What Is Mesothelioma?

Malignant mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that is caused by asbestos exposure.

There are two main forms of the disease: pleural and peritoneal mesothelioma.

Pleural mesothelioma affects the lining of the lungs (pleura), whereas peritoneal mesothelioma affects the lining of the abdomen, often spreading to other organs.

Asbestos Exposure

Have you, or someone you love, been affected by asbestos exposure?

Asbestos exposure has caused billions of dollars of legal liability over the years.

Globally, over 125 million people have been exposed to asbestos, and up to 33 million houses and buildings in the US are still affected.

Malignant mesothelioma is caused by ingesting or inhaling asbestos fibers.

Industries used to rely on harmful asbestos as an insulator and building material when its full effects weren’t yet known. Asbestos was once very prevalent in factories, buildings (roof tiles, shingles, etc.), industrial plants, and US shipyards.

People were even exposed to harmful asbestos fibers at home, as they are easily transported on uniforms and other clothes.

Asbestos exposure causes dormant health problems you may only see the full effects a long time after initial contact. Because its harmful effects are now known, companies have a duty of care to ensure people are safe from its carcinogenic effects.

If mesothelioma was caused by corporate negligence, you are entitled to seek compensation. This holds true even if the asbestos exposure happened a long time ago, or the relative you’re fighting for has already passed away.

Companies even have special asbestos trust funds to ensure they’ve got enough funding to cover the legal and medical costs incurred by mesothelioma.
