Here are some important facts about mesothelioma cases that you should know.
Mesothelioma, a type of cancer that usually affects the lungs and chest cavity, is most often caused by exposure to asbestos fibers or dust. Mesothelioma has a long latency period, which means it may be many years between the initial exposure to asbestos and the time of diagnosis. Even though the risks of asbestos exposure have been known to be hazardous for decades, many companies decided to take no action. If you or someone you love was diagnosed with mesothelioma, you have a legal right to pursue compensation from the companies that put you and your loved ones at risk.
Your attorney will take a complete history from individuals who have been exposed. Once your attorney identifies the company that is likely responsible for the exposure to asbestos, the litigation process is started. Mesothelioma cases are typically expedited so that the claimants can receive compensation for their injuries as soon as possible.
