Are You Suffering from Mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer that develops in the protective lining of many internal organs, is caused by exposure to asbestos, such as inhaling or ingesting asbestos in the workplace. Symptoms of mesothelioma may not appear for 20 to 50 years after the exposure.

You can sue for damages, and if whoever exposed you to asbestos knew asbestos was present, you may also seek damages to punish the party who negligently exposed you to asbestos. To protect your rights you should hire a Vallejo asbestos attorney to file your lawsuit and be your advocate.

How an Attorney Can Help

Fit. There are plenty of good attorneys out there; make sure you find one you are comfortable working with.

Statute – Refers to a law created by a legislative body. For example, the laws enacted by Congress are statutes.

Subject matter jurisdiction – Requirement that a particular court have authority to hear the claim based on the specific type of issue brought to the court. For example, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court only has subject matter jurisdiction over bankruptcy filings, therefore it does not have the authority to render binding judgment over other types of cases, such as divorce.
