Mesothelioma Claim Eligibility For Injured Consumers

How Mesothelioma Develops

Asbestos exposure is the only cause of mesothelioma, cancer which develops on the lining of the lungs, abdomen or heart. When asbestos fibers are inhaled, they remain stuck to the lining of the lungs, abdomen or heart forever, leading to symptoms such as severe inflammation and tissue scarring over time. Eventually, malignant tumors will appear on the affected area of the body. It is also worthy of note that mesothelioma ensues within 20 to 50 years after you were exposed to asbestos, as it has a long latency period.

Asbestos Products & Manufacturers

During the last century, asbestos was present in over 5,000 consumer products, including household items such as hairdryers. However, the asbestos-containing products which cause the most harm are building materials. The following are only some of them:

  • Roofing sealant
  • Pipe lagging
  • Furnace cement
  • Wall panels

Mesothelioma Settlements and Litigation

In one of the largest jury verdicts in a single mesothelioma cancer case, a Los Angeles jury awarded more than $208 million in damages to a 71 year-old California woman who was diagnosed with mesothelioma after being exposed to asbestos dust that her husband brought home on his uniform every day in the early 1970s, while working for the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power.
