Mesothelioma is a serious cancer that occurs in people who have been exposed to asbestos. If someone you love has been exposed to asbestos fibers, and has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, it is important to speak with an experienced lawyer as soon as you are ready.
You probably already know that mesothelioma is a serious cancer that is found in people who have been exposed to asbestos. It is a serious diagnosis that will likely change your family forever. What you might not know is that taking legal action can hold negligent businesses responsible for the asbestos exposure. It can also give your family the resources necessary to care for a sick loved one and to move forward after a loss.
At the law offices of Rosenbaum & Rosenbaum, P.C., we take legal action against companies that manufactured, sold and installed asbestos products. Evidence shows that these companies knew of the danger associated with asbestos — maybe as early as 1920, but that they failed to take action to prevent harm. Workers were put in harm's way without any type of warning as to the danger.
An Ongoing Problem
Unfortunately, you are not alone. Each year in the United States, thousands of patients are diagnosed with mesothelioma, lung cancer and other asbestos-related diseases. Some of these people did not even work in asbestos-filled factories; they came into contact with asbestos through their loved one's clothing.
