Mesothelioma Cases in Connecticut

Asbestos exposure is common for people involved with construction, shipping, and mining in Connecticut. Asbestos was a commonly used material in these industries because of its durability and ability to resist heat.

Because of the risks, using asbestos in construction ceased. However, the problem is that this change did not stop people from getting sick.

Proving asbestos exposure is tricky and complicated. It requires rigorous investigation to build the case. That is where an experienced mesothelioma lawyer from The Doctor Lawyer Team can help you.

Risks of Asbestos

Asbestos exposure can lead to mesothelioma, a type of cancer that is often fatal. The disease attacks the linings in your lungs, leading to inflammation and other respiratory distress.

The challenge is that the long-term effects of asbestos exposure, including developing mesothelioma, can take decades to appear. That means a lot of the evidence may not be available anymore.

The Doctor Lawyer Team has significant experience in this field and can help you build a case. Contact us to schedule a consultation.

Common Causes of Asbestos Exposure That Can Lead to Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is a serious condition that you should not ignore. If you have worked in certain professions or have lived in specific conditions, you may be at risk of having this disease. Note these common examples of workers whose risks of asbestos exposure can cause them to develop mesothelioma:

  • Firefighters putting out fires in old homes or buildings
  • Construction workers renovating or demolishing older homes or buildings
  • People who work in mines
  • Industrial and power plant workers
  • Shipyard workers

Types of Mesothelioma Claims in Connecticut

There are three types of mesothelioma claims you can make in Connecticut.

  • Claim against the manufacturer, distributor, or installer of asbestos - The challenge here is identifying the company in the first place. If you can do that, you can file a claim based on developing mesothelioma from their products.
  • Claim with trust funds for asbestos victims established by companies that have admitted to limited liability in the past - The purpose of the funds is to pay claims of people exposed to asbestos. You have to fit a specific criterion to be entitled to this compensation.
  • File for a workers’ compensation claim according to Connecticut laws if you were exposed to asbestos while working.

How to File a Mesothelioma Lawsuit in Connecticut

Filing a lawsuit for mesothelioma in Connecticut starts with finding the support of a legal representative who understands the rules and procedures. A mesothelioma case can be complex and confusing. It is crucial to find an attorney who can help you navigate it.

Once you are working with a mesothelioma lawyer, the next step is to do an investigation based on the facts of your situation. Different people get exposed to asbestos in various ways. Many cases have involved mining, shipbuilding, manufacturing, metalworks, and other industries.

The goal is to determine that you were exposed because of your involvement in these activities so you can file for a claim.

If you need help with your mesothelioma claim, contact The Doctor Lawyer Team. We will provide you with legal guidance in building your case. Start by scheduling a consultation with our Connecticut mesothelioma lawyer.
