Mesothelioma is a serious, life-threatening illness that affects thousands of individuals each year. The experienced attorneys at Cory Watson have represented mesothelioma victims and their families for more than 30 years, providing valuable information, resources, and help to those affected nationwide.

What is Mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma is an aggressive form of cancer that is caused by exposure to asbestos. Symptoms of mesothelioma can include shortness of breath, cough, chest pain, fever, fatigue, and weight loss. Mesothelioma is most common in men over the age of 60 who were regularly exposed to asbestos on the job site. Asbestos exposure is commonly associated with the following occupations:

  • Auto Mechanics
  • Boilermakers
  • Blacksmiths
  • Carpenters
  • Construction Workers
  • Crane Operators
  • Electricians
  • Firefighters
  • Freight and Material Handlers
  • Furnace/Smelter Operators
  • Heavy Equipment Operators
  • Industrial Engineers
  • Insulators
  • Iron Workers
  • Machinists
  • Merchant Marines
  • Metal Lathers
  • Molders
  • Navy Personnel
  • Oil Refinery Workers
  • Painters
  • Pipefitters
  • Plasterers
  • Plumbers
  • Power Plant Workers
  • Railroad Workers
  • Roofers
  • Sheet Metal Workers
  • Welders

Over the years, individuals working on these types of jobs were often unaware of their potential exposure to asbestos or the serious risk of illness associated with asbestos exposure.
