Mesothelioma Lawyers Handling Cases in Florida

Florida is a state with the second highest death rate for mesothelioma in the United States. This is likely due to a combination of factors, including the large amount of asbestos usage throughout the state through the late 80s and the high number of retirees in the state (at greater risk for developing mesothelioma). If you or a loved one live in Florida and have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, please contact one of our Florida asbestos attorneys today.
