If you or a family member have been diagnosed with this type of asbestos cancer, don't hesitate to call or contact our firm for a free consultation today.
The Impact Of Pleural Mesothelioma
Mesothelioma affects the protective sac that surrounds the lungs. This sac is called the pleura and contained within the pleura, is the mesothelium membrane. Asbestos fibers that are inhaled may become lodged in this sac or membrane and begin to cause inflammation of the protective covering. Nearly five decades later, the resulting inflammation may eventually lead to the development of the malignant cancer known as pleural mesothelioma.
Our firm has handled thousands of asbestos and mesothelioma cases. As a result, we have accumulated a wealth of knowledge and information on how to pursue these lawsuits most effectively, on the various asbestos products people were exposed to, on the manufacturers that made them, and on the employers who often knew they were putting their employees at risk.
We also want to assure you that we not only have the financial resources needed to take your claim wherever it needs to go to reach a satisfactory conclusion — we have access to experts and professional resources nationwide who will help us do just that.
