Mesothelioma Attorney in Sacramento
Mesothelioma is a rare but aggressive type of cancer. That explains why individuals diagnosed with mesothelioma usually need treatment immediately after the diagnosis.
The treatment itself is usually financially draining, not to forget the lifestyle changes that come right after. Whichever way you look at it, money is usually involved and in huge amounts. The problem is, not everyone can afford mesothelioma treatment.
Even those who do should not have to pay for treatment out of pocket, especially if they were exposed to asbestos due to someone else’s negligence. That’s where a Sacramento mesothelioma lawyer from Morgan and Morgan, America’s largest and most injury firm, comes in.
Our mission is simple: if you or a loved one developed mesothelioma due to someone else’s negligence or carelessness, we can hold them accountable and ensure you obtain the care you need and the financial compensation you deserve. Contact us today for a free, no-obligation case evaluation.

What Are the Different Types of Mesothelioma?
The different types of mesothelioma are categorized based on where in the body the cancer develops. Pleural mesothelioma affects the lining of the lungs and is the most common type. Peritoneal mesothelioma, on the other hand, occurs in the lining of the abdomen. Other rare types include pericardial mesothelioma, which affects the lining around the heart, and testicular mesothelioma.
What Are My Legal Options if Diagnosed With Mesothelioma?
If diagnosed with mesothelioma, you can file a personal injury lawsuit against the parties responsible for your asbestos exposure. This can be former employers, manufacturers of asbestos-containing products, or property owners (such as your landlord).
What If the At-Fault Party Filed for Bankruptcy?
Companies that expose their workers or clients to asbestos cannot escape liability by simply filing for bankruptcy. If the responsible parties have declared bankruptcy, you can file a claim with asbestos trust funds (if available).
In some cases, workers' compensation or veterans' benefits might also be options to recover some form of compensation, but they’ll likely not cover the full extent of your losses.
What Are Asbestos Funds?
These are funds set aside by companies found responsible for exposing their employees or clients to asbestos. The goal of setting up asbestos funds is to compensate future mesothelioma claimants. It’s also a way of ensuring that those responsible for asbestos exposure don’t parachute themselves away from their legal duty to compensate those affected.
How Soon Should I Take Legal Action?
Immediately. That’s because mesothelioma cases tend to drag for long and despite that, they have strict deadlines you must adhere to. In Sacramento, for example, you only have about a year from the date of diagnosis to take legal action. Failure to do so could result in losing your right to recover compensation even if you have a valid case.
