The only known cause of mesothelioma in the American workplace is exposure to asbestos. Mesothelioma occurs when a person breathes in asbestos fibers, and they become lodged in the lining of the lungs. In most cases, a person afflicted with mesothelioma will not notice symptoms until decades after the initial exposure to asbestos.
Asbestos does not discriminate. Wherever the dust goes, disease follows. If you or a loved one suffers from mesothelioma and would like to learn about your legal options, the attorneys at Waddell Anderman are here to help.

Because asbestos was cheap and easy to come by, many industries used it in the construction of buildings and consumer goods. Because of this, many people today suffer from mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases. This includes families and other secondary exposure victims of asbestos-related diseases.
Most asbestos victims were exposed while working at oil refineries, shipyards and other at-risk job locations. Most people who suffer from asbestos-related diseases were exposed for long periods of time, inhaling asbestos dust. However, it is not unheard of for a person who was exposed only once or twice to become afflicted.
In some cases, people have contracted mesothelioma by simply coming into contact with clothing worn by someone who worked around asbestos. Our attorneys know how to find the causes of asbestos exposure and how it leads to mesothelioma. We put our experience to work to help asbestos victims pursue full and fair compensation for the losses they have suffered.
