Mesothelioma & Asbestos

Mesothelioma is a rare and dangerous form of cancer linked almost exclusively to asbestos exposure. It can take as long as 30-50 years to develop following the initial exposure and has proven highly resistant to medical treatment. This cancer is characterized by aggressive tumors that form on the membrane lining the lungs or abdominal cavity and is caused by inhaled or swallowed asbestos fibers trapped deep within the tissue. Mesothelioma victims have the right to sue negligent manufacturers, employers, or other responsible parties for financial compensation.  The mesothelioma lawyers at Jacobs & Crumplar can guide you through this process.

Mesothelioma Risk Factors

Exposure to asbestos dust is the primary, and almost exclusive, risk factor for mesothelioma. This risk increases for people exposed to high levels of asbestos or for an extended period of time. However, even individuals exposed for short periods of months or even weeks have developed mesothelioma. Those most at risk have worked in trades or professions where they came in contact with asbestos, such as construction, mining, and shipbuilding. Families of workers have also been exposed through asbestos fibers carried home on clothing, skin, and hair. Learn more about at-risk industries and professions.
