New York Lawyers Handling Mesothelioma Claims
Mesothelioma is a rare, deadly carcinoma of the mesothelium, a thin membrane that coats many of the internal organs. New York is ranked fourth in number of deaths due to malignant mesothelioma. New York’s high death rate is likely due to a combination of factors including the heavy manufacturing industry in the state, high population and proximity to bodies of water. If you or a family member has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, please contact one of our New York mesothelioma attorneys to evaluate your claim.
