You have worked hard over the years to provide for your family. Every day you've got up, got dressed, and headed to one of the many industrial plants in Calcasieu. You have done your best to stay safe and take the necessary precautions at work to avoid accidents. However, a few months ago, you noticed a cough that you just could not shake. You started having severe chest pains and dizzy spells, so you decided to go to the doctor. After what seemed like a hundred different tests, you found out today that you have mesothelioma, most likely caused by prolonged chemical exposure.

A million questions run through your head. How could this have happened? After all you’ve done to stay safe over the years, what could possibly have caused this? What do you do now and how are you supposed to pay for treatment? 

Who Is to Blame When You're Diagnosed With Mesothelioma?

Depending on how, where, and when you believe you were exposed, you can file a toxic tort for medical damages against whomever you believe was at fault.

Employers can be liable if they were negligent with chemical safety protocols, didn’t provide necessary safety equipment, or disregarded warning signs of exposure.

The chemical manufacturer can be liable for negligent packaging or manufacturing mistakes that cause dangerously high concentrations of toxic chemicals within the products.
Chemical companies or manufacturers can also be liable for polluting and placing dangerous chemicals in the air, ground, or water.

No matter who is to blame for your injuries, your claim probably won’t get very far without reasonable proof. An experienced lawyer can help you investigate and obtain evidence on where the chemical came from and whose negligence brought on the exposure.

We’re here to help you, and make sure all those involved get the justice they deserve. We invite you to contact us today for a free consultation.
