Mesothelioma Lawyer

an experienced mesothelioma lawyer can help you navigate a complex mesothelioma to help ensure adequate compensation

Since the early 1900s, corporations have known about the link between mesothelioma and asbestos, yet made a conscious decision to expose workers (and their families) to this hazard. Because of this, 2,500 people (in the U.S.) each year are diagnosed with mesothelioma[1], a deadly cancer affecting the lining of the lungs.

Researchers estimate more than a million people will die from in the next 10-15 years worldwide[2].

One of the challenges faced by mesothelioma lawyers in prosecuting a mesothelioma lawsuit centers around the long latency period associated with the disease – typically 15 to 50 years[3]. Because of the length of time between exposure to asbestos and the manifestation of the illness, and because of the high mortality rate associated with mesothelioma, many times vital information is lost.

Another unique challenge facing lawyers centers around the patients themselves. Patients struggling with a mesothelioma diagnosis and grieving families are often hesitant to add another fight to their careworn day.

We understand that your number one priority is your mesothelioma treatment, and we will never do anything to interfere with that. We also understand that legal action is not appropriate for everyone. Unfortunately, however, our experience shows that all too often these giant corporations are choosing profits over people and until they are forced to pay they will continue on with their blatant disregard for the health and well being of their employees and their consumers.

At Beasley Allen, our team of mesothelioma attorneys and support staff understand that is a devastating cancer that harms many families each year. We also understand that your lawyer must do more than just handle the claim on your behalf. We want to help your family make it through a very difficult time and we want to make certain the manufacturers of these unsafe asbestos products compensate you fairly.
