Mesothelioma Attorney in Melbourne
In the summer of 1989, just one year after Morgan and Morgan was founded, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced a nationwide ban on many different products believed to contain asbestos. If you didn't know, asbestos is a natural mineral that causes mesothelioma when consumed over a long period of time.
However, despite the ban, many companies and even individuals have continued to expose innocent people in Melbourne to this harmful material, leading to mesothelioma diagnoses. Upon realizing that our lawyers were coming for them, some companies opted to file for bankruptcy.
That wasn't enough to absolve them of their responsibility of compensating those who had been exposed to asbestos and developed mesothelioma. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, contact us immediately for a free case review.

Where Is Asbestos Found?
Asbestos is commonly found in older buildings and products due to its heat-resistant properties. It's often in insulation, roofing shingles, floor and ceiling tiles, cement products, and some car parts like brakes and clutches. Some tests have also traced this mineral back to older pipes and boilers and certain textiles used for fireproofing.
What's the Difference Between Asbestos and Mesothelioma?
Asbestos is a group of naturally occurring fibrous minerals used in building materials and other products. Mesothelioma, on the other hand, is a rare and aggressive form of cancer primarily caused by exposure to asbestos. Inhaling or swallowing asbestos fibers can lead to mesothelioma, affecting the lungs, abdomen, or heart lining.
Who Can File a Mesothelioma Claim?
Anyone who has been diagnosed with mesothelioma due to asbestos exposure can file a claim. Additionally, family members or estate representatives can file a claim or a lawsuit on behalf of someone who has passed away from this condition.
What Is the Criteria for a Mesothelioma Lawsuit?
In order to file a mesothelioma lawsuit, your case must meet the following conditions:
- Confirmed mesothelioma diagnosis
- Evidence of asbestos exposure caused by someone else's negligence
- Connection between the exposure and the diagnosis.
An asbestos attorney from Morgan and Morgan can help establish whether your case meets this criteria.
How Long Do Mesothelioma Lawsuits Take to Resolve?
It depends on the specifics of your case. Some settle in a few months, while others might take years, especially if they go to trial. Your attorney can give you a more specific timeline after reviewing the facts of your case.
How Much Will a Mesothelioma Lawyer Charge to Represent You?
If you hire a Melbourne mesothelioma attorney from our team, you won't pay anything upfront. That's because we work on a contingency basis. What this means is that the fee is free unless we win.
And even after winning the case, we'll only deduct a small portion of the settlement or verdict, usually between 30 to 40 percent.
