Mesothelioma is a horrible condition. And it’s one that first arose in our shipyards as the result of the type of products they were putting in their ships. Also it comes from the product that was put in the ceilings of old buildings and the walls of old buildings. It’s a very dangerous condition. It’s one that if you or a loved one have suffered, you need to call us immediately. We want to handle that case as soon as possible. The substance that causes meso, that’s what we refer to it, meso. Is called asbestos and there are varying types of cancer that you can get from it. You can get asbestosis. But mesothelioma, when you hear that word if you’re an attorney, you know that person got it from exposure to asbestos. And you know that they worked in a shipyard. Or you know they worked in an industry where asbestos was in the products. We want to help that person. We’ve handled several cases like that. And in fact I think we have some on our website and we encourage you to read about it. In a lot of cases for meso, they don’t show up for many, many years. And without a doubt, in some cases people have died from it and didn’t even know they had it. So if you go back and you think your loved one died from asbestos or asbestos poisoning, get the medical records. Get them to us and we’ll have them reviewed. Please give us a call or send us an email. We’re here. We’re ready to help. Justice Counts.
