With 2,000 to 3,000 annual cases reported in the United States, mesothelioma is a rare and aggressive form of cancer that develops in the lining of the lungs, abdomen, or heart. It is primarily caused by exposure to asbestos, a fibrous mineral once commonly used in construction and manufacturing industries.

The people with the highest exposure are those who worked in asbestos industries, such as shipbuilding, construction, mechanics, oil and gas refineries and insulation. Many of these people recall working in thick clouds of asbestos dust, day after day.  Family members can also be exposed to high levels of asbestos because the fibers can be carried home on the workers’ clothing and inhaled by others.

Symptoms of mesothelioma can take decades to develop, making early detection and treatment challenging. Treatment options for mesothelioma may include surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy, but the prognosis for this disease is often poor.

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, it is important to seek medical attention and to contact our expert team to explore your options for compensation and support.
