Mesothelioma Legal Rights
If you or someone you know has a mesothelioma or another asbestos-related disease, you owe it to yourself to make sure that your rights are protected. Your rights vary depending on many factors such as:
- where you live,
- where you were exposed to asbestos,
- and the location of the responsible asbestos companies.
Each state has its own laws and that affects how mesothelioma litigation is handled. Each state also has its own deadlines for allowing victims of mesothelioma and other asbestos diseases to file lawsuits. Known as statutes of limitation and statutes of repose, these generally start the day of diagnosis and often last just two years.

Experienced Mesothelioma Legal Help
We have represented thousands of mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis victims in Maine, New York, Maryland, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Kentucky, Ohio, Florida, Michigan, Indiana and Iowa. We have represented individuals from many different trade unions including asbestos workers, carpenters, electrical workers, bricklayers, boilermakers, laborers, plumbers and pipefitters, steamfitters, sheetmetal workers, steelworkers and others. Clients in these trades were exposed during the construction and repair of powerhouses, chemical plants, and other buildings.
Because we are headquartered in a city known for its steel making, we were one of the first firms in the country to successfully file cases for steelworkers who were exposed to asbestos during the steel making process. We have compiled invoices, deposition transcripts, and other information that help us prove which asbestos products were used at steel mills and other commercial and industrial job sites in various states.
Since we have been involved in asbestos litigation from the beginning, we have a clear understanding of what is required to succeed, especially in mesothelioma cases. In addition to our trial experience, we have a large arsenal of corporate documents, depositions and medical articles dating back to the 1930's with which to vigorously prosecute your asbestos case. We work with world renowned doctors who are experts in diagnosing and treating mesothelioma, asbestosis and lung cancer caused by asbestos. The combination of our evidence, experience and expertise results in the aggressive representation of our clients.
