Let’s Find the People Responsible for Exposing You to Asbestos

Mesothelioma is a rare, aggressive form of lung cancer that should be completely preventable. The only known cause of mesothelioma is exposure to asbestos, a heat- and electricity-resistant insulating material. Asbestos used to be a common building material worldwide, but its use has become extremely restricted since the discovery of its link to mesothelioma. Unfortunately, asbestos exposure still happens, and the worst part is that it can take more than ten years after your initial exposure for mesothelioma to develop.

The Raleigh personal injury attorneys at Thorp Law are here to help. Receiving a mesothelioma diagnosis is a life-changing event that can quickly feel overwhelming. We can’t undo this injustice, but we can help you and your family seek recovery from those responsible so that you can prepare for the future.

Don’t worry about legal expenses while we pursue your case. Our firm works on contingency fees. Call (919) 373-3390 to schedule a free consultation at Thorp Law.

What Happens Now?

One of the first steps in a mesothelioma case is figuring out where you were exposed to asbestos. Mesothelioma is most common in people who have worked in an industrial or construction-related field. It can also affect family members of these workers from asbestos spores that clung to their clothes. People who lived in buildings constructed before the dangers of asbestos were made public are also potential victims.

Some products that are currently or were previously made with asbestos include:

  • Brake pads
  • Ductwork
  • Insulation
  • Vinyl flooring
  • Talc powder
  • Paint
  • Chalkboards
  • Cement sheeting and shingles
  • Ironing boards
  • Furnaces and boilers

Once inhaled, asbestos fibers embed themselves into the lungs, but it can take years before the symptoms of mesothelioma are seen. As attorneys experienced in dealing with asbestos cases, we can help you narrow down the list of places you may have been exposed to asbestos so that we can hold the right people responsible.

This Is Worth Fighting For

At this time, there is no cure for mesothelioma. It is hard coming to terms with this, but even though the diagnosis is often fatal, that does not mean pursuing legal action is a waste of time. Recovering damages from a mesothelioma claim can help you cover medical expenses that improve your quality of life and provide your family with extra support. It is also important to raise asbestos awareness and let companies know that there will be consequences for not taking the proper safety precautions when using this deadly substance.

You and your family have dealt with enough. At Thorp Law, our Raleigh personal injury attorneys will handle the heavy lifting your lawsuit requires. We work on contingency fees, so you don’t pay us anything while we pursue your case, and we only take a small percentage of your final recovery package to cover our legal fees. If we don’t win your case, you don’t owe us anything.
