This is why we have created a guide for those who have been diagnosed with this deadly disease.
What is mesothelioma, and who can get it?
Malignant mesothelioma is a rare cancer caused by exposure to asbestos, a mineral that is made up of microscopic fibers. Asbestos was widely used throughout the U.S. from the 1940s through the 1970s because of its heat-resistant properties. When products and materials that contain asbestos are disturbed, the fibers are inhaled and can lead to asbestos-related cancers, such as mesothelioma.
Most mesothelioma victims have worked in industries known for high levels of asbestos exposure. Our guide lists high-risk occupations and industries, and it also includes signs and symptoms of mesothelioma.
What can I do if I am diagnosed with mesothelioma?
In this guide, we explain the kind of medical treatments available and what you should do to receive necessary medical care and financial help. Monetary compensation can help you:
- Afford the medical care you need
- Provide for your family
- Compensate you for your losses
How can Kelley & Ferraro help me?
Manufacturers and distributors of products and materials made with asbestos caused your cancer. For decades, the dangers of asbestos were hidden, and workers were needlessly exposed to the deadly fibers while they worked.
