When asbestos was thought to be safe it was used in a wide variety of construction and industrial applications. Later, it was found that exposure to asbestos was the cause of mesothelioma, a rare and deadly type of lung cancer.
Because of the widespread usage of asbestos, many people have come into contact with this potentially deadly substance on a regular basis, however those most at risk for developing the disease are the workers who handled the substance in the course of their jobs. Unfortunately for many, the alarm raised by asbestos mesothelioma lawyers weren't heeded until growing evidence of the links between exposure and the deadly lung cancer were uncovered.
Asbestos was finally banned for use in America in the 1970s, but that was only the beginning of the mesothelioma nightmare.
You see, meso cancer remains latent for several decades and those who were exposed as long as 40 years ago are only now showing symptoms of the rare and deadly cancer.
Treatments are available, but typically patients who are diagnosed are at an advanced stage and have only months left to live. Unfortunately, it's an all too common experience for an asbestos lawsuit to be filed on behalf of surviving family, the victim having died.
Further complicating matters is the widespread belief that asbestos manufacturers in the mid-1900s were aware of the dangers of asbestos exposure and kept this information from the public.

Pipefitters, auto mechanics, miners, construction workers and shipbuilders are just a few of the careers that used or may have exposed people to asbestos on a regular basis. The best mesothelioma lawyers know it's not enough to simply be diagnosed with meso lung cancer, they will need to determine where you were exposed for your claim. The exposure point can often be decades past, and your law firm will help pinpoint the most likely cause.
Former military personnel are also at a high risk due to the heavy use of asbestos in the military. Your service record can often reveal when exposure occurred, depending on the navy ships you were assigned, and in what capacity.
In addition, those who worked in oil refineries and power plants may have been exposed to asbestos regularly. Any potential personal injury litigation depends upon linking the cause of your injuries - which can be tricky when it could have happened decades ago.
At the time, no one was aware of the link between asbestos and the disease, but now many people who worked with the carcinogen are contracting this rare form of cancer as a result of their daily exposure.

Modern treatment methods are showing more promise, especially when combined with traditional cancer treatments.
These are some of the common treatment options for mesothelioma patients:
- Gene therapy
- Photodynamic therapy
- Clinical trials
