Mesothelioma is an aggressive cancer which is caused by exposure to asbestos. The onset of the disease can occur many years after the exposure, sometimes even 20-50 years later. Exposure to asbestos may have occurred in work related environments such as shipyards, mines, construction and demolition sites, or factories. An estimated 3,000 to 4,000 mesothelioma cases are diagnosed in the U.S. each year. Not only were workers exposed to asbestos, but also family members were exposed to the fibers and dust brought home in clothing and tools. There are now many mesothelioma patients who were exposed to the secondary source.
Identifying and tracking the exposure source of mesothelioma is often difficult, but it is very necessary for pursuing your mesothelioma claim.
