Asbestos Exposure and Mesothelioma
Asbestos exposure is the only known cause of mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer that’s often fatal. When asbestos fibers are inhaled or swallowed, they travel to major organs like the lungs and become lodged in the tissue there.
Over time, healthy cells and tissues can become inflamed and scarred due to the fibers. This long-term damage can lead to asbestos-related illnesses. It can take 10-50 years after exposure for an asbestos-related disease like mesothelioma to develop.
By the time symptoms appear and the disease is diagnosed, the prognosis is often bleak. If you are experiencing any symptoms related to asbestos exposure, please consult with your physician immediately.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, a mesothelioma lawyer in Pascagoula may be able to help you pursue compensation and justice. Contact us for a free, no-obligation consultation to learn more.

Filing a Mesothelioma Lawsuit in Pascagoula
Filing a mesothelioma lawsuit can help you cover medical expenses and secure your family’s well-being for years to come. Our Pascagoula mesothelioma attorneys can guide you through the legal system, making the process as easy as possible for you and your family.
Each senior attorney operates within a small legal team composed of several associate attorneys, paralegals, medical staff and investigators. This structure ensures you will receive personalized attention while your case works its way through the legal system.
There are a few different ways you may be able to recover compensation, and most of them don’t involve going to court:
- Asbestos Trust Funds: An estimated $30 billion has been set aside by asbestos companies to compensate people who have developed asbestos-related diseases.
- Mesothelioma Lawsuit Settlement or Verdict: Most mesothelioma lawsuits are settled out of court, before they ever reach the trial stage. If a settlement can’t be reached, our mesothelioma attorneys in Pascagoula are prepared to present your case before a jury who will determine how much you are owed.
- Mesothelioma Veterans Affairs (VA) Benefits: Veterans with mesothelioma may be able to access medical and financial benefits through the VA. We have VA-accredited mesothelioma attorneys on staff who can help veterans prepare their VA claims to access the benefits they are owed.
Statute of Limitations
Mississippi has a unique set of laws called statutes of limitations that restrict the amount of time mesothelioma patients and their family members have to file a claim. For this reason, it’s important to contact asbestos lawyers in Mississippi as soon as possible after your diagnosis.
