Morgan & Morgan
What is Mesothelioma
Mesothelioma is a rare and aggressive form of cancer caused by exposure to asbestos that may not develop until decades after an individual is exposed. Asbestos was used across several industries for most of the 20th century for its insulating and heat-resistant properties. Asbestos is a naturally occurring fiber that, when disturbed, can become airborne and is easily inhaled or ingested. This can later develop into illnesses such as mesothelioma, asbestosis, and lung cancer.
The attorneys at Morgan & Morgan understand how devastating a mesothelioma diagnosis is for you and your family. Our New York City mesothelioma attorneys have extensive experience in this practice area and are committed to fighting for the benefits you deserve.
Types of Abestos Exposure Compensation
If you have developed mesothelioma after being exposed to asbestos, there are three primary compensation avenues, including asbestos trusts, litigation, and veterans’ benefits.
Asbestos Trust Funds
Many companies that used asbestos later faced a large volume of injury claims stemming from asbestos exposure. As a result of these claims, many companies had to declare bankruptcy. During bankruptcy proceedings, asbestos trust funds were created to ensure adequate funds were set aside to compensate future claimants.
If the company responsible for your asbestos exposure remains solvent, a lawsuit for personal injury or wrongful death may be filed against it. Outcomes of a lawsuit include settlement and jury trial verdict. New York law requires that claims for asbestos-related injuries are brought within two years of the date on which you receive your diagnosis.
Veterans who were exposed to asbestos during their military service and have been diagnosed with an asbestos-related disease may file a claim with the Department of Veterans Affairs.
The field of asbestos litigation is ever-shifting, as companies have taken dramatic steps to protect their assets and avoid liability for asbestos exposure injuries. The experienced attorneys at Morgan & Morgan are well-versed in each of these types of claims and can fight for your full and fair compensation.
How do I Know if I was Exposed?
The New York City area is home to dozens of work sites where asbestos exposure is known to have occurred. Common types of materials that have contained asbestos include ceiling tiles, automotive brakes and linings, floor tiles, insulation, roofing shingles, spray coatings, and talcum powder.
