Mesothelioma Attorney in Marietta
It’s one thing to be diagnosed with mesothelioma and a totally different thing to discover that you were exposed to asbestos because of someone else’s negligence or greed. There are companies and industries out there that have continually exposed their workers and consumers to asbestos for decades without caring about the long-term effects of this exposure on their lives.
These companies put profits over human lives. Now is the time to hold them accountable. If you believe that you were exposed to asbestos, which led to your mesothelioma diagnosis, you may be entitled to compensation.
Please contact us for a no-cost case evaluation. A Marietta mesothelioma lawyer from our team might be able to represent you.

Morgan & Morgan
What Common Products May Contain Asbestos?
Up until the summer of 1989, asbestos was commonly used in various products due to its heat resistance and insulating properties. These include building materials like insulation, roofing shingles, and floor tiles, automotive parts like brake pads and gaskets, and older household items like pipe coverings and heat-resistant fabrics.
What Jobs Have a Higher Risk of Asbestos Exposure?
Certain jobs have a higher risk of asbestos exposure than others. Construction work, especially in older buildings, shipbuilding, automotive repair (particularly with older vehicles), manufacturing of asbestos products, and firefighting, are good examples. Workers in these industries are at a higher risk due to the nature of their work and the environments they operate in.
Who Is Usually at Fault for Asbestos Exposure?
Liability for asbestos exposure can fall on many different parties.
Let’s start with employers. They could be liable if they failed to provide adequate safety measures to prevent their workers from exposure. The same applies to manufacturers of asbestos-containing products, or property owners who failed to safely manage or disclose the presence of asbestos in their products or premises.
Does One-Time Exposure Lead to Mesothelioma?
This cancer mostly occurs due to prolonged asbestos exposure. While you can’t rule out the risks of short-term exposure, they’re usually significantly lower than when you’ve been exposed to this material for decades.
How Long Till Mesothelioma Symptoms Begin To Show?
It could take anywhere between 20 to 50 years for these symptoms to develop after asbestos exposure. This long latency period is one of the reasons why mesothelioma is often diagnosed in later stages, making such cases particularly difficult to solve.
Can I Sue a Company That Filed for Bankruptcy?
Yes, you can still pursue a mesothelioma claim even if the responsible company has filed for bankruptcy. That’s because many such companies must establish asbestos trust funds to compensate current and future victims of asbestos-related diseases. That’s where your compensation would derive from if you have a valid case and the company already filed for bankruptcy.
Can I File a Claim if I Was Exposed to Mesothelioma During Military Service?
Military veterans exposed to asbestos during service can file claims for compensation. While you may not be able to sue the military, you may have options. For instance, you may be eligible for benefits through the Department of Veterans Affairs. The other option is to file lawsuits against manufacturers of asbestos-containing products used by the military.
