Bernstein Liebhard LLP provides this site as a resource for victims of asbestos exposure and their familes.  The site provides information about asbestos, asbestos diseases including mesothelioma, information about treatment options and centers, and information about your legal rights.  Mesothelioma, also known as “malignant mesothelioma” or “epithelial mesothelioma”, is a rare cancer affecting the mesothelium, a protective sac that covers most of the body’s internal organs.  The only known cause of mesothelioma is exposure to asbestos.  Thousands of products containing asbestos have been manufactured and disseminated to the public, exposing workers, homeowners and family members who are exposed to asbestos secondhand when workers bring it home in their clothes.  Because diseases like mesothelioma typicaly do not develop until many year after exposure, over 2,000 people per year develop mesothelioma in the United States, even though asbestos has been heavily regulated since the 1980’s.   

If you have been exposed to asbestos and develop mesothelioma or other asbestos related diseases, you may be entitled to compensation for claims you may have against asbestos manufacturers and distributors.  At Bernstein Liebhard, we represent asbestos exposure victims.  Our goal is to focus on your legal claims so that you can focus on your health needs and your family.
