Asbestos is the only known cause of mesothelioma. In almost all cases, someone diagnosed with mesothelioma has the right to file a mesothelioma lawsuit to recover compensation.
Most of the manufacturers of asbestos-containing products had knowledge that asbestos was harmful to workers, including the fact that exposure carried the risk of developing mesothelioma. However, these companies did not warn workers of these dangers or take action to protect them. Their actions have cost thousands of lives.
Mesothelioma can take anywhere from 30 to 40 years to manifest. If a person diagnosed with mesothelioma has died, their spouse, children, or estate has the right to file a mesothelioma lawsuit.
