Who is Eligible to Receive Financial Compensation?
Mesothelioma is a tragic disease that develops over decades but can devastate in mere months; virtually all cases are linked to wrongful asbestos exposure. If you or a loved one has been exposed to asbestos and diagnosed with mesothelioma or other respiratory diseases and cancers, you may be eligible to receive significant financial compensation.
Asbestos was widely used in construction, shipbuilding, and manufacturing industries throughout the 20th century, long after companies were aware of the risks. An estimated 10,000 Americans die every year due to asbestos-related illnesses.
If you’ve been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you have several ways to pursue financial compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and suffering. You may have been exposed on the job (either at your worksite or through your materials), in the military, or in your environment. At risk groups include Navy veterans, shipbuilders, construction workers, miners, and many more.

Losing a loved one is unspeakably difficult—even more so if you know that his or her passing caused by avoidable and negligent asbestos exposure. If your spouse, parent, or family member has passed away due to mesothelioma or another asbestos-related illness, you may be eligible to claim compensation for your relatives’ pain, suffering, and medical expenses.

Many people develop mesothelioma without ever coming into direct contact with asbestos products. While direct asbestos exposure overwhelmingly affected men working in unsafe occupations and environments, women, children, and family members were commonly victims of secondary exposure. Asbestos is easily brought into the home on the clothing, hair, and skin of workers, where it can cause fatal diseases to anyone who comes in contact with the fibers. If you’ve been injured due to secondary exposure, you may be eligible for compensation. Contact us for help.
