    Helpful Definition for: Lawyers - Mesothelioma


    Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that is usually caused by exposure to asbestos. Most people, in Highland Mills, who have developed mesothelioma have worked within industries which involved inhaling asbestos and construction particles, or were otherwise exposed to asbestos dust such as workers who helped in the aftermath of the collapse of the World Trade Center on September 11th, 2001.

    Mesothelioma usually develops years after actual exposure. Victims are commonly diagnosed with mesothelioma when they show damage to the peritoneal lining of the lungs or abdomen. Asbestos was used in the United States from early 1930 to mid 1970. More than 733,000 buildings in the United States, including a good number of those within the borders of New York, are said to still contain asbestos.

    Mesothelioma litigation is widespread throughout the Unites States due to large financial settlements, as well as the obvious liability and personal injury involved. Court actions are common in which victims seek compensation for his or her expenses. Lawyers within Highland Mills, New York fight specifically for the rights of those effected from this disease.
