We’ve recovered millions of dollars in cases and settlements for mesothelioma victims and their surviving family members. Our principal attorney Michael Throneberry dealt with a mesothelioma diagnosis in his own family when his father passed away from the cancer in 2004. After helping fight the battle with his father, he has created a law firm entirely dedicated to providing passionate advocacy and representation for those who have been affected by mesothelioma.
My story with mesothelioma began back in 2001, when my father in law first noticed the symptoms of discomfort associated with mesothelioma. When finally he was diagnosed with the cancer in 2002, we realized that a lifetime of exposure to asbestos through his trade was the culprit. After that, a man who I had always known to be a strong leader slowly deteriorated due to the toll the disease was taking on his body, mind, and spirit. Having experienced this devastation so close to my heart and home, I knew I had to do whatever was possible to educate people about the dangers of asbestos exposure and, through the justice system, obtain compensation for victims, with the hope that one day, our society will no longer use this toxic material and thus expose people to developing mesothelioma.
Mesothelioma is especially tricky when it comes to litigation because it can take so many years (25-50) for the cancer to manifest after exposure. In addition, once manifested, the cancer quickly spreads throughout the body, not giving its victims long to live after their diagnosis. As a result, both treatment and the legal process need to be initiated right away after diagnosis, in large part due to the anticipation of impending medical costs.
These types of lawsuits work very similarly to personal injury lawsuits in that your attorneys will begin to collect evidence—evidence of past exposure, who exposed you, why, etc. As of now, asbestos being the primary cause of mesothelioma is fairly well documented, so the cause and effect relationship demonstrated to the court is all about tracing your exposure and who is responsible, and less about whether your definitive exposure to asbestos brought about your mesothelioma diagnosis. Many parties are involved in this process—include insurance companies—and it is possible that victims will pass away before a case goes to trial (if it does not settle), necessitating a wrongful death action on behalf of the individual’s family members. However, first and foremost, your medical expenses must be covered by the parties responsible.
