Trusted Louisiana Mesothelioma Law Firm Helps Victims Seek Compensation
Skilled attorneys represent clients in the Gretna area sickened by asbestos exposure
Mesothelioma is a rare but deadly form of cancer caused by asbestos exposure. Its victims most often inhaled asbestos fibers in the workplace without knowing the dangers. That means manufacturers and other companies that negligently exposed people to asbestos can be held liable when workers develop this type of cancer. If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you have a right to seek compensation for your illness. The Colvin Law Firm diligently represents clients in the Gretna area and throughout Louisiana sickened by this malignant cancer due to asbestos exposure. We will work tirelessly to hold the companies responsible for making you sick accountable.
Established advocates advise on the environmental hazards that cause mesothelioma
Because mesothelioma has a latency period of 10 to 40 years, victims may not develop the aggressive disease until many years after exposure to asbestos fibers. Your risk of developing mesothelioma is elevated if:
- You worked with asbestos.
- You lived with somebody who worked with asbestos.
- Asbestos insulation was or still is used in your home, school or office.
- You received a polio vaccine between 1955 and 1963.
- You received X-ray or thorium dioxide therapy to treat or diagnose illness prior to the 1950s.
Because asbestos use was once widespread, people were exposed to it in many settings. If you've developed mesothelioma because you were exposed to this dangerous substance, we understand how serious your illness is and will strive to hold all negligent parties accountable.
Dedicated litigators hold negligent parties accountable
Many asbestos manufacturers and companies that used this dangerous material were aware of its risks and knowingly put workers in danger. Even brief exposure to asbestos can trigger the onset of mesothelioma. In many cases, your job or that of your loved one caused this disease by exposing you to a known hazardous substance every time you went to work. Industries where asbestos was commonly used include:
- Auto repair shops
- Insulation manufacturers
If your work in any of these industries exposed you to asbestos and you developed mesothelioma as a result, we will seek the damages you deserve. We also represent mesothelioma victims sickened in offices or homes or other places where asbestos fibers could be inhaled, leading to tumors that formed in the lungs but also in the abdomen and heart.
Responsive lawyers have your best interests in mind
If you have become ill because of your needless exposure to asbestos, our skilled advocates will guide you through a claim for compensation.
