78-year-old deceased mesothelioma (Tennessee resident) who was exposed to asbestos through his work as a boiler tender through local unions at various refineries and power plants

Texans have faced high rates of mesothelioma for many years, not only due to the materials that proliferate our homes and businesses, but also the because of its expansive use in heavy industry across the state. For example:
Although heavy industry has been a major cause of asbestos exposure in Texas, residents across the state have developed mesothelioma from other occupations, from working with asbestos materials, and from living in homes and communities where exposure risks are high.
Our team at BCH has extensive experience with mesothelioma cases, and assists clients in identifying potential sources of their exposure. Because there is a statute of limitations in these cases – meaning a time limit – we encourage clients to contact us as soon as possible.

Prolonged exposure to asbestos can lead to the development of mesothelioma (a rare form of lung cancer) and other asbestos-related diseases. Because there are many potential exposure sources, as well as a need for extensive investigation and medical evaluation, determining whether you have a potential case requires an in-depth, personalized evaluation of the unique facts involved.
Factors important in a mesothelioma case, among others, include:
Though many asbestos lawsuits are consolidated into multidistrict litigations (MDLs), they generally operate as civil claims that seek financial compensation from defendants responsible for their harm and losses. In some cases, claims are brought after victims have passed away.
Because many companies responsible for asbestos exposure no longer exist, large trusts were created to pay out victims and families when they suffer mesothelioma, asbestos diseases, or wrongful death. Many of these trusts are valued in the billions of dollars – which means there is still compensation available for victims and families who wish to pursue legal action today.
Bailey Cowan Heckaman PLLC offers free, no-risk consultations to evaluate potential claims. When we handle cases, we handle all expenses, and clients do not pay any up-front costs; we only get paid if we win.
