Maine Mesothelioma Lawyers

Mesothelioma Attorneys Handling Claims in Maine

Mesothelioma is one of many dangerous and deadly conditions that can be contracted from asbestos exposure. During the years between 1980 and 2000 alone, 387 people died from asbestos exposure in Maine. It is uncommon that deaths due to asbestosis, a chronic, but not deadly condition, were much more common in Maine than those due to mesothelioma.
