Mesothelioma is a type of cancer that affects many vital organs of the human body, particularly the lungs. According to the American Cancer society, about 3,000 new cases of mesothelioma are diagnosed each year. Most cases involve workers who have had long-term exposure to the carcinogen, asbestos. The most common settings that asbestos exposure can occur are ship construction and repair, factories, construction sites and automotive construction and repair. Asbestos cases also derive from situations in which a person was living or working for an extended period of time in an older building that was infested with asbestos. Unfortunately, secondary exposure—or “Shaker Cases”—are also common in Louisiana. Secondary exposure occurs when a family member is indirectly exposed to asbestos through a loved one who brings home asbestos in their clothing, skin or hair.
Manufacturers, employers and insurance companies often deny liability in mesothelioma cases by arguing the uncertainty of where the asbestos exposure may have occurred. Since these companies aggressively defend their case, you will also require an aggressive advocate to tell your story and prosecute your case.
