Asbestos fibers are small, light, odorless, colorless and tasteless. They can stay in the air for a long time and are not easily detected. Asbestos was used in thousands of products over the last century and can be inhaled or ingested by those who come in contact with it in the workplace or at home. These tiny particles also stick to a person's clothing, skin, and hair. As a result, anyone else who comes into contact with that person may also be exposed to this dust. Upon inhalation or ingestion, this dust containing asbestos fibers remains in the lungs where it can cause serious disease.
Mesothelioma is a form of cancer that can affect the lining of the lungs, chest, and abdomen. Over 3,000 people in the United States are diagnosed with mesothelioma each year. Virtually all cases of mesothelioma are linked to asbestos, and symptoms generally appear between 10 and 40 years after an individual was exposed to asbestos.
Cancer cells can spread from their original site to other parts of the body. Working with asbestos is the major risk factor for mesothelioma.
The lawyers at the Law Firm of Oklahoma understand that filing an asbestos lawsuit is not a simple process. That is why we bring national experience and resources to the table, working with the Simmons Firm to hold asbestos companies accountable.
While each asbestos litigation case is unique, the law imposes certain time limitations on how long one can wait to file a lawsuit. You only have a certain period of time after you are diagnosed with mesothelioma in which to file your asbestos claim. We advise that you contact us immediately so that we can evaluate your case.
Mesothelioma typically does not develop until decades after the asbestos exposure occurred. Workers may have been exposed to asbestos at a number of jobsites throughout Oklahoma, including the General Motors Plant, Oklahoma Gas and Electric Power House, the Fort Howard Paper Mill and many others.
