What is a Mesothelioma Lawsuit?
A mesothelioma lawsuit is a legal claim filed by victims and family members in Louisiana against the companies that produced the asbestos-containing products that harmed them.
Many manufacturers continued using asbestos in products long after the dangers were known, and in some cases hid the dangers from employees, contractors, and the public. As a result, individuals who were exposed to asbestos were diagnosed with mesothelioma, lung cancer, or asbestosis.
Mesothelioma lawsuits help provide the legal remedies individuals and families need to pursue financial compensation from the manufacturers for their damages.
Most mesothelioma lawsuits result in settlements, usually without our clients going to court. Contact our experienced asbestos and mesothelioma attorneys in Louisiana to learn more about how we can help you pursue the best outcome for your unique circumstances.
