Newark Mesothelioma Lawyer

How Does Mesothelioma Develop?

It is widely understood mesothelioma is caused by exposure to asbestos, a mineral that was used heavily in New Jersey and across the US throughout the 1900s. Due to its low cost, resistance to heat, and versatility, asbestos was used in products for homes, buildings, cars, ships, and more.

Those most at risk of developing mesothelioma from asbestos exposure include the following:

  • Anyone who worked directly with asbestos or asbestos products
  • Those who lived with anyone who worked with those products
  • Anyone living in a home or building containing asbestos

Mesothelioma occurs when tiny asbestos fibers are inhaled or ingested and become embedded inside the body. Over time, asbestos fibers disrupt normal cell replication and cause the formation of cancer cells. Unfortunately, there is no cure for mesothelioma. However, treatments such as surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation can help manage the disease.

Types of Mesothelioma Claims

Being diagnosed with mesothelioma can significantly alter the lives of asbestos exposure victims and their loved ones. While treatment options such as chemotherapy and radiation are available to mesothelioma patients, these medications and procedures can be costly, quickly overwhelming victims and their families. 

If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma due to exposure to asbestos, you have the right to pursue damages for your physical, emotional, and financial losses. An experienced mesothelioma lawyer in Newark can help you seek justice through the following claim types:

Bankruptcy Trusts

If your asbestos exposure was caused by a company that is currently bankrupt, you may be able to pursue compensation through the business’ trust fund. Because bankruptcy trust claims do not require litigation, they often resolve quickly, allowing victims to recover damages as soon as possible. 

Personal Injury Lawsuits

Not all companies responsible for asbestos exposure have trust funds in place to compensate victims. Fortunately, you can still seek damages for your losses through a personal injury or wrongful death claim. When filing a personal injury claim, it is essential to begin your case quickly to comply with all filing deadlines.

If neither of these most common options are the best fit for your case, your Newark mesothelioma attorney can evaluate your options and determine whether you are eligible to pursue compensation through veteran’s benefits or workers’ compensation. 

Newark, New Jersey Has Been Affected by Mesothelioma

Essex County citizens have been adversely affected by mesothelioma. There were an estimated 349 deaths caused by asbestos-related exposure in this county from 1999 to 2013. The asbestos-related death rate in Essex County is 2.9 deaths per 100,000 people.

The following is a list of identified asbestos exposure sites in Newark:


These are not the only locations where asbestos products are or have been in the city, and there are many other exposure sites throughout the city.
