About Mesothelioma and Asbestos

Mesothelioma is a rare, deadly cancer caused by asbestos exposure that moves quickly once symptoms develop. Receiving a diagnosis of mesothelioma is devastating. It is sadly often caused by work-related exposure to asbestos, and often from exposure that happened many years prior to a diagnosis. If you or a loved one were diagnosed with Mesothelioma, Lung Cancer or Asbestosis, you may be able to bring a claim to seek compensation for your medical bills and suffering.

Mesothelioma can start in the lungs, stomach, or heart, and symptoms usually develop many years after exposure to asbestos occurred. Because of this, it is sometimes initially misdiagnosed — delaying crucial treatment. Exposure to asbestos is the only known and proven cause of mesothelioma.

Asbestos exposure can also lead to lung cancer or asbestosis. Lung cancer is a cancer that originates in the cells of the lungs, but can spread elsewhere in the body. Asbestosis is a chronic lung disease that can develop years after asbestos exposure. It causes scarring of the lung tissue and shortness of breath.

People most likely to have been exposed to asbestos include individuals who regularly used talcum powder products (e.g., Johnson & Johnson), people who served in the U.S. Military, and employees of certain types of industries, including:

  • Auto or aircraft mechanics
  • Boilermakers
  • Carpenters
  • Construction workers
  • Drywall installers
  • Electricians
  • Factory workers
  • Insulators
  • Miners
  • Painters
  • Plumbers
  • Shipbuilders

What Remedies Exist if You or a Loved One is Diagnosed with Mesothelioma, Lung Cancer or Asbestosis Following Asbestos Exposure?
