Mesothelioma & Asbestos

Mesothelioma is a life-threatening form of cancer that can be debilitating to those it affects. This type of lung cancer is almost always caused by exposure to asbestos, which often happens in the workplace. For over 40 years, the attorneys of MB&C have represented workers throughout Louisiana who have been exposed to asbestos and are suffering from lung cancer; recovering over 30 million dollars for our clients and their families.
