What Do I Do After A Mesothelioma Diagnosis?

After diagnosis, it is important to understand your treatment options. Your doctor or oncologist will provide you with information on treatments that are available to you.

It is also important to know about your legal rights. If you have mesothelioma or any other asbestos-related disease, you were most likely exposed to asbestos.

Over several decades, various manufacturers of asbestos and asbestos-containing products (such as insulation) knew that their products were hazardous to human health. However, they made a business decision to value profits over the health and safety of people using their products. Mesothelioma victims and their loved ones are entitled to compensation for the harm they suffered as a result of manufacturers’ greed and negligence. Financial recovery can help you address the many expenses that go along with a mesothelioma diagnosis and provide monetary damages for your pain and your suffering.

According to the National Cancer Institute, approximately 3,000 cases of malignant mesothelioma are being reported in the United States yearly, and the incidence appears to be increasing. The disease is three times more common in men than in women. In men, the occurrence of mesothelioma is 10 times higher in men between the ages of 60 and 70 than in men between the ages of 30 and 40. Occupational exposure to asbestos over the past 50 years in the United States is calculated to have occurred in approximately 8 million people, and up to 300,000 new cases are expected to occur by the year 2030.
