Mesothelioma is a form of cancer that originates in the mesothelium, which is the protective lining that covers many of the internal organs. The main cause of this rare form of cancer is exposure to asbestos. The main site for the development of mesothelioma is the lining of the lungs. Asbestos exposure occurs most commonly due to asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) used in many building supplies. Symptoms and signs of mesothelioma can include the following:
If you have experienced any of the above symptoms, you should seek out medical attention immediately. If a doctor establishes that you have developed mesothelioma, you can then contact us for the legal answers and guidance you need!
Mesothelioma signs and symptoms do not always manifest right away. Some individuals may only feel the physical repercussions of the disease decades after the exposure to asbestos. Exposure to asbestos can occur due to airborne level exposure to workers such as plumbers, electricians, and carpenters, as well as environmental level exposure in buildings, machinery, vehicle brakes, and homes built before 1999
The Control of Asbestos Regulations was introduced in 2006, with the goal to regulate, prevent and reduce additional work-related exposure to asbestos fibers. Our firm works with medical inspectors to assess the level of asbestos exposure and the type of asbestos to determine liability.
