Mesothelioma: Our White Paper Guide For Patients & Their Families

Occupational exposure to asbestos from the 1940s into the 1980s is the only known cause of mesothelioma. After a diagnosis, questions of where and when exposure occurred can be difficult to answer. This is complicated by the fact that it often takes between 10 to 50 years for the disease to develop.

A work history using Social Security records, Navy veteran resources about products used on ships or interviews with co-workers could effectively put the pieces together to complete the puzzle of the where and when. How much exposure could have been enough to cause the disease? Short-term (an internship in a metal plating factory during college) or secondhand (washing asbestos laden uniforms) may even be enough.

What are your legal rights?

The law holds manufacturers responsible when they produce unreasonably dangerous products. Concerns about asbestos exposure were known as early as the 20s and 30s.

To explain the potential legal remedies, we wrote a white paper: "Putting Together the Pieces: A Guide for Mesothelioma Patients and Their Families." In this guide, you will learn:

  • Why asbestos was so widely used
  • Which professions are associated with a higher risk of developing the disease
  • What monetary damages might be available
  • How to decide on an attorney or law firm

When you or a loved one receives a mesothelioma diagnosis, focus must shift to medical care. At the same time, you need to take action or legal remedies could be lost. By reading our white paper, you can learn about your rights and when to seek legal guidance.
