We Thoroughly Investigate Mesothelioma Claims
A person develops mesothelioma from inhaling or swallowing tiny asbestos fibers. The fibers stick in the mesothelium, which is a thin layer of tissue that lines the lungs and other organs and cavities. Tumors may form, which leads to mesothelioma symptoms such as shortness of breath, chronic coughing, chest pains and fluid buildup in the lungs.
Several years may pass between a person’s asbestos exposure and the development of mesothelioma symptoms. This delay creates challenges when individuals or their survivors pursue a mesothelioma lawsuit. For instance, to identify the source of the asbestos exposure, a person must examine where they worked and lived, which could involve going back over many decades. A person must also determine whether he or she was exposed to asbestos-containing products such as:
- Fireproofing materials
- Insulation materials
- Tiles, siding and roofing
- Turbines, boilers, pumps and valves
- Gaskets and packings
- Automotive brakes and clutches
- Caulk, putty and spackling materials
- Lab equipment.
Most people find that they were exposed to asbestos on the job or during military service. Many people who suffer from mesothelioma served in the U.S. Navy or once worked as:
- Shipyard workers
- Power plant workers
- Refinery workers
- Construction workers
- Railroad workers
Unfortunately, workers may have brought fibers home with them on their skin and clothes, exposing family members to asbestos. If you suffer from mesothelioma, you may need to retrace your family members’ history as well.
The Driscoll Firm can offer the skill, experience and resources that it takes to handle complex mesothelioma investigations. When we take on your case, we will:
- Gather and analyze your medical records, military records and work records and/or the records of your family members
- Obtain and examine the records of the company or companies responsible for your asbestos exposure
- Collect affidavits and take depositions
- Consult with highly knowledgeable medical experts and experts from other fields.
It takes time to investigate and prepare a mesothelioma claim. So, when you are ready to act, get in touch with The Driscoll Firm as early as possible.
How The Driscoll Firm Can Help You
The Driscoll Firm has extensive experience with litigating product liability claims in state and federal courts across the country. After conducting a thorough investigation, we can file a claim on your behalf for personal injury or wrongful death compensation. We would file the claim against the company (or companies) which manufactured and/or distributed the asbestos-containing product(s) that harmed you or your loved one.
If many years have passed since your asbestos exposure, the company responsible for the exposure may no longer be in business. However, federal law required many companies to establish asbestos trust funds in order to pay claims filed by individuals and families harmed by their products. If you are eligible to file a trust fund claim, The Driscoll Firm can guide your case through the claims process.
