					Mesothelioma Lawyer Information &
Asbestos Cancer Information.
Mesothelioma is one of the deadliest forms of cancer known today - an incurable disease
that claims the lives of thousands of victims in the United States each year.

While medical science continues to develop miraculous technology that prolongs many
of the lives ravaged by this insidious condition, a cure for mesothelioma is still out of
reach and the prognosis is always fatal. Tragically, there is usually little time left after a
mesothelioma diagnosis, and physicians are left with few options except to help alleviate
physical suffering and ensure that a victim's final days are as comfortable and pain-free as
possible.

consuming responsibility. This is why the guidance of an experienced Mesothelioma
lawyer is critical in helping victims and their families seek and receive financial

home, workplace, many workers in older factories, ore mines, and shipyards were at risk
of asbestos exposure.

   •   Engineers

Mesothelioma Cancer:
Cancer can attack any system or organ in the body, and very often shows few external
symptoms until it is too late. Another lethal aspect of cancer derives from the nature of
cancerous cells to spread to healthy surrounding tissues by means of the circulatory or
lymphatic systems. This combination of factors has made cancers like mesothelioma the
single greatest threat to health around the globe.

Mesothelioma is a particularly destructive cancer, for decades pass between exposure to
the asbestos and appearance of cancerous symptoms. Further complicating mesothelioma
treatment is the malignant nature of the cancer, for once symptoms surface, current
therapeutic treatments are usually no longer effective and post-diagnosis survival rates
typically range from four months to a year.

Even though mesothelioma is a rather rare condition, there are a number of professions
that exposed people to this deadly and incurable disease. Many people who worked in or
around military installations, or in the automotive, construction, or chemical industries
now exhibit the first signs of mesothelioma. Asbestos was used for decades as insulation
or in building materials, which potentially exposed millions of workers to this deadly
cancer. Most doctors and medical experts agree that there will be tens of thousands of
new cases of mesothelioma in the years to come.

Facts about Asbestos and Mesothelioma:
There is only one known cause of mesothelioma: exposure to asbestos.

Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral used for centuries in insulation, clothing, and
fire-resistant materials. Ancients praised this versatile material, but also decried the lethal
nature of the small fibers easily inhaled by anyone who used it. It was not until the 20th
century that X-Rays, computed axial tomography (CAT) scans, and magnetic resonance
imagery (MRI) revealed the extensive damage caused by these microscopic fibers. Even
though advances are made every day in modern times, medical science is still only
beginning to provide adequate treatment for mesothelioma.

Asbestos Exposure Facts.
Responsibility for deadly asbestos exposure is primarily due to the proliferation of
asbestos related materials combined with the negligence of the injury to properly warn
their employees and consumers about the dangers of their products. For years the
asbestos industry concealed or minimized the potential dangers their products posed in
the name of profits, fearing lawsuits and diminished demand would ruin their businesses.
Ultimately, this deception and negligence virtually destroyed the industry and nearly
bankrupted several prominent insurance companies responsible for protecting asbestos
companies against potential lawsuits.

If you are suffering from mesothelioma, or have lost a loved one to the disease, you may
have the right to receive reparations from the asbestos industry that failed to adequately
warn consumers of the grave risks associated with their product. A knowledgeable and
understanding mesothelioma lawyer will help you fight for justice and the financial
compensation to offset those spiraling medical expenses and to provide financial security
for your family's future. Don't hesitate though, because the law limits how much time you
