Recovering for Injuries due to Asbestos or Mesothelioma
Exposure to asbestos in the workplace is the leading cause of Mesothelioma, a devastating form of cancer. That said, millions of Americans who never worked in a shipyard, mine, or mill, were nevertheless exposed to free floating, airborne asbestos from the 1930s through the 1970s, until it was finally banned in 1989. Since Mesothelioma may show up 10 to 40 years after exposure to asbestos, new cases are still being diagnosed every day. This cancer is responsible for approximately 10,000 deaths a year in the United States alone.
If you have been diagnosed with Mesothelioma, there is a significant chance that you will be able to quickly recover substantial damages from the company that manufactured or installed the asbestos, or from an asbestos victim’s trust fund, often without the need for a jury trial. The court rules in Washington State recognize that Mesothelioma victims have a short life expectancy and, as a result, fast track their lawsuits.
