What Causes Mesothelioma?
Mesothelioma occurs mostly due to exposure to asbestos, a group of minerals made of microscopic fibers. When these fibers find their way into the human body system, usually through inhalation, they sit in the abdomen, lungs, or heart, leading to mesothelioma.
What Are the Different Types of Mesothelioma?
The different types of mesothelioma are categorized based on the affected area of the body. These include:
- pleural mesothelioma (lungs) is the most common type;
- peritoneal mesothelioma (abdomen);
- pericardial mesothelioma (heart); and
- testicular mesothelioma, which is extremely rare.
Each type of mesothelioma presents unique symptoms and requires specific, patient-focused treatment approaches.
What Are the Different Types of Treatments for Mesothelioma?
Speaking of treatment, it all depends on the type, stage of the disease, and the patient’s overall health. Common treatments include surgery to extract the tumor, chemotherapy to eliminate cancer cells, and radiation therapy to target cancerous areas.
What Are the Legal Grounds for Filing a Mesothelioma Lawsuit?
These cases are usually filed on the grounds of negligence, product liability, or wrongful death (or even a combination of both). Here’s a quick breakdown of each claim:
Negligence, in this case, involves proving that the defendant failed to protect you from or warn you about asbestos exposure.
Product liability, on the other hand, holds manufacturers or sellers responsible for selling asbestos-containing products.
Lastly, wrongful death claims are filed by family members if a loved one dies from mesothelioma.
Against Whom Do I File a Claim?
You may file a claim against various parties depending on your exposure history. Potential defendants include but are not limited to the following:
- employers who did not provide adequate safety measures;
- manufacturers of asbestos-containing products;
- contractors or companies responsible for asbestos exposure; and
- asbestos trust funds set up by bankrupt companies.
A mesothelioma attorney from our team can help identify the appropriate parties to file your claim against.
