People go to work to support their families not thinking that they will be exposed to a potentially life-threatening substance. Yet millions of people each year go to work and are exposed to asbestos. Asbestos exposure can cause a potentially fatal form of lung cancer called mesothelioma. Mesothelioma is almost always caused by asbestos exposure and can take as long as 30 years to develop in a person. This is why many lawsuits are filed each year on behalf of retired individuals who worked with and around asbestos decades ago. Unfortunately, mesothelioma is a very deadly form of cancer, and when discovered late, there’s not much a medical provider can do to help. If you or someone you love has developed mesothelioma lung cancer as a result of asbestos exposure, contact an experienced asbestos attorney today to find out your legal options.
