Mesothelioma is a fatal cancer that results from ingesting asbestos fibers. Although it is often thought of as an occupational disease, anyone exposed to asbestos can develop mesothelioma. It is especially common among people who worked in the construction trades, military veterans, oil refineries and chemical plant workers, among others. Additionally, manufacturers in various industries used asbestos in their products because of its heat resistance, strength and insulating properties; it can be found almost anywhere.

Diagnosed With Mesothelioma

Doctors diagnose around 2,000 men and women with mesothelioma each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). In almost every case, the exposure to asbestos-containing products occurred at least 25 years before the diagnosis of the disease, as mesothelioma is a slow-developing cancer. This slow development made it easier for manufacturers of asbestos-containing products to claim that it was not toxic—even though they knew it was carcinogenic since the 1930s and harmful to the lungs even before.

Compensation is available for victims of this illness, as well as for family members of individuals who died due to asbestos exposure. There are many ways to obtain the compensation you deserve. To learn more, call the Law Firm of Ted B. Lyon & Associates at 866-335-1904. We are Texas trial attorneys who represent mesothelioma victims throughout the state.

Legal Options in Mesothelioma Claims

At your initial consultation, we will discuss legal options for obtaining compensation. These usually include some combination of the following:
  • Filing a lawsuit, which could result in a settlement or trial
  • Filing a claim against the organization where you were exposed to asbestos
  • Filing a claim with the Asbestos Trust Fund
  • Filing a claim for compensation from the Veterans Administration

The strategy depends on the circumstances of your exposure and the way the illness has affected you and your family. Having advice and counsel from one of our knowledgeable mesothelioma attorneys is critical to obtaining maximum compensation. It costs you nothing to talk with us and you only pay attorney's fees if we obtain compensation for you.

  • Dear Mr. Lyon,

    The purpose of this brief letter is to express my sincere appreciation to you for accepting my case involving personal injury and bringing it to a successful settlement. Before coming to you, I presented my case to three other prominent attorneys in the Dallas area and was turned down by each one due to the complexity of my case or the cost of proving liability of the other party. By accepting my case, you brought comfort to me personally as I struggled with physical therapy and recovery from my injuries. As I have previously told you, my preference would have been a court trial but considering all factors, I fully understand that you and your staff achieved the best possible outcome for me. Please express my appreciation to attorney Dennis Weitzel for his work during the last six months in bringing my three year old case to closure.

  • Dear Ted & Marquette:

    It was a pleasure to work with you on Dawson v. Fluor. Your office rounded out a great team, and my firm will look forward to the next time we can work together. Marquette is, without a doubt, a remarkable lawyer who cares about his clients, is self-less and is a great trial lawyer. His cross-examinations were brilliant. I will always refer Texas cases to your firm as I can 100% trust my clients will be served ethically, fairly, and skillfully. Beyond all of that – both of you are just wonderful people. I am as glad to have had the chance to get to know you. I regret that we cannot work together more often. Thank you for your great work on Dawson and for being great examples of our profession.

    My best –

    Beth Klein
  • Dear Ted & Marquette:

    Now that the dust has settled following our recent trial, I want to make sure you know how much we appreciate your assistance with the case. Both of you are obviously very talented trial lawyers, and the outstanding result we got could not have been achieved without your involvement. Our clients have told us more than once that bringing you into the case was the best decision we made on it. We made such a good team together we need to find a way to do it again. We have made sure that all of our lawyers both here and in our Oklahoma City office know who you are and, not only what good lawyers, but how good you are to work with. The fact that our verdict was the largest ever in Washington County, Oklahoma has not gone unnoticed by the Oklahoma bar, which could lead to other opportunities for us. If that should happen, Ted Lyon & Associates will be the very first call we make. Thanks again. Let's stay in touch.
