Asbestos Exposure and Mesothelioma in California

Our previous experience representing mesothelioma victims in California is important because it means we are familiar with California job sites where asbestos exposure occurred.

Asbestos is a deadly mineral that has been used in thousands of products in multiple industries including manufacturing, steel working, shipbuilding and more. When asbestos fibers are inhaled or ingested they increase a person’s risk of contracting an asbestos-related disease like mesothelioma.

Our experienced attorneys have helped our past clients identify their asbestos exposures and they are ready to help you and your family as well.
