Available Compensation For Mesothelioma Victims
Asbestos Exposure Causes Mesothelioma
Mesothelioma is a serious cancer that occurs in individuals exposed to airborne asbestos fibers. Those at the highest risk for developing mesothelioma include workers handling or installing insulation, shipyard and factory workers, mechanics, plumbers and electricians, among many others.
One cloud of dust from asbestos products can contain billions of fibers, and even a small amount of asbestos can cause lung problems.
Many workers are just now being diagnosed with mesothelioma or http://www.mesotheliomahelp.net/asbestosis as a result of working with asbestos as early as the 1940s. Corporations that manufactured asbestos-containing products knew about the dangers of asbestos as early as the 1920s but did not alert the workers or their families to the dangers. Failure to share this knowledge exposed workers to the risk of injury or death from asbestosis or mesothelioma.
Types of Compensation
Compensation to cover the losses suffered by workers and their families can be obtained in a legal action against the asbestos supplier, manufacturer or any other entity that was negligent in the manufacture or use of asbestos products.
Mesothelioma sufferers not only experience physical pain, but are also affected by rising medical bills, loss of mobility, and potentially loss of work. Compensation that may be available includes money for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and death benefits for surviving family members.
There may be other compensation available in your case such as Social Security disability and veterans benefits. Your lawyer will ensure you receive all money damages to which you are entitled.
