Almost all mesothelioma diagnoses prove to be fatal because there is currently no cure for the disease. This is a devastating blow for victims and their families who are facing the distinct possibility that their loved one will not be around much longer.
Mesothelioma is caused by asbestos exposure, so there is a chance that you contracted the disease from exposure on the job. That means that you and your family could recover damages for medical treatment, funeral expenses and other costs.

Our skilled attorneys work hard to hold manufacturers and others responsible for exposing unsuspecting workers to asbestos.

Widespread Use of Asbestos
Prior to being banned in 1977, asbestos was used in many industries, including:
- Automobile manufacturing
Asbestos was one of the most popular types of insulation because it is durable and exceptionally fire retardant. Because it can be easily transferred from one person to another through physical contact, inhalation or swallowing, workers did not have to work directly with asbestos to be exposed to it.
There is medical evidence dating as far back as the 1920s linking asbestos exposure to mesothelioma and other diseases. Yet, manufacturers and companies refused to acknowledge that link and continued using the material for decades. Because of this, victims and their families may be entitled to compensation. While compensation cannot cure the disease, it can provide some financial stability to victims and their families during this difficult time.

Investigating Asbestos Exposure
Most workers will not show symptoms of mesothelioma until 30 to 50 years after they were exposed to asbestos on the job. That can make it tough to investigate claims because victims may not remember when or where they came into contact with asbestos. Also, the place where the worker was exposed may have gone out of business.
That is why you need a skilled Hinesville mesothelioma lawyer to investigate your claim and get the facts. The Nye Law Group’s Hinesville mesothelioma lawyers can help you track down businesses that no longer exist and hold responsible parties accountable for their actions.
Our goal is to build the strongest case we can so you and your family receives maximum compensation. Our attorneys will conduct a detailed review of your work history, medical records and any other relevant documents to find out exactly when and where you were exposed to asbestos.
We will work tirelessly to find proof that your employer knew about the dangers of asbestos and still allowed employees to be exposed to this dangerous mineral.
Our Hinesville mesothelioma lawyers have represented many victims of asbestos exposure so we are prepared for any arguments defendants will use to avoid being held liable.

Filing a Claim for Asbestos-Linked Mesothelioma
If you were exposed to asbestos at work, you have multiple options for recovering compensation. If you were exposed to asbestos during your time in the U.S. armed forces, the Department of Veterans Affairs may provide special compensation for you and your family. You might also be able to get benefits from your employer’s workers’ compensation policy.
However, your workers’ compensation policy may not provide all of the coverage you need, and if you do not have such a policy, you will not get any benefits. That is why you should contact an experienced Hinesville mesothelioma lawyer to discuss your legal options.
The Nye Law Group’s skilled attorneys may be able to file a personal injury, wrongful death or workers’ compensation lawsuit on your behalf to help provide the compensation that can give you and your family financial stability.
You might be able to recover compensation for:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Loss of consortium
