Mesothelioma is a specific diagnosis for people who have been exposed to asbestos. The problem with asbestos exposure is that often times it has a latency period. This means it could take 30 to 40 years from the time the individual is exposed, to the time that they are actually diagnosed with mesothelioma.
As attorneys that handle Mesothelioma cases we take a complete history from individuals who have been exposed. We know which companies out there have used asbestos, despite the fact that they knew this shouldn’t have been done. We know the products they have, and by doing an investigation of potential exposures we can include a wider array of companies into potential litigation. Once we identify the companies, the litigation process is started. The case is generally on an expedited trial basis and moves along very quickly. In this way we can get more people compensated for the injuries that they’ve sustained as a result of the companies negligence.
