West Virginia Mesothelioma Lawyers

Before the serious health effects of asbestos became known, many manufacturers relied upon asbestos in a wide range of products—including insulation, gaskets, and ceiling tiles.

There was also widespread asbestos use in homes, ships, and industrial plants because of its high heat insulation properties.

While asbestos usage ranged from 1940 through the 1990s, workers are still being diagnosed with asbestos-related illnesses such as mesothelioma today.

This is because, even though the health risks of asbestos became known decades ago, employers failed to warn workers about the health risks of breathing in asbestos fibers or provide them with proper safety equipment.

Also, it can take decades for the following asbestos-related diseases to become apparent:

  • Pleural mesothelioma (cancer of the lining around the lungs)
  • Peritoneal mesothelioma (cancer of the chest cavity or stomach lining)
  • Asbestos-related lung cancer
  • Asbestosis: a non-cancerous, long-term disease of the lungs

Once the serious health impacts of asbestos became known, many employers and manufacturers deliberately covered it up in a negligent and reckless way. Only after the first successful lawsuits in the 1970s did the industry change. But the damage was done.

Millions of workers were exposed to asbestos fibers and dust—and in fact, their family members were also exposed to the asbestos residue clinging to their clothing and bodies.

While the link between asbestos exposure and disease is not disputed, the challenge in recovering damages is proving the source of the exposure, especially since the typical asbestos victim worked at many different industrial plants.

Prim Law Firm, PLLC developed a massive database documenting asbestos-containing products and job sites where asbestos was used. By comparing work histories and co-worker illnesses, we can trace asbestos exposure to specific manufacturers and the employers they supplied.

Brian Prim, a mesothelioma lawyer in West Virginia, has extensive experience in mesothelioma litigation. He spent 11 years running the West Virginia office of a large law firm that specialized in wrongful death and personal injury asbestos cases.

He recovered millions of dollars on behalf of clients and their surviving families in complex cases involving dozens of plaintiffs and defendants, and he can fight for you.
