Mesothelioma attorneys are legal professionals who have devoted their practice to pursuing justice on behalf of those who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, a rare and always fatal form of cancer that is caused by exposure to asbestos.
Most victims of mesothelioma are former employees of companies that utilized asbestos in one way or another, though others may have been customers of asbestos companies, family members of asbestos company employees, or people who lived or worked near an asbestos mine or a factory that utilized asbestos.
Danziger & De Llano is a law firm that has spent the past twenty years fighting for the rights of mesothelioma victims. If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, contact us to see how we can help.
Mesothelioma is a Fatal Form of Cancer
Mesothelioma is a rare and always fatal form of cancer. It is a particularly challenging disease to treat because it has an extremely long latency period. This means that many years can go by between the time a patient is exposed to mesothelioma and the time that they begin to show symptoms of the disease.
In the case of mesothelioma, the latency period is often as long as fifty or sixty years after initial exposure, and the exposure can be as minimal as a single fiber of the material. Once an asbestos fiber becomes embedded in the cells of the lungs or abdomen, it causes cell death and mutation and leads to the growth of cancerous tumors.
Asbestos Companies Knew of the Dangers of Asbestos
Thousands of people are diagnosed with mesothelioma every year in the United States, and almost 60,000 are diagnosed around the world. The real tragedy of the disease is that the asbestos companies that exposed its employees and customers to the toxic material were aware that it would sicken people, but chose to do nothing.
In the early part of the twentieth century, when asbestos was widely used in a number of settings, the owners and management of asbestos companies began to suspect that the inexpensive material was the cause of their employees' sicknesses. They ordered a study that confirmed this, but kept the information secret in order to continue earning profits.
Mesothelioma Attorneys Hold Asbestos Companies Responsible
As a result of the actions of the asbestos companies and their disregard fo the health and well being of their employees and others who were exposed to asbestos, the American court system has held them responsible for the damage that was done by their negligence and recklessness with the health of those who were exposed.
Mesothelioma lawsuits have become the largest mass tort in American history. They have enabled those who have been impacted by the greed of the asbestos companies to recover the costs of their medical expenses, their damages, and the suffering that they have experienced by imposing large monetary fines and awards.
