Legal Counsel for mesothelioma
Thirty people a day die from mesothelioma. This rare form of cancer affects people usually from the age of 60 to 69 and now the symptoms are showing up in people as young as 51. Millions of people will die from this disease. Mesothelioma is a cancer that is contracted solely from exposure to asbestos, working directly with asbestos, or with products that contain asbestos. Millions of people working in the military, mines, factories, manufacturering, home insulation, and the families of the victims alike may be affected from this disease. The sad truth is that many of the large chemical companies were well aware of the risk for lung cancer, but hid their own findings for fear of lawsuits. An even sadder truth is that governments worldwide did not take interest in this disease and provide regulation within the industry prior to 1970. Today most asbestos products are banned in most industrialized countries.
If you or a love one suffers from mesothelioma there is still time to seek out a lawyer to initiate a lawsuit.
