Mesothelioma is a disease that affects nearly 3,000 people a year in the United States. It is a form of cancer that targets people who have worked in factories, shipyards, and mines. It also strikes engineers, pipefitters, steel workers, auto mechanics, and even military professionals. It affects many other people, too, and it's a condition that is entirely preventable.
What makes these people prone to developing mesothelioma is that the places these people work often contain the mineral asbestos, which was banned 40 years ago. The condition develops when people inhale particles of the asbestos dust. Sometimes, the dust was carried home on the clothes of these workers and spread to others.
The sad truth is that the effects of asbestos on the human body were well known by the companies that manufacture and supply the material. However, these companies did nothing to protect its employees, and some even hid the truth. And because the condition can take 50 years to fully form, many companies got away with this for years.

Frequently the last thing that mesothelioma patients and their families want to deal with is the process of making a claim for damages or filing a lawsuit against the party or parties responsible for their injuries. Understandably, given the seriousness of a mesothelioma diagnosis, contemplating a lawsuit can seem quite overwhelming. We understand these concerns. At the core of our existence lies our desire to do everything we can to support and comfort patients and their families in their time of need.
First and foremost our goal is provide straightforward answers to any and all questions posed by our visitors, both medical and legal, and to recommend the very best experts in the country to assist the patient and their family when they have reached the point where either medical or legal assistance is appropriate. Our Patient Advocates have spent years assisting mesothelioma patients and their families and are able to save them both the time and effort necessary to make informed decisions about how to proceed with treatment and claims.
The years of experience gained by our Patient Advocates in dealing intimately with this subject will enable them to explain exactly how the legal process applies to you and your family. For example, the filing of a lawsuit, while a possibility, is not automatic for those wishing to recover for their asbestos related injuries. For many injured parties there are trust funds available to compensate parties who have been injured by the negligence of certain companies that have set up these funds either in bankruptcy or otherwise. If you qualify for one or more of these funds, the claims process is set up to be non-adversarial in nature, generally requiring the processing of your claim by an experienced attorney using your medical and work history.
In addition to entitlement to money from the more than 30 billion dollars in trust funds, injured parties have the opportunity to recover directly from companies that caused their injuries. While lawsuits are often needed to get the process moving some of the more experienced and powerful law firms have built up relationships with the larger defendants over the years that enable them to settle such claims quickly without the necessity of prolonged litigation. One of the biggest keys to settlement is the reputation and the experience of the law firm representing the injured party and his or her family. There is simply no substitute for hiring a firm that has proven to the defendants and their insurance companies that they can make them pay in court. Our Patient Advocates can put you in contact with some of the most successful law firms in the country.
