Get the Facts About Mesothelioma
More than $20 billion in trust fund money has been set aside to compensate mesothelioma patients who were exposed to asbestos. In many cases, victims do not have to file a lawsuit to receive compensation. The experienced mesothelioma legal team at Cory Watson Attorneys has helped many families collect the compensation they deserve.
Mesothelioma is an extremely deadly cancer of the membrane that lines the abdominal cavity and internal organs. There is no cure, and the only known cause is exposure to asbestos. The cancer occurs most often in the pleura (membrane between the lungs and the ribs), but it can spread or occur locally in the lining of abdominal organs or heart, as well. It has a long latency or “incubation” period, sometimes as much as 20 to 40 years.
Workers exposed to airborne asbestos fibers before the dangers were well-publicized and better regulated (before the late 1970s) are still being diagnosed with this disease. Between 2,500 and 4,000 Americans are diagnosed annually with mesothelioma.
Asbestos exposure can also cause many other diseases and people who have developed asbestos-related diseases may be entitled to financial recovery.
