Mesothelioma is an aggressive form of cancer that affects the mesothelium (a thin, protective lining around the lungs, heart and other parts of the body) and tends to be resistant to normal cancer treatments. Almost all cases of this cancer are caused by direct or indirect (secondary) exposure to asbestos. The first lawsuits against asbestos manufacturers began in 1929. It was discovered that the hazardous effects on the body were known about and kept hidden by the companies manufacturing and selling the product. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, we encourage you to speak with a lawyer at our firm as soon as possible. You may be eligible for financial compensation.
Help for Mesothelioma Victims
Asbestos was used extensively in construction materials (as insulation for both homes and office buildings), household appliances and floor tiles. Exposure can be extremely brief and can still cause devastating effects. Occupations particularly at risk for contracting mesothelioma are construction workers, military veterans, demolition crews, car mechanics, insulators, asbestos mine workers and manufacturing plant workers.
