As almost everyone today is aware, exposure to asbestos can result in a diagnosis of Mesothelioma, which attacks the lining of the abdomen, lungs, and heart. Mesothelioma treatment is challenging and is based on how quickly one is diagnosed, what part of the body has been affected, and how much of it has spread. Oftentimes the result of asbestos exposure is not apparent until decades after the exposure. Typically Mesothelioma it known to develop thirty to fifty years later.

With the help of a proficient product liability law firm, you may be able to recover significant compensation for injuries sustained from Asbestos and Mesothelioma, and you should absolutely consider speaking with an attorney.

Types of Mesothelioma from Asbestos Exposure

Although Mesothelioma cancer can affect any organ in the body, the most common type of Mesothelioma is Pleural Mesothelioma, which affects the lungs’ lining. Mesothelioma victims get Pleural Mesothelioma many years after inhaling asbestos fibers.

Other types of Mesothelioma are: Peritoneal mesothelioma (can be latent and produce no symptoms for years and affects abdominal organs) and Pericardial Mesothelioma (also can be asymptomatic for years before discovery). Inhaling asbestos fibers is one of the most common methods of asbestos exposure. Asbestos exposure through inhalation generally happens at work, due to loose asbestos particles floating in the air.

Other Health Problems Linked to Asbestos

  • Asbestosis.  Asbestosis is a disease of the lung. This occurs when scarring of tissue in the lung happens from acid produced by the body. The body produces this acid in an attempt to dissolve asbestos fibers. The scarring sometimes becomes so severe, function of the lungs ceases. It is thought that once exposed to asbestos this condition can lay dormant for ten to years.
  • Cancer.  Various cancers have been linked to exposure to asbestos. Cancer of the gastrointestinal tract, lung, larynx and kidney have all been linked to asbestos exposure. The dormancy for cancer can often be between fifteen and thirty years.

Mesothelioma and Asbestos Law Suits

In the United States, it is estimated that over 10,000 people expire yearly from asbestos related diseases. Even with these huge numbers, there is no general ban on the use of asbestos.

The ongoing litigation surrounding Asbestos has been the longest and most costly mass tort in the history of the United States. It has involved over 6,000 defendants and 600,000 plaintiffs.
