In the United States, there are thousands of cases of mesothelioma diagnosed every year. The majority of those are traced to job-related exposures to asbestos. The most common type is the pleural type, which forms on the lining of the lungs.
Mesothelioma is caused by exposure to asbestos. A large majority of our population have been exposed to asbestos at work. High rates of disease occur in people who mine asbestos, produce products from asbestos, work with asbestos products, live with asbestos workers, or work in buildings containing asbestos. The disease can take several decades to develop in the body. Washing the clothing of someone who worked with asbestos also increases the risk.
While there’s no cure for mesothelioma and the outlook is generally poor, researchers have made significant progress in understanding cancer and developing new treatment options and alternative therapies.
If you are diagnosed with a serious disease like mesothelioma, the last thing you need to worry about is lawyer fees on top of medical treatments and other expenses. Gerald R. Stahl helps clients by working on a contingency basis, which means that mesothelioma victims and their families do not pay a fee unless the client receives compensation or a settlement.
