Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer only caused by exposure to asbestos. There are approximately 3,200 new cases of mesothelioma diagnosed each year in the United States.
Mesothelioma victims can obtain substantial money compensation for their cancer in a variety of ways, including:
- A civil lawsuit can be filed against asbestos product manufacturers and suppliers. This is known as a products liability action.
- A civil lawsuit can also be filed against oil refineries, steel mills, power plants, and other industrial sites which did not prevent workers from the hazards of asbestos. This is known as a premises liability action.
- Another avenue of recovery is from those asbestos companies who have filed for bankruptcy, and have set up trust funds for asbestos victims.
- Mesothelioma victims may also have the right to file worker’s compensation claims under state law or under the Federal Worker’s Compensation
