Asbestos Exposure and Mesothelioma in New Jersey

Our previous experience representing mesothelioma victims in New Jersey is important because it means we are familiar with New Jersey 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.

The difficult part is asbestos fibers are often microscopic and many workers might not know how they were exposed. If you are unsure about how your asbestos exposure might have occurred that does not mean you can’t file a mesothelioma lawsuit. Our experienced mesothelioma attorneys in New Jersey have helped our past clients identify their asbestos exposures and they are ready to help you and your family as well.
