Baltimore MD Mesothelioma Sufferers Pursuit for Justice
When asbestos was first discovered, it was a welcome asset to manufacturers for a number of reasons. It’s naturally occurring, highly durable, and can withstand high temperatures. As a result, it was commonly used in many industries. However, the connection between asbestos and cancer wasn’t determined until the 1940’s. Asbestos exposure is said to be the primary cause for mesothelioma which is a serious form of cancer. Those who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma because of exposure to asbestos may have grounds to file an asbestos lawsuit with the help of Baltimore MD attorneys. Brown | Kiely has the experience necessary, paired with an intimate knowledge of mesothelioma to help victims seek settlements for their damages.
Unfortunately, there is no cure for mesothelioma. For some, proactively receiving regular cancer screenings following asbestos exposure can help to catch the disease early on. However, for many, this is not the case. Because mesothelioma can take anywhere from 10-30 years to develop, the cancer has often progressed by the time a diagnosis is made. If you have fallen victim to asbestos exposure and have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you will want to move on as quickly as possible. Brown | Kiely can help you determine if you have grounds for filing an asbestos lawsuit against your present or former employer in Baltimore MD. We have decades of experience representing those who have fallen victim to this terrible disease.
