A diagnosis of mesothelioma often comes with more questions than answers. Where do you get the best, specialized treatment? How do you figure out what caused it? Why do you need to seek individualized legal counsel?
Many assume that mesothelioma only attacks those who worked directly with asbestos over a career. Unfortunately, a spouse who laundered dusty clothing, a child exposed in a car or household use of baby powder may all be sufficient to cause the disease. And it can take anywhere from 20 - 50 years to develop.

What are your rights?
It is crucial to speak with an attorney about your situation. In Kentucky, there is only one year to bring a personal injury lawsuit.
Asbestos exposure may have occurred in a number of settings and these cases are complicated by the number of potentially responsible companies. Monetary compensation may be available to cover medical expenses and provide resources for your family.
