Assisting Clients with Mesothelioma and Asbestosis Diseases in Wisconsin
Mesothelioma is a rare form of malignant cancer that attacks the protective lining that covers many of the body's internal organs. This disease is usually a result of exposure to asbestos. Mesothelioma is most commonly found in the outer lining of the lungs or the internal chest wall but may also occur in the lining of the abdominal cavity, the heart, or a sac that surrounds the heart called the pericardium. Victims of this disease may have worked on jobs where they breathed asbestos particles or have ingested asbestos dust or fiber in other ways.

Asbestos and the Law
Asbestos litigation has been long-standing and continues today. Because of the incontrovertible evidence of the health damage caused by exposure to asbestos, victims of mesothelioma and asbestosis may seek financial compensation for their health injuries. According to the Environmental Working Group Action Fund, 10,000 individuals in the United States die each year from diseases related to asbestos exposure. Asbestos exposure may still be a health hazard for 1.3 million people working in the construction industry or the workers involved in building or equipment maintenance.
Victims of mesothelioma and other asbestos-causing diseases may receive chemotherapy, radiation, or surgery but these diseases usually carry a poor prognosis. With as little as 1-3 months of asbestos exposure, an individual may develop an asbestos-caused disease such as mesothelioma.
