Understanding Mesothelioma

Asbestos-related Mesothelioma & Your Legal Rights

Mesothelioma is a very rare but serious form of cancer that is caused by long-term exposure to asbestos. This cancer can develop 25 to 60 years after chronic asbestos contamination, and has often reached a dangerous stage in the victim's body by the time it is discovered. Mesothelioma may be treated surgically as well as with radiation, immunotherapy, and chemotherapy, but there is currently no cure.

Working or living in conditions marked by exposure to asbestos should be avoided at all cost. Unfortunately, many people are unaware that they are being contaminated by asbestos at their homes or places of work. By the time they find out, it could already be too late.

What Are My Rights?

As one suffering from Mesothelioma you have the right to medical benefits as well as the right to an attorney.
