A very rare type of cancer, mesothelioma has been shown to be directly caused by asbestos exposure. It occurs in individuals who have been exposed to asbestos, which is the only known cause of mesothelioma. Our firm helps victims take action against those responsible for the asbestos exposure that caused their mesothelioma. We can also explain exactly what mesothelioma is and how asbestos may cause this type of cancer.

Silica (sand) exposure
Prolonged silica exposure can lead to serious diseases. Silicosis, lung cancer, kidney cancer, other types of cancer and respiratory disorders can be associated with silica exposure (often from sandblasting activities) and can result in death or prevent you from living your life the way you would like. Our firm utilizes the resources necessary to provide thorough representation for people who have suffered injuries and family members who have lost loved ones due to exposure to these toxic substances.
Toxic chemical exposure
Many types of cancers, respiratory disorders and other medical conditions can be caused or aggravated by chemical exposure. If you were exposed to toxic chemicals that caused you injuries, we can help you understand your rights and the options you have in seeking compensation for your losses.
Family and bystander exposure
Exposure to asbestos can result in serious diseases in family members such as spouses or children. People exposed to asbestos at work or some other location can carry dangerous asbestos fibers into their homes on their clothing, bodies or other objects, thereby exposing their family, children and other people to toxic asbestos. This asbestos exposure can result in severe and/or deadly asbestos-related diseases, including: mesothelioma; lung cancer; cancer of the gastrointestinal tract; asbestosis; and severe respiratory disorders. Diseases associated with asbestos exposure can result in death or severe disability. We have successfully handled many family, domestic and bystander asbestos exposure cases.
