As is the case in practically all asbestos and mesothelioma lawsuits, a claim is filed against the manufacturers of asbestos products.
If you have developed mesothelioma because of asbestos exposure, you will want to hire a qualified New Jersey personal injury lawyer. Even if you have only been exposed, hire a lawyer now.
Check with a lawyer in your locale to discuss more of the details.
Good luck to you.
