Connelly Law is here to help if you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma. The American Cancer Society estimates that there are about 3,000 new cases of mesothelioma diagnosed in the United States every year.
Connelly Law’s asbestos attorneys are here to help if asbestos exposure has caused you to develop a disease such as mesothelioma or lung cancer. Mesothelioma has an extremely high latency period, so it can take anywhere from 20 to 50 years before a diagnosis is made. Many of the people who were exposed to asbestos were unaware of how severe the side effects of asbestos could be.
You may be entitled to compensation if you have mesothelioma and by obtaining the legal services of Connelly Law, we can begin the process of filing a lawsuit against those responsible for you developing the disease.
Workplace exposure to asbestos has brought on a high number of cases. This is also known as occupational exposure. There are some professions that have a higher risk of asbestos exposure for its employees than others. We have helped clients in the following professions:
Some of our clients are people who were not exposed to asbestos in the workplace, but have still developed mesothelioma. Often times, these clients were victims of second-hand exposure. In many cases, someone they lived with brought asbestos home with them on their clothes from their job. The fibers then were released into the air and were inhaled. This is not as common as occupational exposure, but it still can occur.
