Asbestos Investigation and Litigation
Even after asbestos was widely recognized for its health risks, American industry continued to use the toxic material in a variety of products and materials - up until the late 1980s. This neglect caused thousands of people across the country to develop mesothelioma and other related diseases, all of which could have been avoided.

While there are a number of ways in which people were directly exposed to asbestos, some individuals have been diagnosed with serious medical conditions after indirect exposure (or, secondary exposure) to the harmful substance. In many situations, this type of exposure occurs when a worker who is directly exposed to asbestos carries that asbestos home on his or her clothes or hair. When this happens, any family or friends who come in contact with that worker are exposed to harmful asbestos fibers.
For many years, men were predominantly exposed to asbestos at their places of work. The women who typically washed their husband’s clothing were at an elevated risk of expsure and subsequently often suffered from mesothelioma or other asbestos-related diseases. In the case of secondary asbestos exposure, the investigation process is often much more complicated, but a skilled mesothelioma attorney can help.Litigating for the Treatment and Care You Deserve
Mesothelioma is a devastating disease that is often only caught too late in the process, leaving its victims as little as 12-18 months left to live. With quality medical care, you can extend that time frame and alleviate the painful symptoms that accompany the illness. Unfortunately, quality medical care is an expense many families can not afford.
