Mesothelioma — a hidden cancer
Although U.S. regulations on asbestos and asbestos exposure began in the 1970s, more than three decades later, nearly 3,000 new cases of mesothelioma are diagnosed each year. It takes 20 to 30 years for asbestos exposure to develop into mesothelioma, which is why construction workers, shipbuilders and factory employees exposed to asbestos are only now receiving a diagnosis and coming forward with claims.
Many companies that knew of the perils of using asbestos continued to expose their workers and consumers to products containing asbestos. Companies, contractors and even the military that subjected their employees to asbestos are now being held accountable.
Workers exposed to asbestos deserve counsel
The expenses and suffering associated with mesothelioma are overwhelming. The costs include the loss of income, medical treatments and the pain and suffering caused by the cancer. The plaintiffs in most mesothelioma lawsuits are workers or consumers who were exposed to asbestos and the defendants are makers of asbestos and companies that used asbestos in their products. People who did not have direct contact with asbestos but who shared a home with someone exposed to asbestos also may also have a mesothelioma claim.
In the civil courts, three types of asbestos injury cases exist:
- Personal injury claims by people who develop cancer because of asbestos exposure
- Workers comp claims by workers who used asbestos on the job and developed mesothelioma
- Wrongful death lawsuits filed by the family of someone who died from mesothelioma.
