Mesothelioma and Asbestos
Industrial exposure to asbestos is a leading cause of mesothelioma, asbestosis, and other forms of lung damage. Many prior asbestos lawsuits settled, on the basis that companies knew of the dangers of asbestos, and were negligent in efforts to warn employees. Many companies setup trusts to fund past and future asbestos claims. People diagnosed with asbestos-related diseases may qualify for compensation from these trusts or other responsible parties.
How common is Mesothelioma?
Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer. Approximately 3,000 people in the United States are diagnosed annually, according to the American Cancer Society in their 2017 publication. More widespread public knowledge of the dangers of asbestos, and efforts to eradicate asbestos in the workplace may reduce diagnoses in the future.
What is Asbestosis?
Asbestosis is not cancer, and is not mesothelioma. While the diseases share a common cause, exposure to asbestos, asbestosis is less severe and requires different treatment. Patients with asbestosis experience shortness of breath, weight loss, and chest pain.
What To Do If You Were Diagnosed with an Asbestos-related Disease?
