Florida Mesothelioma Lawyer
Mesothelioma is an aggressive, deadly cancer caused by asbestos exposure. The workplace is the most common source, but its widespread use has left everyone vulnerable. This is the direct result of the asbestos industry intentionally concealing the dangers of asbestos to maximize profits.
The Florida mesothelioma lawyers at The Lanier Law Firm help individuals stand up to the companies responsible and recover the compensation they need and deserve.
Approximately 1,146 new cases of mesothelioma were reported in Florida between 2015 and 2019, and 831 people died during the same period. As many as 167 of these deaths occurred in 2019 alone. While this form of cancer is rare, asbestos exposure is nearly always to blame.
The companies that profited from asbestos could have prevented most cases of mesothelioma by disclosing the truth about asbestos to the public, providing protective measures for workers, and transitioning to safer materials. Not only did they fail to do the right thing, but they actively evade liability to this day.
The Lanier Law Firm stands up to large companies on behalf of injured individuals. Our Florida mesothelioma attorneys focus solely on mesothelioma cases and provide aggressive representation to ensure the responsible companies pay for the harm they have caused.
Why do I need a lawyer with experience in mesothelioma cases?
Asbestos companies and their attorneys are willing to resort to nearly any legal maneuver at their disposal, from refuting expert witness credentials to blaming the victim for their illnesses. They use every stall tactic available and are often willing to fight liability in court.
You need legal representation that is as knowledgeable about asbestos exposure as the asbestos companies’ defense attorneys and has the determination and resources to match. This requires a skillful litigation team of lawyers that is tough at the negotiation table and unafraid to take your case to court.
