades before being diagnosed. Exposure typically occurs in the workplace, and the delayed onset of the disease makes it difficult for patients to remember when or where the asbestos exposure occurred.
With years of experience representing mesothelioma victims, our attorneys will investigate your claim to identify a causal relationship between your exposure and diagnosis. We will comb through your medical records, work history, and other documents and evidence in order to build a strong case on your behalf.
We will work to demonstrate proof that your employer knew, or should have known, about the dangers of asbestos, yet continued to use the products, endangering the health of workers and their loved ones.
Defendants will put up a strong fight in an attempt to prove that the victim was exposed somewhere outside of their employment. This is why it is extremely important to have an experienced team of dedicated lawyers on your side.
Our West Palm Beach mesothelioma attorneys have an established record of defending the rights of the injured and will work tirelessly to get you the compensation you deserve.

Recovering compensation for mesothelioma can be a long and complicated process. Having the right team of lawyers behind you is critical to successfully recovering the compensation you deserve.
Because most cases of mesothelioma were developed as a result of exposure to asbestos in the workplace, employers and manufacturers of asbestos products are typically named as defendants.
The plaintiff can be someone who was directly exposed to asbestos (primary exposure), who came into contact with someone with direct contact with asbestos (secondary exposure) or who lost a loved one to the disease.
The two most common types of lawsuits filed on behalf of mesothelioma victims are personal injury and wrongful death claims. In some instances it may be possible to recover damages through a workers’ compensation lawsuit.
Our West Palm Beach mesothelioma attorneys have detailed knowledge of the intricacies involved in filing a mesothelioma lawsuit and will diligently work to build a robust case on your behalf.
