Mesothelioma Attorney in North Carolina
Seeking compensation for mesothelioma without legal counsel shouldn’t be an option. That’s because mesothelioma cases are particularly complex. No defendant will admit fault without a fight. The employer you worked for religiously for decades will try to avoid liability by disputing your claim. The landlord who rented you the asbestos-infested property will not write you a check simply because you finally found out the truth about their negligence or failure to warn.
On top of that, think about your priority right now. You shouldn’t be taking on any defendant head-on. Rather, given the aggressive nature of this cancer, you should be focusing on getting the treatment you need and deserve.
That’s where a North Carolina mesothelioma lawyer from Morgan and Morgan comes in. Our attorneys have recovered more than $20 billion for over 500,000 families nationwide. Some of the clients we’ve helped are those directly impacted by mesothelioma. If you have a valid case, we might be able to fight for you, too.

What Causes Mesothelioma?
Mesothelioma is primarily caused by exposure to asbestos, a naturally occurring mineral. When asbestos fibers are inhaled or ingested for a long period of time, usually decades, they can lead to mesothelioma. Because this disease often develops decades after exposure, it’s usually challenging to pinpoint the exact source without thorough investigation.
What Types of Claims Can I File?
You can file several types of claims depending on the uniqueness of your case. These include:
- personal injury claims, if you're diagnosed with the disease;
- wrongful death claims, filed by family members if a loved one dies due to mesothelioma; and
- asbestos trust fund claims, applicable if the responsible company is bankrupt.
An experienced mesothelioma and asbestos exposure lawyer can advise on the most suitable option.
Do I Have to Be Employed to File a Mesothelioma Claim?
No, you don't. While many cases are related to occupational exposure, you can also be exposed to asbestos in non-work environments. For example, living near asbestos mines or using products containing asbestos can lead to exposure. The key is to establish the source of exposure, regardless of employment status.
What If I Was Exposed to Asbestos While Serving in the US Military?
In that case, you might still be eligible to file a mesothelioma claim. The US Department of Veterans Affairs offers benefits for veterans with asbestos-related diseases. Additionally, you can pursue claims against the manufacturers of asbestos-containing products used by the military, not the military itself.
What If My Loved One Died Due to Mesothelioma?
If your loved one died due to mesothelioma, our wrongful death lawyers might be able to fight for you. If they win, you may recover costs for medical bills, funeral expenses, loss of income, and loss of companionship, among other damages specific to your case.
