Mesothelioma is a unique cancer which affects the lining of the chest cavity and sometimes the gut. It is a very aggressive cancer and in North America is almost always linked to exposure to different types of asbestos dust. If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, several different companies can be held legally responsible for your damages.
Who is responsible?
The companies which can be held liable are the companies which manufactured asbestos containing products, such as pipe insulation, block insulation, gaskets, packeting and other insulation materials. Additionally, employers and contractors who exposed their employees or other co-workers to asbestos-containing dust may be held liable.
If you worked as an employee of a contractor at a facility such as a power house, chemical plant, or steel mill, you are likewise allowed, under West Virginia law, to sue the premises (facility) owner who exposed you to asbestos-containing dust.
