What Causes Mesothelioma?
Mesothelioma occurs due to asbestos exposure. Some studies have linked mesothelioma with other causes, such as radiation exposure and gene mutations, but asbestos stands as the most common cause.
What Is Asbestos?
Asbestos is a group of minerals made of microscopic fibers. These fibers, when inhaled or ingested, can settle along the lining of the lungs, abdomen, or heart, leading to mesothelioma.
How Can Mesothelioma Affect My Life in the Long Run?
Mesothelioma can lead to long-term effects, such as severe pain, difficulty breathing, and significant impairments in daily activities. Treatment often involves chemotherapy, radiation, or surgery, which can have their own lasting side effects. In addition, the emotional and psychological toll of a mesothelioma diagnosis can also be too much to bear, affecting both patients and their families. We've also seen cases where families sink into debt or generally give up everything they've owned in an attempt to afford treatment for their loved ones.
What's the Point of Taking Legal Action After Being Diagnosed With Mesothelioma?
Legal action can help secure financial compensation to cover medical expenses, lost wages, and other costs associated with the disease. It can also compensate for pain, suffering, diminished quality of life, and other non-economic damages. Furthermore, legal action can hold responsible parties accountable for unsafe practices that led to asbestos exposure, potentially preventing future harm to others.
Who Can I Sue for Asbestos Exposure?
Potential defendants in a mesothelioma lawsuit include:
- Employers who did not provide adequate safety measures.
- Manufacturers of asbestos-containing products.
- Companies responsible for the installation or maintenance of asbestos products.
In some cases, landlords or property owners who failed to ensure a safe environment may also be liable.
Do I Need To Take Further Action if I Filed a Workers' Compensation Claim?
Filing a workers' compensation claim is a good place to start, but it should not be the only action you can take. Workers' compensation typically covers medical expenses and a portion of lost wages but may not address other damages like pain and suffering, emotional distress, diminished quality of life, and more. A separate legal claim against responsible parties can potentially provide a broader range of compensation.
