What is Mesothelioma?
The use of asbestos has been the cause of countless lawsuits and settlements.
Mesothelioma is an aggressive form of cancer that affects the membrane lining of the lungs and abdomen. Primarily caused by asbestos exposure, mesothelioma prognosis is difficult as the disease shows symptoms that mimic other ailments. Although mesothelioma life expectancy is hard to predict and the disease has no known cure, treatment such as surgery and chemotherapy can help improve the typical mesothelioma prognosis.
For almost a century, thousands of unsuspecting workers were exposed to asbestos as they worked in factories, mills, and other industrial occupations. Since mesothelioma can be caused by secondhand exposure, the employees’ family and friends were unknowingly put at risk. Additionally, those who were involved in the cleanup process of Ground Zero after the 9/11 attacks may have been exposed to dangerous asbestos particles and could be eligible for the Victim Compensation Fund.
Although asbestos manufacturers and corporations have known about the dangers of asbestos since the late 1920s, they’ve chosen to risk their employees’ health by continuing to manufacture and distribute products containing asbestos.
