Mesothelioma and Asbestos
At Murphy Law Firm LLC, we represent mesothelioma and asbestos victims in Louisiana and throughout the world. With more than 30 combined years of experience, our lawyers provide aggressive litigation that is personally tailored to each client's needs.
"If you have been exposed to asbestos, the insurance company agents will try to minimize or deny your claim. Don't be a victim twice. I am a family man myself, so I understand how important it is to be able to provide for your family. I am personally committed to helping you get the compensation you need for mesothelioma. Call me." ∙ Attorney Peyton Murphy ∙ Contact Murphy Law Firm
Both mesothelioma and asbestosis require exposure to asbestos. They usually only strike people who have worked in high-risk occupations, and in some cases, their family members who frequently came in contact with asbestos. Family members of workers in high-risk occupations have been known to catch mesothelioma just from washing clothes together. Another example is the talcum powder that people use for babies after a bath, which used to be manufactured with asbestos.
What to Do if You Have Symptoms of Asbestosis or Mesothelioma
Some of the symptoms of mesothelioma include shortness of breath, chest pains and persistent coughing.
If you have been exposed to asbestos, either through your work or because you are a family member of someone who works with asbestos, the first thing to do is seek medical attention. Our attorneys can help you find a Louisiana physician who can detect and diagnose mesothelioma, asbestosis or other asbestos-related illness.
The next step is to talk with an attorney about your rights and options. We offer free initial consultations for asbestos exposure victims. You can talk with one of our lawyers and learn the options available to you. We will listen to your situation and discuss whether you have a compensable claim. Another important aspect of early legal intervention is gathering and preserving evidence. Through video depositions, we can secure powerful evidence of mesothelioma and document the toll that the disease is taking on your life.

One thing that scares people most about filing a lawsuit for asbestosis or mesothelioma compensation is the cost. Extended litigation of this kind is expensive, and it only pays off if you win. Most people are unable or unwilling to take that kind of financial risk. With Murphy Law Firm, you don't have to worry. We work on a contingency, so we won't charge you attorney fees unless we obtain compensation for you. Call 225-928-8800 in Louisiana or contact us online for a free consultation.
