Tampa Asbestos Exposure & Mesothelioma Claims

When asbestos fibers are inhaled or swallowed, they may become lodged in the lining of major organs like the lungs. These fibers can irritate healthy tissue for decades, causing mesothelioma to develop 10-50 years after exposure.

Our mesothelioma law firm has helped:

  • Over 6,000 families affected by asbestos exposure nationwide
  • Secure more than $9.3 billion from mesothelioma claims
  • Give our clients a powerful voice in the legal system for over 20 years

Companies knew the dangers when they used asbestos in their products — but they used it anyway, putting thousands at risk. We can help you hold these corporations accountable and pursue compensation for your family.

Our asbestos attorneys in Tampa can handle every step of the legal process as we fight for justice on your behalf. There are no hourly fees or out-of-pocket costs to work with us.

Contact our firm now for a free legal consultation. We can figure out how you were exposed to asbestos and find the evidence to prove it.

Filing a Mesothelioma Lawsuit in Tampa

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

You may be eligible for compensation in multiple ways, and many of these options do not require you to go to court:

  • Asbestos Trust Funds: An estimated $30 billion has been set aside by asbestos companies to pay people who have developed asbestos-related diseases.
  • Mesothelioma Lawsuit: Most mesothelioma lawsuits are settled out of courtz, though our mesothelioma attorneys in Tampa are prepared to present your case in trial if needed. Families can receive significant amounts of compensation from settlements.
  • Veterans Affairs (VA) Benefits: Veterans with mesothelioma may be able to access medical and financial benefits through the VA. We have VA-accredited mesothelioma attorneys on staff who can help veterans prepare their VA claims to access the benefits they are owed.

You’ll have an entire legal team on your side, with a senior attorney, several associate attorneys, paralegals, medical staff and investigators, so you get the personalized care and attention you deserve.

Statute of Limitations

Florida 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 asbestos lawyers in Florida as soon as possible after your diagnosis.

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