Advocating for Mesothelioma Victims’ Rights
Mesothelioma is an aggressive and deadly form of cancer that is caused by exposure to asbestos. Mesothelioma lawsuits more often than not lead to significant financial recovery for damages. People with mesothelioma due to asbestos exposure — or surviving family members of the deceased — are eligible to file claims against one or more parties for the harm.
What Are Mesothelioma Symptoms?
It typically takes 10 to 50 years after exposure to asbestos for mesothelioma to form. About 3,000 new mesothelioma diagnoses occur every year. Depending on the location of cancer, it can cause difficulty breathing, low oxygen levels, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, bowel obstruction, heart palpitations, coughing or chest pain. The average life expectancy upon diagnosis is six to 18 months. Asbestos exposure is the only known cause of mesothelioma.
