If you have contracted this rare form of cancer, we offer a free initial consultation to answer your questions about asbestos exposure and the legal options available to you. We represent mesothelioma victims in North Mississippi and West Tennessee, including Memphis, helping them to recover fair compensation for their injuries.

What Caused My Lung Cancer?

The only known cause of mesothelioma is exposure to asbestos. Asbestos is a mineral that was commonly used in insulating pipes, fire-retardant materials and certain other products such as brakes. Mesothelioma can develop years after the exposure to asbestos occurred.

Who Does It Affect?

Pipe fitters, welders and other union workers at steam plants and power plants in Memphis have developed mesothelioma after working on boilers that were insulated with asbestos.

Wives and family members of these workers have contracted mesothelioma after being exposed to asbestos dust on the workers' clothing.

Although workers' compensation claim for mesothelioma may be possible, it can be a challenge. Talk to an attorney who understands all areas of personal injury law and can talk you through your rights and the legal process.

Legal Options For Mesothelioma Victims

Whenever a person is diagnosed with mesothelioma, finding the cause is a matter of tracking down when and how the person was exposed to asbestos. The lawyers at Gilder & Howell, Attorneys PLLC, can help you do this.

Our lawyers work hard to find every possible way you could have been exposed to asbestos. Then we will file a lawsuit against all companies that may have been responsible for that exposure. We don't need to be absolutely positive which exposure caused your cancer. However, the stronger your proof of exposure, the stronger your claim.
