No one should ever have to face a diagnosis of mesothelioma. The problem of asbestos exposure is the result of companies knowingly and willingly continuing to produce and use a substance they knew put people in grave danger. The deadly effects were starting to surface in the late 1800’s and by the 1930’s were well known and documented. If you have mesothelioma or another asbestos-related illness, our Ohio mesothelioma attorneys can help.
Mesothelioma still kills the majority of its victims within a year of diagnosis. Those few short months are filled with pain and the need for extensive medical and personal care. Mesothelioma is expensive financially, and can be emotionally and physically devastating for loves ones as well as those who have the disease. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you may be entitled to compensation including:
Many people are under the impression that asbestos has been banned in the U.S. It has not. It is still in use today. Although the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued regulations, in 1989, to ban and phase out asbestos use, U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeal overturned the ban two years later. The effort to ban asbestos in the U.S. continues and the substance has already been banned in over 50 other countries.
As long as asbestos use remains profitable, companies will continue to fight a ban. When mesothelioma victims and their loved ones hold these companies responsible it lowers the profitability and raises public awareness of the danger of asbestos exposure. Our Ohio mesothelioma attorneys are here to help you get the compensation that you deserve.
If you or a loved one has mesothelioma or any asbestos-related illness, please call or submit an online questionnaire. The initial consultation is free of charge, and if our Ohio mesothelioma attorneys agree to handle your mesothelioma claim, they will work on a contingent fee basis, which means they only get paid for their services if there is a monetary recovery of funds. In many cases, a lawsuit must be filed before the expiration of the statute of limitations. Please call our Ohio mesothelioma attorneys right away to ensure that you do not waive your right to possible compensation.
