Asbestos Related Injuries

Mesothelioma and other asbestos related cancers is a rare type of cancer. It is deadly. Mesothelioma attacks the mesothelium, thin layers of cells lining the body’s internal organs, including the heart, lungs, and stomach.

There is only one recognized cause of mesothelioma cancer. Asbestos.

Asbestos was commonly used throughout the 20th century in commercial and residential properties and in industry.

Thousands of people unknowingly came into contact with asbestos. It might have been directly, from working with or manufacturing products with asbestos or working or living in buildings constructed with asbestos, or from living with someone who worked with it.

The evidence is clear. Big Business knew for years before the knowledge became public that asbestos led to mesothelioma or another asbestos related cancer.

It only takes a little bit of contact with asbestos to be at-risk for mesothelioma cancer. From the point of contact, it could take 10 to 50 years for mesothelioma or another asbestos cancer to develop.

Workers who have shown that they are most likely to suffer from mesothelioma or another asbestos cancer are:
