Struggling to come to terms with your diagnosis?
Being diagnosed with an aggressive cancer like mesothelioma is life-changing, but we can help you navigate the system and get the straight answers you need during this challenging time.

What Is Mesothelioma?

Malignant mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that is caused by asbestos exposure.

There are two main forms of the disease:

  • Pleural mesothelioma
  • Peritoneal mesothelioma

Pleural mesothelioma affects the lining in the lungs (pleura), whereas peritoneal mesothelioma affects the lining in the abdomen, often spreading to other organs.

Is mesothelioma cancer curable?

Malignant mesothelioma is not a curable cancer.

It’s a highly aggressive form of cancer that’s usually diagnosed during the later stages of the disease.

The prognosis for mesothelioma patients in the US is slowly improving, but only nine percent of people diagnosed with this cancer live longer than five years.

Types of Mesothelioma

Testicular mesothelioma is extremely rare and makes up less than 5% of diagnoses.

A diagnosis of mesothelioma can come out of the blue for patients and families.

Fighting for your rights is smart — fair compensation is what you deserve.

Seeking Mesothelioma Compensation?

Mesothelioma cancer treatment is expensive.

Legal compensation can help you deal with the financial burden.

We take care of all the legal aspects of your caseso you can focus on healing and spending time with the people you love.

Our skilled legal team has conducted extensive investigations into the companies who are responsible for asbestos exposure, and we are nationally recognized for securing fair compensation for mesothelioma patients.

Answers to your legal questions:

You may be entitled to both economic and non-economic compensation that covers medical bills, pain, suffering, and loss of earnings.

You can also pursue compensation after the death of a family member due to asbestos disease.

It won’t bring them back, but it will help you deal with end-of-life costs.

Here is what you could be entitled to:

  • Medical expenses, including any treatments that your doctor may recommend in the future
  • Cost of travel related to your mesothelioma treatment
  • Loss of earning due to your disease, both now and into the future
  • Costs of hiring someone to care for your spouse and complete household chores (tasks you usually do, but no longer can)
  • The physical, emotional, and psychological suffering you have experienced

You may feel reluctant to pursue an asbestos claim at first — but the money can help improve quality of life.

We’ll start with a free, no-obligation consultation, where we will take you through your options.

It’s a chance for you to get some advice and guidance from people who have been involved in mesothelioma claims for a long time.

Next, we would assess your finances and your case to identify who should be held responsible, and how much compensation you deserve. 

All the while, we’ll ensure that you are pursuing a proper treatment plan.

We operate on a no-win, no-fee basis (also known as a contingency-fee basis) for all our mesothelioma cases, so there is very little risk for you.

We are nationally recognized for the work we do.

Don’t you want a respected team on your side to ensure that you have the right information to fight this disease?

What to look for in a mesothelioma law firm:

If you do decide to go down the legal route, consider carefully who you put your trust into.

You need a law firm with a proven track record in winning mesothelioma and asbestos lawsuits, not just referring them out to other lawyers.  

You also need mesothelioma attorneys who are aware of the complications involved in seeking legal compensation.
