A history of asbestos exposure at work is reported in about 70 percent to 80 percent of all cases of mesothelioma. In other cases, the exposures occur in the home. If you suffer from mesothelioma symptoms or have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you have legal rights that can help protect your future and family.

Asbestos companies were aware of the health risks of their products as far back as the 1920s. They could have introduced asbestos substitutes or, at the very least, warned workers about the dangers of asbestos so that protective measures could be taken. But asbestos companies chose profit over public welfare, leading millions of Americans to be exposed to asbestos. The mesothelioma epidemic was entirely preventable.

Through the filing of asbestos lawsuits, asbestos companies can be held responsible for their negligence. While monetary compensation cannot undo the loss of life and suffering caused by asbestos disease, it can bring some measure of justice and help pay for medical bills, lost income, and support of loved ones.

If you were diagnosed with mesothelioma or lost a loved one to asbestos disease, you may be eligible for an asbestos lawsuit. Contact Belluck & Fox, LLP, for a free case review to learn your legal rights.
