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.
Mesothelioma can be difficult to diagnose because its symptoms are so similar to those of other illnesses. Symptoms also may not appear for 20-50 years after the initial exposure.
Sokolove Law has registered nurses on staff who can help you understand your mesothelioma diagnosis and treatment options.

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.
