Wichita Mesothelioma Attorney
Asbestos is a toxic mineral that was once found in building insulation, roof shingles, vehicles, consumer goods, and other products. Its danger lies in the long, thin crystal fibers from which it is made. These fibers can break free when asbestos is handled and may be inhaled by those nearby. Over time, these fibers can cause irritation and scarring, and may lead to the development of cancer in the lungs and other organs.
One of the most tragic consequences of asbestos exposure is mesothelioma, an aggressive cancer that attacks the protective lining of the lungs and heart. The majority of mesothelioma sufferers were exposed to asbestos at jobs where they were not given adequate protection or even basic safety information. Today, Wichita mesothelioma attorneys Williams Kherkher fight for the rights of these injured workers and their families.
If you or a loved one has been exposed to asbestos at work or through the use of dangerous consumer products, call our offices at 800-781-3955 to discuss how we can help you.

Mesothelioma has a long latency period, meaning that it can develop for years or even decades until symptoms become apparent. As a result, many people exposed to asbestos prior to the 1970s are only becoming ill today. In addition, there are still many older buildings and goods containing asbestos.
