Though the lethal danger of asbestos have been well-known since around the Great Depression, corporations still used asbestos regularly throughout the 20th century. Fixed on maximizing profits, greedy companies put millions of lives at risk of mesothelioma, an aggressive cancer that attacks the lungs and is primarily caused by asbestos exposure.
Though rare, thousands of people are diagnosed with mesothelioma each year. Many of these cases arise from the negligence of corporations who exposed its workers or the public to asbestos despite it’s carcinogenic potential.
Workers’ compensation and personal injury claims involving mesothelioma can be very complicated. Mesothelioma is typically not diagnosed until decades have passed since initial exposure. People exposed at 20 years old may not be diagnosed until they are 70. Because of this, necessary research often must go back decades. Facts and timelines to prove where and when exposure occurred require time, effort and resources you likely do not have.
