Mesothelioma Attorney in Fresno
There’s a reason mesothelioma is a rare type of cancer — it doesn’t infect your body with one or two attempts. Rather, by the time you’re diagnosed with mesothelioma, it means you were exposed to asbestos for a long period of time, usually decades.
The truth is, most mesothelioma cases usually occur because someone somewhere did not want to do the right thing. They probably knew about the risk of mesothelioma but chose to put profits over human lives.
As you fight this cancer through numerous treatment sessions, you can count on our Fresno mesothelioma lawyer to investigate your case and determine how the exposure happened in the first place. That way, we’ll be able to tell if someone dropped the ball on your safety and, hopefully, help you obtain the compensation you need and deserve.

What Are Some Common Places Asbestos Is Found In?
Asbestos is commonly found in older buildings, including homes, schools, and commercial properties, particularly those built before the 1980s. It was used in insulation, roofing shingles, floor tiles, ceiling materials, and pipe insulation.
This mineral also be found in certain industrial environments, like shipyards and manufacturing plants, and in automotive products like brake pads and clutches.
What Are the Legal Grounds for Suing an Employer for Asbestos Exposure?
The legal grounds for suing an employer for asbestos exposure include but are not limited to:
- failure to provide a safe work environment;
- failure to warn employees about the dangers of asbestos; and
- not providing adequate protective equipment or training.
In general, if an employer knew or should have known about the asbestos risk and did not take appropriate action to protect employees, they could be sued for negligence.
Can I Sue an Employer if I Signed a Waiver?
While waivers are designed to protect employers from lawsuits, they are not always legally binding, especially if they violate public policy or employee rights. It's essential to consult with a mesothelioma expert from our team to understand the validity of the waiver in your specific case and explore your legal options.
Can US Army Veterans Sue the Department of Veterans Affairs for Asbestos Exposure?
US Army veterans typically cannot sue the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for asbestos exposure but can seek compensation through VA benefits for illnesses related to service-connected asbestos exposure. Additionally, they may pursue legal action against the manufacturers of asbestos-containing products used in the military.
The good news is that Morgan and Morgan has an army of lawyers for military veterans who can handle such cases. Some of our attorneys have served in the US military and understand the unique challenges our veterans face, including living with mesothelioma acquired during their time in the military. You can count on us to fight for you or a loved one who served in the US military and was diagnosed with mesothelioma thereafter.
