Mesothelioma Attorney in California

Compared to other personal injury claims, the complexity of mesothelioma cases is unmatched. That’s why many injury firms in California and beyond would rather handle other cases than anything to do with mesothelioma.

It takes a powerful injury firm like Morgan and Morgan to stand up to bullies in the insurance industry and ensure those who have been diagnosed with this aggressive cancer receive the compensation they need and deserve. To give you some perspective of our size and power, we’ve won more than $20 billion collectively and helped over 500,000 clients, some of whom are mesothelioma victims.

With the help of a California mesothelioma lawyer from our team, you, too, might be able to recover damages if diagnosed with —or lost a loved one— to this cancer. Contact us today to learn more.

Morgan & Morgan

  • What Is Mesothelioma?

    Mesothelioma is a rare and aggressive form of cancer that usually occurs due to exposure to asbestos. It affects the lining of the lungs, the abdomen, or, in rare cases, the heart.

  • How Long Does It Take for Asbestos Exposure to Lead to Mesothelioma?

    Mesothelioma typically has a long latency period of about 20 to 50 years. This extended period between exposure and the onset of symptoms is one of the reasons why it is challenging to diagnose the disease early and trace it back to the source of exposure.

  • Is There a Cure for Mesothelioma?

    Currently, there is no known cure for mesothelioma. However, treatment options such as surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy can help manage symptoms and improve the quality of life. Although early detection can lead to more effective treatment, the disease is usually diagnosed in later stages due to its long latency period.

  • Do I Have the Right to File a Claim With My Employer if I Willingly Took the Job?

    Yes, employers have a legal obligation to provide a safe working environment and inform employees of known hazards, including asbestos exposure. If your employer failed to do so, they might be liable for your illness, regardless of your initial agreement to take the job.

  • I Don’t Know Where I Was Exposed to Asbestos. Do I Have a Case?

    Even if you’re unsure where you were exposed to asbestos, you might still have a case. A Morgan and Morgan mesothelioma attorney can utilize our law firm’s powerful resources to investigate and identify potential sources of exposure. This includes tracing your work history, living environments, products you’ve used for decades, and other possible exposure sites to establish a link to your illness.

  • The Exposure Happened Many Years Ago. Can I Still File a Claim?

    Yes, you can. Since mesothelioma cases have prolonged latency periods, State laws in California allow victims to file a claim within one year after diagnosis or the wrongful death of a loved one due to this disease.

  • Let’s Discuss Your Case In Detail

    Each mesothelioma case comes with its own unique circumstances. The best way to find out if you may be entitled to compensation is by having your case reviewed by a mesothelioma expert from our team. To get started, fill out our free, no-obligation case evaluation form.
