Mesothelioma Attorneys in Virginia and Nationwide
Mesothelioma is a rare cancer that is caused by exposure to asbestos particles. While the malignant form of mesothelioma is not curable, treatment can prolong life and make the symptoms easier to bear.
At Wallace & Graham, P.A., we represent mesothelioma victims throughout Virginia, including people living in Richmond, Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Newport News and surrounding areas. We also handle claims for clients throughout the Southeast and nationwide.
What Is Mesothelioma?
Mesothelioma is sometimes mistakenly called lung cancer. It is actually a cancer of the linings around the lungs and adjacent organs.
It can take up to 50 years for the symptoms of mesothelioma to be diagnosed. Once diagnosed, however, the disease works quickly. The average life expectancy after diagnosis is 18 months. An experienced mesothelioma attorney can help to identify the cause of the disease, and pursue compensation from liable parties.
Who Is at Risk of Mesothelioma?
Our clients include people who were employees at power plants, shipyards, factories and other Virginia job sites, and have been exposed to asbestos. U.S. Navy veterans in Virginia are also at risk, as many naval vessels contained high concentrations of asbestos.
Our Virginia mesothelioma attorneys are committed to connecting clients to the medical care they need to improve their quality of life and give them more time. We are also committed to helping clients recover fair and just compensation for the losses they have suffered due to mesothelioma.
