Mesothelioma – Asbestos Exposure
Asbestos and Mesothelioma
Capretz & Associates represents people who have been injured as a result of asbestos exposure in the workplace. If you worked with or near asbestos as a contract worker and developed malignant mesothelioma, asbestos-related cancer or another asbestos-related disease, you may be entitled to compensation.
After the initial exposure to asbestos, malignant mesothelioma can take up to 15-30 years before it appears. Mesothelioma is a rare cancer of the lining of the lungs or abdomen, caused by inhaling or swallowing microscopic asbestos fibers. Asbestos can also cause other lung diseases such as lung cancer and asbestos.
If you have already filed a lawsuit due to asbestosis, and now you have also been diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma or lung cancer, you may be able to file another lawsuit.
If the above applies to you or if a loved one has died after working with or near asbestos, e-mail us or call us today, toll free at: (800) 351-8588. Because the law limits the time an injured person may file a lawsuit for injuries resulting from asbestos exposure, we encourage you to contact us immediately.
