Mesothelioma: A Lung Disease Caused by Asbestos

It takes mesothelioma a long time to develop, but when it does, there is no chance of recovery. Mesothelioma has a single known cause — exposure to asbestos. When diagnosed, 30 or more years may have passed since this exposure. Gray Ritter Graham’s experienced personal injury lawyers can help determine where and when the asbestos exposure occurred and pursue a claim for monetary damages.

Mesothelioma Attorneys on Your Side

Tragically, there have been instances where the dangers of asbestos were known but not passed onto the workers. Regardless, mesothelioma is a devastating disease that causes extreme physical suffering and results in wrongful death, which should be compensated by those responsible for the exposure.

At Gray Ritter Graham in St. Louis, we represent clients in Missouri, Illinois, Arkansas and the surrounding areas who have contracted mesothelioma.

  • Industrial plants and older buildings often used asbestos to insulate the buildings and equipment. Workers who installed the asbestos and those who worked near exposed asbestos could contract mesothelioma.
  • Asbestos was commonly used in Navy shipyards and in other shipbuilding facilities. Workers, many years later, have been diagnosed with mesothelioma.
  • The railroad industry used asbestos to wrap the boilers in steam engines, and in later years, both brake shoes and piping contained asbestos. Railroad workers did not know that their lungs were being contaminated by asbestos.
