Morgan & Morgan

  • Common Symptoms of Mesothelioma

    It typically takes 10 to 50 years after exposure to asbestos for Mesothelioma to form. About 3,000 new mesothelioma diagnoses occur every year.

    Depending on the location of the cancer, it can cause difficulty breathing, low oxygen levels, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, bowel obstruction, heart palpitations, coughing, or chest pain. The average life expectancy upon diagnosis is six to 18 months. Asbestos exposure is the only known cause of Mesothelioma.

  • Products That May Contain Asbestos

    Asbestos can be found in a variety of commonly used products.

    • Tiles: Both flooring and ceiling tiles, along with the adhesive used to lay them down, may contain asbestos.
    • Cement: Because asbestos is lightweight, heat-resistant, and strong, it has been mixed with cement.
    • Textiles: In the past, asbestos has been added to cloth fibers such as blankets, rope, and even firefighting uniforms.
    • Automobile Parts: Asbestos is still used in brake pads and clutches.
    • Roofing Materials: Corrugated sheeting and roofing materials may still contain asbestos.

    While most manufacturers phased out the use of asbestos in products in the 1980s due to burgeoning illness and liability, it remains legal. In 1989, the EPA banned the use of asbestos products, but this decision was overturned by the New Orleans Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.

    Based upon this court decision, only new uses of asbestos were banned, other than those specifically indicated by the court, which included flooring felt, roll board, corrugated, and commercial paper.

  • Potential Issues with Mesothelioma Injury Cases

    Mesothelioma claims in the Bronx are unique compared to other personal injury lawsuits. Since Mesothelioma can take decades after initial exposure to appear, bankrupt or dissolved companies are common problems in these lawsuits. The asbestos trusts provide enough funding to pay out mesothelioma claims even if the company no longer exists or cannot afford to pay.

    Aside from settlement and jury award compensation types, mesothelioma sufferers could also be eligible for compensation through asbestos bankruptcy trust funds, which exist with the sole purpose of reimbursing victims of asbestos exposure even when the company at fault has gone out of business or declared bankruptcy.

    To learn more about these trust funds or to find out if you have a personal injury claim, contact Morgan & Morgan.
