Whether you live in New York or once lived in New York, if you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, Kelley & Ferraro, LLP, can help you fight for the compensation you need. New York is full of job sites and former job sites that have been identified as sources of asbestos contamination. Asbestos exposure can trigger a variety of health problems, including mesothelioma. Mesothelioma is the most well-known asbestos-related disease because:
- Its only known cause is asbestos exposure.
- It is a deadly disease with no known cure.
- It often takes years to develop, so people who were exposed to do not know for a very long time that they will be personally affected.
- People who suffer from mesothelioma face many struggles, and their families are left to cope with many losses and expenses even after the sick person has passed away.
- Thousands of New Yorkers and people in other states have died of mesothelioma. Hundreds or thousands more are still struggling with the disease.
When Should You Consult A Lawyer About Your Mesothelioma Diagnosis?
You may have heard about statutes of limitations. In the case of mesothelioma, a statute of limitations does not date to when asbestos exposure took place, but rather, it dates to when a person has learned he or she has the disease.
Once you have received a diagnosis of mesothelioma, you should act promptly to seek qualified legal counsel. Kelley & Ferraro, LLP, has a strong law practice in the area of mesothelioma litigation. Our attorneys have recovered nearly $1 billion for asbestos and mesothelioma clients throughout the United States. We can help you pursue compensation once you know you have mesothelioma.
We also file wrongful death lawsuits on behalf of surviving family members of individuals who have already died of mesothelioma.
