Asbestos Exposure and Mesothelioma

Asbestos exposure is the only known cause of mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer that is often fatal. When asbestos fibers are inhaled or ingested, they travel to the lungs and become lodged in the tissue there, where they can then slowly cause inflammation, scarring, and other health problems.

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 Dallas 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 Dallas

Filing a mesothelioma lawsuit can help you cover medical expenses and secure your family’s well-being for years to come. Our Dallas 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 the legal system.

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. If a settlement can’t be reached, our attorneys are prepared to present your case at trial, before a jury who will determine how much you are owed.
  • 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.

Statute of Limitations

Texas 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 Texas as soon as possible after your diagnosis.

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

While the asbestos industry has seen increased regulations in recent years, this harmful mineral continues to be used. In the Dallas area, a number of buildings and work sites have been cited as places that may contain asbestos. For example, the former W.R. Grace vermiculite insulation plant in West Dallas processed more than 396,900 tons of asbestos-contaminated vermiculite from 1967 until it closed in 1992.

Frank’s Story

December 7, 1941 is an iconic day not only because Pearl Harbor was attacked, but also because Simmons Hanly Conroy client and Waco native Franke Curre survived it, then passed away that same day 70 years later, from mesothelioma.

Before Frank passed, he worked with our Texas mesothelioma lawyers to file a lawsuit for his asbestos exposure during his time in the U.S. Navy. Our mesothelioma lawyers are proud to work with individuals like Frank and their families to secure the justice they deserve.
