What is Mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma is a deadly cancer that attacks the tissue lining the body’s major organs, including in the abdomen, chest wall, and lungs. Asbestos is the only known and proven cause of mesothelioma.

People who worked with asbestos products or were exposed secondhand frequently breathed in the small fibers in the air, which cling to the tissue lining the lungs and other organs and cannot be removed by the body. These fibers can cause lung cancer, asbestosis, and other major ailments decades later, in addition to the lethal asbestos cancer mesothelioma.

Sadly, asbestos companies have known about the risks of asbestos for decades but covered up the risk, leaving many civilian employees and military personnel to suffer the consequences of repeated exposure.

Even worse is that mesothelioma is an expensive condition to treat, with the cost of diagnostic tests, medication, and surgeries adding up quickly. These prices have continued to rise, leaving many to struggle not only to maintain their physical health but their financial health as well.

Even if your loved ones have already passed, you may still be eligible to take legal action to secure some form of compensation on their behalf.

Countless individuals have lost loved ones too soon due to suffering from mesothelioma and are filing product liability lawsuits against negligent companies. If you have questions about whether you would be eligible for compensation or how to navigate this complex process, consider speaking with professional legal counsel today.

What is Asbestos, and How Does it Cause Mesothelioma?

Asbestos refers to a group of six fibrous minerals that can be found naturally in the environment, according to the National Cancer Institute.
Asbestos has been used in the manufacture of many commercial and household products, including (but not limited to):

  • Pumps, Valves, and Boilers;
  • Roofing and Siding;
  • Floor Tiles;
  • Plaster, Cement, and Caulk;
  • Insulation;
  • Automotive Brakes and Clutches; and
  • Lab Equipment.

When transformed—either through sanding, cutting, or scraping—these products release millions of fibers into the air, where even a modest amount can have a major negative health impact. Even worse, the dust can linger in the space for weeks, only to be further spread as the areas are swept or cleaned.
These particles are then breathed in by civilian or military personnel and lodge themselves into the mesothelium tissue that lines the chest cavity, lungs, and abdominal organs, leading to a plethora of health problems, including but not limited to:

  •  Mesothelioma;
  • Lung Cancer;
  • Asbestosis; and
  • Pleural Plaques.

Who Is at the Highest Risk for Exposure?

Civilian Exposure

For many years, asbestos was utilized in a large number of industrial and commercial products. Unfortunately, companies failed to warn workers about the risk, and employers failed to adopt the necessary prevention measures and safety procedures to protect them from inhaling hazardous asbestos fibers in the air. As such, it was possible for anyone nearby where asbestos products were being handled to become exposed.

Among the most typical professions at risk are:

  • Construction workers;
  • Industrial workers;
  • Electricians;
  • Plumbers;
  • Mechanics;
  • Firefighters;
  • Boilermakers;
  • Machinists;
  • Shipbuilders and shipyard workers; and
  • Welders and metalworkers.

Military Exposure

Many former veterans, particularly those in the Navy and Coast Guard, who served our country on ships that were insulated with asbestos, are still being diagnosed with asbestos-related diseases, particularly mesothelioma and lung cancer.

Asbestos was used extensively on carriers, destroyers, repair vessels, and support ships. If you have an asbestos-related disease, you may have legal options that can provide you with both financial and medical assistance.

Why File an Asbestos and Mesothelioma Lawsuit?

Mesothelioma lawsuits can help impacted individuals and their families focus on their treatment and recovery rather than struggling to tackle the overwhelming cost of treatment or funeral expenses. Additionally, they hold manufacturers and companies responsible for the dangers they put our country’s workforce and service members in.

Who Can File a Mesothelioma Lawsuit?

Individuals diagnosed with mesothelioma, asbestosis, lung cancer, and other asbestos-related disorders may be able to seek legal recourse through a lawsuit.

Mesothelioma lawsuits are a form of product liability action filed to obtain financial compensation from negligent organizations that manufactured asbestos items to help pay for treatments and other expenditures. The cause of your mesothelioma diagnosis must be established in your case as asbestos exposure.

If the mesothelioma patient is too ill or passes away before a case can be initiated against the corporation or companies at fault, a spouse, adult child, or another estate representative may be allowed to bring a lawsuit on the patient’s behalf.

Working With a Firm You Can Trust

Matters concerning you or a loved one’s personal health are very personal in nature. As such, it is vitally important that you choose a firm you can trust when you decide to file a mesothelioma lawsuit. You should feel comfortable with the attorneys you work with and be satisfied with the answers you receive before committing to action.
