Missouri Mesothelioma Lawyer


Asbestos is a natural substance that was widely used for decades due to its fire-retardant and heat-resistant properties. However, it also has toxic effects that can result in mesothelioma or other deadly illnesses. For decades, companies exposed their employees and others to asbestos, and thousands of people die each year from asbestos-related diseases. The Gori Law Firm’s Missouri mesothelioma lawyers represent clients in mesothelioma claims, and we can help you obtain compensation for your losses.


Each year, thousands of people die from diseases caused by asbestos exposure. Many develop their illness after long-term exposure to asbestos in their jobs, while others are at risk of sickness from secondhand exposure to asbestos fibers.

For decades, companies hid the negative effects of asbestos exposure from their workers and did little to protect them from the long-term health consequences. Following a series of lawsuits and investigations in the 1970s and 1980s, the use of asbestos began to decline. Even today, however, it is still found in some everyday products and older buildings.

You may be eligible for compensation if you’ve received a mesothelioma diagnosis. The Missouri mesothelioma lawyers at Gori Law Firm can review your case and explain your legal options.

Filing a Mesothelioma Lawsuit in Missouri

To recover compensation in a mesothelioma lawsuit, we must establish a link between asbestos exposure and your illness. Our asbestos attorneys are very familiar with locations in Missouri and throughout the United States where asbestos exposure is likely to occur. We can help you identify the source of your asbestos exposure using your employment history, previous residences, etc. 

There are various ways to obtain compensation in a mesothelioma claim, including:

Deadlines To Taking Legal Action

All states set their own statutes of limitations governing asbestos claims. In Missouri, mesothelioma victims normally have up to five years to initiate an asbestos lawsuit. Further, survivors of people who died from mesothelioma must file their wrongful death case within three years of their loved one’s death.

While the Missouri statute of limitations is lengthier than in many other states, victims of asbestos exposure should still seek legal assistance quickly following a mesothelioma diagnosis. Waiting too long will make it harder to prove your case and delay any compensation you are entitled to.

Quick Facts To Know

Asbestos Job Sites in Missouri

The Gori Law Firm knows of many sites throughout Missouri, including St. Louis, Kansas City, Joplin, and other cities, where Missouri residents may be exposed to asbestos. A partial list of some locations includes:

  • Missouri Steel
  • Joplin Cement
  • Thurston Chemical
  • General Motors
  • American Trucking
  • Interstate Brands Corporation
  • Boeing Company
  • Ford Motor Plant

The list of asbestos-exposure sites continues to grow. Shipyards, manufacturing sites, and power plants are some examples where asbestos exposure may occur.

Non-Occupational Asbestos Exposure

Asbestos exposure isn’t limited to people whose work requires handling asbestos. Secondary asbestos exposure is also a risk, particularly for family members who share the same house as workers. Some employees may unknowingly track asbestos fibers into their homes, where they disperse through the air and embed in sofas and carpeting. Anyone sharing the living space may inhale the fibers, resulting in future illness. 

Further, some people take on do-it-yourself projects that expose them to asbestos, such as drywalling, tiling, or other home maintenance projects. Their contact with asbestos can later result in deadly illness.

Older consumer products, like appliances and car parts, may also contain asbestos. Handling old products that contain asbestos may lead to health consequences, especially if exposure continues over time.
