Mesothelioma & Asbestos
It is one of the great injustices ever forced upon America’s working-class: asbestos exposure.
For decades, despite growing evidence that asbestos is deadly, its use continued across a broad spectrum of trades and industries. Workers and their families were left to pay the devastating price for being exposed to this toxic mineral.
Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer primarily—almost exclusively—caused by exposure to asbestos. It is an aggressive form of cancer that affects the lungs and abdomen. Mesothelioma can often be difficult to diagnose in patients as there are many symptoms that resemble other respiratory conditions, such as chronic coughing and chest pain.
If you have worked in an industry or in a position where you were exposed to asbestos, it is best to meet with a doctor and explain your symptoms as well as your work history.
SELECTING A MESOTHELIOMA LAWYER
Selecting a lawyer to represent you in a mesothelioma case is a very important decision and one that should not be taken lightly. In this area of the law for cases like this, you require a specialized firm with a history of representing clients exposed to asbestos.

WHAT IS ASBESTOS?
Asbestos is a naturally-occurring mineral, widely used in everything from fire-proof vests to home and commercial construction. If asbestos fibers become airborne, they can be inhaled, become lodged in the lungs and tissue, and cause complications over time—including deadly cancers.
Today, it is known that asbestos can cause serious conditions including:
- Lung cancer
- Pleural mesothelioma
- Peritoneal mesothelioma
- Pericardial mesothelioma
According to OSHA, there more than 75 different jobs that exposed workers to asbestos, namely:
- Construction trades
Military workers were also widely exposed to asbestos, and since the fibers cling to clothing and equipment, many of these workers carried it home with them where they exposed their families to its potentially deadly effects.
Corporations, employers and unions won’t admit responsibility for your asbestos exposure, and that’s why you need a powerful law firm to stand up for you. Fieger Law is that firm!
