It sounds like you may, indeed, have a case. You should contact a personal injury attorney who specializes in lung diseases (like mesothelioma, emphyzema, etc.) and have him or her evaluate the facts of your situation. You can find personal injury attorneys on www.attorneypages.com or contact your local bar association for some names.
