Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that was widely used throughout the 20th century due to its strength and heat-resistant properties. However, asbestos has since been linked to dangerous health conditions like mesothelioma, lung cancer, and other asbestos-related diseases.
After being inhaled or ingested, asbestos fibers can become lodged in the lining of certain organs and irritate healthy tissues and cells.
Over time, the tissues and cells that have been affected by asbestos may mutate and become cancerous. In most cases, this does not happen until 20-50 years after the initial exposure.
Even people who have not directly worked around asbestos can be diagnosed with mesothelioma. Often, this is due to secondhand exposure to asbestos.
Secondhand exposure happens when someone who works around asbestos or asbestos products unknowingly brings the fibers home on their clothes or in their hair, potentially exposing their entire household.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, our team may be able to pursue compensation on your behalf. Contact us today to learn more.

Asbestos Trust Funds

Many companies attempted to declare bankruptcy to avoid paying, but the U.S. government ordered these companies to establish asbestos trust funds for victims of asbestos exposure.

Asbestos trust fund claims don't require you to go to court, and you may be able to access compensation from multiple trust funds if you were exposed to a variety of asbestos-containing products.
