Mesothelioma Lawsuits and Cases We Handle

we handle a variety of cases nationwide

Being diagnosed with any form of cancer is daunting. But patients with mesothelioma and similar conditions often face a poor prognosis at no fault of their own. Too many cases of mesothelioma and lung cancer are caused by asbestos exposure in the workplace. At Vogelzang Law, we believe negligent corporations should be held accountable for dangerous work environments and their consequences. Our team handles a variety of asbestos lawsuits concerning mesothelioma, talc contamination, and more.

Does Your Case Involve the Following?

At our law firm, we’re honored to have helped so many people come to a mesothelioma settlement or file cases concerning similar matters. If your case involved any of the following conditions or substances, reach out to our team.

Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is a rare and aggressive cancer caused by asbestos exposure. It develops in the protective lining (mesothelium) of the lungs, chest, heart, abdomen, and testicles and affects between 2,000 to 3,000 people each year. This condition takes decades to develop after exposure. In most cases, patients with cancer were exposed to asbestos in the workplace. If you’ve been exposed to asbestos and developed cancer as a result, we encourage you to discuss a mesothelioma lawsuit with Vogelzang Law. Our team has a track record of success in these cases, and we’re here to represent the hard-working people who became sick because of an employer’s negligence. The following occupations are at the highest risk of developing mesothelioma:

  • Insulators
  • Pipefitters
  • Construction workers
  • Mechanics
  • Bricklayers
  • Military veterans

Lung Cancer Following Asbestos Exposure

Asbestos exposure makes it more likely that an individual will develop lung cancer. Although asbestos exposure is the only known cause of mesothelioma, asbestos exposure can cause other types of lung damage, and in the worst cases, lung cancer. Lung damage due to sustained asbestos exposure increases an individual’s chances of contracting lung cancer. If you believe you’ve contracted lung cancer after asbestos exposure in the workplace, talk to our team about asbestos lawsuits. We’ll be at your side every step of the way. Common warning signs of lung cancer include:

  • Excessive coughing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Coughing up blood
  • Unexplained fatigue
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Wheezing
  • Chest pain

Asbestosis

x-ray lung cancer

Asbestosis is a condition in which scar tissue accumulates in the lungs and causes damage. This disease is chronic and causes long-term coughing, chest pain, and difficulty breathing. As you might assume by the name, asbestosis is caused when asbestos fibers are inhaled and get stuck in the lung tissue. Patients dealing with the fallout of this condition should speak with Vogelzang Law about making an asbestos exposure claim.

Contaminated Talc

Compared to asbestos lawsuits, we rarely hear about talc lawsuits in the media. However, exposure to asbestos-contaminated talc can be just as damaging. Talc, a mineral commonly used in several personal care and cosmetic products, has been linked to several types of cancer. Because talc and asbestos are mined in similar environments, talc can be contaminated by harmful asbestos particles. When that contaminated talc is used over a prolonged period, it can lead to mesothelioma. In past cases, trace amounts of asbestos have been discovered in baby and cosmetic powders. If you’ve been exposed to contaminated substances, get in touch with our talc attorney to discuss the claims process. Our team is here to help you build a strong talc lawsuit that brings you the compensation you need.
