Not everyone exposed to asbestos develops mesothelioma, though the more frequently you are exposed to it, the greater your risk. Some of our most common clients include millwrights, insulators, pipefitters, and boilermakers – people who typically work with asbestos on the job.
Though lung cancer and mesothelioma are typically confused, they are actually two distinct and different types of cancer. Mesothelioma is a cancer of the lining of your organs, either your heart, abdomen or lungs. Lung cancer, as the name implies, is a cancer of the tissue of your lungs.
Mesothelioma is a very rare type of cancer that forms typically on the lining of either your lungs, your heart, or your stomach. Mesothelioma is caused primarily by exposure to asbestos, typically in the workplace. There is a latency period from the date of exposure to when you actually develop the disease that makes diagnosis and sometimes identifying the source of exposure very difficult.
All you really have to do is answer some questions that we’ll have for you about your background or your loved one’s background whether that’s hobbies such as automotive repair or home remodeling work that may have exposed you to asbestos or what you did on the job. Once we learn what you did and where you did it, we can really take that information and compare it against the database we built up over the years. So we take the the onus off of you; you just have to tell us what you know and we can use that information to make it easy on you and get the responsible parties involved in the lawsuit.
We start the process just by meeting with you or your loved one to find out what they did for a living, where they did it, whether they had any other pursuits like automobile repair or home remodeling that might have exposed them to asbestos products. We then take that information and compare it to the database that we’ve built up over the twenty-five years that we’ve been helping people exposed to asbestos by looking at the trades: electricians, we’ve represented steel workers, we’ve represented automotive workers, we’ve represented drywall workers we’ve represented, people in all sorts of construction trades and we’ve represented them in numerous locations. Chances are that we’ve represented somebody who may have performed your same trade in your same location and by knowing what you did and where you did it, we usually already have a pretty good idea of the responsible parties.
