Tragically, mesothelioma is not limited just to people who were exposed in plants or industrial settings. Workers who were exposed to asbestos typically carried the dust home on their clothes, thereby exposing their families. I have handled cases for mesothelioma victims who were exposed to asbestos dust as children and did not develop the disease until they were in their 50s.
Mesothelioma cases are difficult to prepare and resolve, and an experienced lawyer is necessary. Prior to opening my own practice, I worked at a firm that only handled asbestos cases. Since that time, I have handled many mesothelioma cases.
In 2002, I tried the last case to go to a jury verdict in West Virginia on liability and damages. That case resulted in the highest single-plaintiff verdict in West Virginia asbestos litigation. To read more, please see my settlements and verdicts page. I have the experience and in-depth understanding that is necessary to competently handle personal injury and wrongful death cases caused by asbestos.
