Mesothelioma is a type of cancer that is directly linked to asbestos exposure. The health hazards of asbestos have been known since the 1920s. Yet many manufacturers continued to use it in a variety of industrial settings and in numerous consumer products.
At Becker Law Office, our knowledgeable injury attorneys have decades of experience standing up for families devastated by a loved one’s mesothelioma diagnosis. Unfortunately, this type of cancer is nearly always fatal. Patients diagnosed with mesothelioma have only a 30 percent chance of surviving five years or longer after their diagnosis.
Manufacturers of asbestos or asbestos-containing products, and companies that installed asbestos in plants and factories, may be legally compelled to compensate victims who develop mesothelioma through exposure to their asbestos products. However, it is up to you to exercise your legal rights and to take the steps to seek compensation.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma or a similar asbestos-related disease, seek the guidance of a trusted mesothelioma lawyer. An experienced mesothelioma attorney at Becker Law Office can help you seek full compensation. Our goal is to help you recover the most monetary damages available to you.
