Malignant mesothelioma cancer is a very rare form of cancer. It is a disease in which malignant cancer cells are found in the sac lining of the Pleural Mesothelioma (chest and lungs) or Peritoneal Mesothelioma (abdomen). The prognosis in mesothelioma is difficult to diagnose, due to the great variability in the time before mesothelioma diagnosis and the rate of disease progression. The first indication of mesothelioma is often by a simple chest X-Ray. For more clarification or confirmation, a biopsy or removal operation may be needed. Mesothelioma Stages are categorized in Stages I, II, III IV.

If you or a loved one has recently been diagnosed with Malignant Mesothelioma, call our office for a Free Confidential Consultation concerning the very important legal and medical issues. Due to the SERIOUS NATURE of this disease it is extremely important to move very quickly to investigate the work history, obtain names of co-workers, try and identify the types and brands of asbestos products in ones past, and document the different locations and  names of ship and other vessels that the exposed worker came into contact with asbestos.  While we understand it very difficult to remember each and every place one worked or the types or brands of asbestos one is exposed to, we have found that once a worker goes through notebooks of asbestos documents, catalogs and advertisements from the 1940's through the 1970's, the proper identification of the products is greatly improved.

PROPER BACKGROUND HISTORY AND INVESTIGATION TAKES TIME, therefore, the sooner one begins the better. It is especially the case when we are dealing with a client whose life has been turned completely upside down due to the disease, the medical treatments and the knowledge of the finality of the disease.

**** Immediately upon being hired by an injured worker or their family, an complete interview, work history, product ID, and medical background is done. Then with most Mesothelioma patients, suit MUST BE FILED IMMEDIATELY in order to obtain sworn evidence of the exposure, work history and product ID. The clients condition, physical pains, anguish, and evidence are documented in a sworn deposition.  Often times these depositions take place at the clients house, hospital or some another convenient and comfortable location for the client. In other cases, due to the advanced stage of this disease, a deposition of the injured worker may be impossible, and other ways of obtaining the necessary information and proof has to be pursued.
