Representing Victims Injured by Dangerous Chemical Exposure

Asbestos and all commercial forms of asbestos are human carcinogens. Health conditions such as mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis can develop from exposure to asbestos. Mesothelioma usually develops in the lungs, but it can start in the abdomen or other organs. When asbestos fibers lodge in the lungs, they usually cause a respiratory disease called asbestosis.

If you have been diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma or if a member of your family has passed away from mesothelioma or another malignant cancer related to asbestos exposure, please contact our personal injury attorney. To schedule a free consultation, contact us online or call (713) 222-7211 (toll free 713-222-7211).

Exposure to Asbestos in Texas and the U.S.

Thousands of unsuspecting workers were exposed to asbestos day in and day out as they worked in factories, shipyards, electric power plants and even in buildings where asbestos removal was performed improperly. Family members were also harmed through para-occupational (or secondary) exposure to deadly asbestos fibers brought home from work.

Malignant mesothelioma takes 15 to 30 years to appear after the initial exposure to asbestos. It is a rare cancer of the lining of the lungs or the abdomen, caused by inhaling or swallowing microscopic asbestos fibers.

Bringing Lawsuits for Those Injured by Malignant Mesothelioma and Asbestosis

One challenge in any lawsuit based on an asbestos case is to identify and find the correct defendants years after the victim’s ingestion. Because asbestos is the sole cause of these diseases, there is usually little problem in establishing that the victim’s illness or death was caused by this substance, but to find a past owner of a property or successor to a defunct corporation can present some difficulty for the plaintiff’s attorney.

Our firm has the experience and the resources to identify and locate the parties responsible for unprotected asbestos exposure.
