Asbestos & Mesothelioma
Asbestos has been used as a common material in thousands of household and industrial products. Asbestos fibers inhaled can cause a range of serious health conditions including COPD, asbestosis, lung cancers and mesothelioma, a condition that inevitably causes death. At The Law Office of Christian D. Chesson, we offer strategic representation to protect the rights of asbestos exposure victims and their families, individually, not through class action.
Asbestos exposure has serious and fatal consequences, and once exposed, the damage is done, even though effects may not show up in symptoms for many years. Contact us for consultation to learn more about your rights against a negligent manufacturer, employer or corporation in asbestos litigation.
Mesothelioma, Lung Cancer, Other Cancers, & Asbestosis CauseD by Asbestos Exposure
Mesothelioma is a cancer that attacks the membranes around the lungs, heart and abdominal cavity. Most victims diagnosed with lung mesothelioma notice symptoms at the point it is terminal, and many years after the initial exposure to asbestos. Symptoms include shortness of breath, chest pain or both.
Christian D. Chesson has received multi-million dollar settlements in the area of asbestos and mesothelioma related litigation. If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with asbestosis or if you have lost a loved one due to asbestos-related diseases such as mesothelioma or cancer, please contact our firm for a free consultation or case evaluation.
In Louisiana, victims of toxic exposures have a unique cause of action against executive officers (corporate executives, safety engineers, safety directors, and health and hygiene directors) for their negligence in the work place, prior to October 1, 1976. For exposures that occurred prior to 1976, you may have an action that individuals injured in other states may not have.
