Asbestos Exposure and Mesothelioma

Asbestos exposure is the primary cause of mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer that is often fatal. When asbestos fibers are inhaled or swallowed, they travel to major organs like the lungs and become lodged in the tissue there.

Over time, healthy cells and tissues become inflamed and scarred due to the fibers. This long-term damage can lead to asbestos-related illnesses.

It can take 10-50 years after exposure for an asbestos-related disease like mesothelioma to develop. By the time symptoms appear and the disease is diagnosed, the prognosis is often bleak.

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma or another asbestos-related disease, a mesothelioma lawyer in Los Angeles may be able to help you pursue compensation and justice. Contact us for a free, no-obligation consultation to learn more.

Filing a Mesothelioma Lawsuit in Los Angeles

Filing a mesothelioma lawsuit can help you cover medical expenses and secure your family’s future well-being for years to come. Our Los Angeles mesothelioma lawyers can make the process as easy as possible for you, and guide you through the legal system.

Each senior attorney operates within a small legal team composed of several associate attorneys, paralegals, medical staff and investigators. This structure ensures you will receive personalized attention while your case works its way through this complex legal process.

There are a few different ways you may be able to recover compensation, and most of them don’t involve going to court:

  • Asbestos Trust Funds: Around $30 billion has been set aside by asbestos companies to compensate people who have developed asbestos-related diseases.
  • Lawsuit Settlement or Verdict: Most mesothelioma lawsuits are settled out of court, before they ever reach the trial stage. That said, our attorneys are prepared to take every case the distance, presenting it at trial if a settlement can’t be reached.
  • Veterans Affairs (VA) Benefits: Veterans with mesothelioma may be able to access medical and financial benefits through the VA. We have VA-accredited mesothelioma lawyers on staff who can help veterans prepare their VA claims to access the benefits they are owed.

Statute of Limitations

California has a unique set of laws called statutes of limitations that restrict the amount of time mesothelioma patients and their family members have to file a claim. For this reason, it’s important to contact a mesothelioma lawyer in California as soon as possible after your diagnosis.

If you’d like to talk to a Los Angeles mesothelioma attorney about a potential case, we are available to meet with you in your home, virtually, or at a location of your choosing.
