Serving Victims of Mesothelioma in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Washington, D.C.
Peter Angelos Law currently represents individuals diagnosed with mesothelioma, lung cancer, and other cancers that develop as a result of asbestos exposure, as well as those diagnosed with non-malignant asbestos related lung diseases.
What is Mesothelioma?
Mesothelioma is an aggressive and rare form of cancer that has been linked to asbestos exposure—even those exposures that are brief. The disease affects the lining of the lungs, or the abdomen and heart, and eventually hinders those organs’ ability to perform essential functions. Mesothelioma is a debilitating disease that can devastate victims and families physically, emotionally and financially.
What is Asbestos?
Asbestos is naturally occurring mineral fiber found in certain types of rocks. The mineral was found to have heat-resistant properties and malleable strength, and as a result, was used throughout a number of industrial and commercial sectors, and in thousands of residential homes, commercial buildings, and consumer products.
