Experienced Attorneys Ready to Defend Victims of Mesothelioma
Mesothelioma is a type of cancer that primarily develops after exposure to asbestos, which is a toxic material. For many years, asbestos was used in insulation and other types of building materials. Anyone who regularly worked around these materials or lived in buildings with asbestos may have been exposed thereby developing mesothelioma.
The company or companies that exposed you to asbestos should be held accountable for the damage they’ve done to you and your family, especially considering that treatment for mesothelioma is expensive. Other ways asbestos exposure can be expensive include:
- Loss of earning capacity
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional damages
By working with the skilled attorneys at Calcagno & Associates, you may be able to collect full compensation, which will allow you to focus on getting the best possible treatment. If you or a family member has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, please contact Calcagno & Associates to discuss your legal options.
How Did I Get Mesothelioma?
The only known cause of mesothelioma is exposure to asbestos. Asbestos is not banned, but its use in the U.S. is limited to certain types of products.
- Asbestos was very inexpensive and was used as a filler in many different products in the U.S.
- It takes about 10 to 60 years from the time of asbestos exposure until symptoms appear or mesothelioma is diagnosed.
- Companies hid the results of studies conducted on the results of asbestos exposure in favor of making profits, rather than pursuing safety.
- These companies not only hid studies, but they provided no warnings about the dangers to the public. As a result, thousands of Americans have been killed as a result of asbestos exposure.
