Have You or a Loved One Been Diagnosed With Mesothelioma?

Let Our Team Fight for You - Local Lawyers with a National Reputation 

Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer which develops in the mesothelium, the protective lining that covers many of the body's internal organs and is caused by asbestos exposure.

Many veterans as well as individuals who worked in shipyards, power plants, refineries, railroads, factories, and other industrial settings were exposed to asbestos during the course of their employment and are at risk for contracting mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases, including lung cancer and asbestosis. Housewives and children who lived with family members who worked in these industries are also at risk for mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases. Let our team fight for you! We have been at the forefront of asbestos litigation for the past 50 years. Our accomplishments include:

  • The first successful consolidation of more than 1,000 lawsuits, the first national settlement program with the asbestos industry.

  • The first Virginia punitive damage jury verdict against the asbestos industry (1991) and the largest punitive damage verdict in an asbestos case (2011).

  • For 6 consecutive years, PWHD's verdicts against the asbestos industry were listed in the Top 10 Verdicts for the state of Virginia. These included the following multi-million-dollar verdicts for mesothelioma victims:

    • $7,500,000 (2016); $25,000,000 (2011); $5,977,482 (2010); $3,800,000(2009);  $4,390,000 (2008); $9,300,000 (2007); $10,000,000 (2006).
