Mesothelioma Lawyers and Mesothelioma Attorneys

Malignant mesothelioma is a preventable form of lung cancer that is only caused by exposure to asbestos. Asbestos is a fibrous group of minerals, which, due to its many applications and resistance to heat, was used frequently through the 1970s in navy ships, power plants, manufacturing plants, factories, construction sites, other buildings and countless consumer products, including insulation, automobile break pads, pipes, tiles, and fireproofing products. These asbestos products are possible sources of asbestos exposure. Asbestos companies knew of the dangers of asbestos but failed to warn workers or consumers. A mesothelioma attorney can explain you options for a mesothelioma lawsuit if you or a loved one have been exposed to asbestos.

Mesothelioma is caused by small, dusk-like asbestos particles that are inhaled; once breathed into the lining of the lungs, they cannot be extracted. The internal organs of the body are surrounded by a protective membrane called the mesothelium. Mesothelioma causes the cells of the mesothelium to develop malignantly. Though the disease is quite aggressive, the appearance of symptoms is often delayed for decades. Because of this, the cancer often spreads considerably before it is diagnosed. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has set limits for the amount of asbestos exposure that is allowed in the workplace. The number of mesothelioma cases has been rising and use of asbestos is not illegal. Meso Lawyers can assist in answering any questions you might have concerning mesothelioma.
