Portland Mesothelioma Lawyer

There are many advantages to living in Maine: the beautiful scenery, delicious seafood, and fascinating historical background. Unfortunately, Mainers also face their share of struggles. A recent study has revealed that this state has the highest mesothelioma fatality rate in the US, a trend that is expected to continue for the next year or so.

Mesothelioma is an aggressive form of cancer that affects the mesothelium, a protective membrane over the heart, lungs, and other organs. Its only known cause is exposure to asbestos, a dangerous mineral that the government finally began to regulate in the 1970’s. Prior to that time, millions of Americans were exposed to asbestos in vehicles, factories, shipyards, and even their own homes.

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you may have grounds for a claim against the party responsible for your exposure. To learn about your legal options, contact the Portland mesothelioma lawyers of Williams Kherkher at 800-781-3955.

Even though it has been regulated for decades, asbestos continues to have an impact on public health and individual lives today. This is primarily linked to two factors: mesothelioma’s long latency period, which means people can become ill years after asbestos exposure, and the fact that asbestos is still present in many older buildings and products to this day.
