Manufacturers have known of the connection between asbestos and the rare cancer, mesothelioma, for decades but has put profit before the welfare of human beings.

Any person who has developed mesothelioma through exposure to asbestos can file a lawsuit. Family members or friends can also file a lawsuit if they got this cancer from an already afflicted person or through contact by living with a person working with asbestos. If an individual with asbestos mesothelioma dies, then a family member may pursue litigation.

The criteria for an eligible mesothelioma claim includes:

  • Statement from a doctor or medical records with date of initial diagnosis
  • 10 years of exposure before diagnosis
  • Proof of exposure through testimony or records
