Mesothelioma is a very serious illness that can have dramatic physical repercussions, as well as cause emotional strain on you and your loved ones. What’s worse is that once the bills start coming in from medical visits, the financial burden can be too much to bear.
A mesothelioma diagnosis can be a shock and be difficult to cope with, but that doesn’t mean that help isn’t available. Speak with a Baton Rouge mesothelioma lawyer from Spencer Calahan Injury Lawyers to help you through this difficult time.
A lawyer can help you fight for compensation related to your cancer diagnosis by investigating how you were exposed to asbestos and who should be held responsible.
Investigating Your Asbestos Cancer Case
Your attorney will need to determine when, where, and how you were exposed to asbestos. Whether it happened at work, in your home, or some other way, we need to know what happened.
How your mesothelioma claim should be handled depends on this piece of information. Mesothelioma can take years to develop, so it may be necessary to delve quite a ways into your history to pinpoint the source of the exposure.
In many cases, construction and demolition workers are exposed on a jobsite. If that’s what happened in your case, the potential parties at fault may include the following:
- The company you worked for if they didn’t warn you and provide proper equipment
- The owners or managers of the property you were working at
- The original manufacturer of the asbestos material that was present
Any of these parties may have had knowledge of the asbestos present on the site and cut corners that could have prevented your exposure. Either way, multiple entities may be at fault, and your mesothelioma lawyer is prepared to hold them all accountable.
