Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that is caused by asbestos exposure. Asbestos is a naturally occurring toxic mineral that was widely used for decades in many diverse industries, including but not limited to shipbuilding, automobile manufacturing, construction, and mining. Mesothelioma most commonly develops when asbestos, a known carcinogen, enters the body through inhalation of its fine particles. However, family members also can suffer exposure when the particles are transferred through contact with an exposed party before changing closes or showering. Asbestos constitutes a primary cause of serious lung disorders like mesothelioma, asbestosis, and pleural disorders.
We Bring the Experience You Need
"First and foremost, thank you for your professional service, insights, ideas, expectations, and honesty! Most importantly, thank you for being good people and assisting me in during this difficult situation."
Have you been injured or lost a loved one to mesothelioma?
Although medical evidence began to emerge in the early 1920s that established a correlation between exposure to asbestos fibers and mesothelioma, many employers and manufacturers ignored these reports and continued to use and manufacturer asbestos. Unsuspecting employees and others were unaware of the risk because the latency period between exposure and the manifestation of symptoms is typically between 25 and 50 years. This long period of dormancy creates challenges in proving liability which make it imperative that victims work with an experienced New Mexico mesothelioma attorney.
Our law firm pursues both personal injury and wrongful death claims against a mesothelioma victim's former employer and/or the company that manufactured and sold the asbestos product. We handle both primary and secondary asbestos exposure cases. Primary asbestos exposure claims involve direct contact with the toxic fibers, such as by an employee working in a shipyard or a construction worker renovating a building with asbestos. Secondary asbestos exposure involves family members or others who come in contact with asbestos on the person or clothing of a person directly exposed to the carcinogen.
