Medical Aspects Of Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is an aggressive cancer that strikes over 3,000 individuals per year. There are treatments and surgical procedures, but their use is often limited to providing relief from the effects of the disease.

Mesothelioma is generally contracted in the workplace by employees working for companies that cared too little for their health and exposed them to asbestos and/or asbestos-containing products. The only known, established cause of mesothelioma is asbestos.

If you are newly diagnosed and need information about the disease, we can help. We have useful information about treatment and surgical options, and a directory of doctors and clinics in central Florida that treat patients with the disease. We also maintain the latest information on nationwide clinical trials for mesothelioma.

Financial Aspects Of Mesothelioma

We have counseled individuals and families facing this situation for over 20 years and helped them address both their mesothelioma claim as well as plan for their families' financial future.

The lawyers of VanNess & VanNess, P.A., are dedicated to achieving justice for mesothelioma victims. We can help hold the companies that exposed you or your loved ones accountable.
