Mesothelioma, an aggressive cancer that can affect vital organs—specifically your lungs, is most commonly caused by exposure to asbestos or carcinogens. According to the American Cancer society, about 3,000 new cases of mesothelioma are diagnosed each year. This rare but serious cancer mostly afflicts workers of an industry in which they inhaled asbestos particles and were exposed over a period of time.
Since government regulations concerning asbestos didn’t come into effect until the late 1970s, asbestos exposure in the workplace is still a prevalent risk. Mesothelioma takes approximately twenty years to develop, therefore, you may not realize how much your past work experience exposed you to asbestos and similar dangerous working conditions If you’ve determined that a past employer put you at risk to asbestos exposure, it’s important to hold them accountable.
