Mesothelioma Help Center - MESOTHELIOMA TREATMENT CENTERS

Did You Know?
Each year 4,000 Americans and many thousands more worldwide develop mesothelioma, and millions of us are at risk.

Asbestosa Treatment Centers

Asbestos was used in many products that were made for protection from heat and flame. This included actual clothing, such as gloves, to stuffing asbestos insulation into electrical conduit, to using asbestos to make fire proof cloth for use in power plants or petroleum refineries.

Asbestos also has excellent insulation and noise deadening qualities. This meant that asbestos was used in many construction products, including floor and ceiling tiles and wall board. Any home built before 1978 probably contains asbestos somewhere.

Asbestos exposure occurs when the asbestos that is in the products becomes damaged. Once damaged, the asbestos fibers are released into the air. The fibers are microscopic, smaller even than a grain of pollen, and invisible to the naked eye. The asbestos fibers, if inhaled or ingested, can become lodged into the body where it can create severe medical problems.

The Mesothelioma Help Center is another tool to give mesothelioma patients and their families the latest and most relevant information about mesothelioma cancer, offer hope and support, and help patients and medical professionals with quick mesothelioma answers and support to find experienced mesothelioma legal representation in your state. We encourage you to send us new information to share with our readers of new treatments and hope for mesothelioma victims.

Mesothelioma is an aggressive cancer caused by asbestos. For decades, asbestos was used heavily in construction, industry, the Navy, even household products and appliances. It is still present in many homes, schools, and office buildings. The disease can arise from small exposures, and even as much as 50 years later. As a result, each year 4,000 Americans and many thousands more worldwide develop mesothelioma, and millions of us are at risk.

MESOTHELIOMA TREATMENT CENTERS - Note of Urgency

  • The first lawsuits against asbestos manufacturers were in 1929. Since then, many lawsuits have been filed against asbestos manufacturers and employers, for neglecting to implement safety measures after the links between asbestos, asbestosis, and mesothelioma became known (some reports seem to place this as early as 1898).
  • A good Mesothelioma attorney understands the unique complexities involved in this kind of litigation lawsuit, including asbestos product identification, specific asbestos-related medical issues, and specific time constraints that narrow the window of opportunity to file a claim.
  • It is important to find the right Mesothelioma lawyer before your state’s statutes of limitations expires, leaving you and your family grieving and empty-handed. There's no time to wait - contact our mesothelioma lawyers today for a free case review.
  • We have helped many people get experienced legal and medical help for their mesothelioma cancer and asbestos cancer cases. We will actually walk you though the process of contacting an experienced mesothelioma lawyer that we have worked with to get you the best possible settlement for your mesothelioma case.
  • It is not uncommon for there to be 10-20 parties that are named in a mesothelioma lawsuit that are located across the United States. For example, a worker in California may have been exposed to asbestos from asbestos products shipped from Libby, Montana or from an iron ore plant in St. Paul Minnesota. This is why it is very important to obtain an experienced mesothelioma lawyer knows all of the companies in each state who have responsibility for your asbestos exposure.

MESOTHELIOMA TREATMENT CENTERS - New Mesothelioma Cases

  • It has been well documented for many years that asbestos exposure can result in the development of deadly cancers, particularly Mesothelioma.
  • Mesothelioma has a latency period of 20 to 50 years after the first exposure to asbestos. It is estimated that there will be about 250,000 cases of Mesothelioma before 2020.
  • There are currently about 3000 new cases of Mesothelioma diagnosed per year, mostly in men over the age of 40.
  • About 4,000 People die each year from Mesothelioma. During the 20th century, some 30 million tons of asbestos were used in industrial sites, homes, schools, shipyards and commercial buildings in the U. S.
  • More than 700,000 people have filed claims against more than 6,000 Asbestos companies.
  • These same companies knew of the dangers for many years before ever warning the public of those risks. It is thought that around eight million people in the United States have been exposed to asbestos over the past half a century, and many more cases - are expected to be reported in the next 25 years.
