An Overview of Mesothelioma
Mesothelioma is a type of cancer that is caused by exposure to
asbestos. Like any cancer, mesothelioma will spread and cause tremendous damage
throughout the body if given enough time. Mesothelioma litigation is particularly
challenging because of the time that can lapse between contracting the
disease and the appearance of determinative symptoms. It is essential
to work with a law firm that focuses on this type of personal injury claim
so that you can obtain the full compensation available to you.
The lawyers of

We have obtained substantial compensation for our clients in successful
verdicts and settlements. If you or someone you love has contracted mesothelioma,

Types of Mesothelioma
There are three main types of mesothelioma, determined by the area of the
body in which the disease begins:
Pleural Mesothelioma — The most common form of mesothelioma cancer, pleural mesothelioma involves
asbestos fibers in the victim's lungs.
Peritoneal Mesothelioma — Peritoneal mesothelioma attacks the membranous layer, called the
peritoneum, which supports and protects the abdominal cavity.
Pericardial Mesothelioma — Although pericardial mesothelioma is rarer, it can be particularly
devastating as the cancer gets into the blood stream and the pericardium,
or heart lining.
