More About Malignant Mesothelioma
Malignant mesothelioma is a rare, deadly form of cancer that is caused by exposure to asbestos. The most common form of the disease is pleural mesothelioma, which affects the lining surrounding the lungs. Other forms of the disease include pericardial mesothelioma, which affects the lining of the heart, and peritoneal mesothelioma, which affects the abdomen. Once a diagnosis of mesothelioma is made, the prognosis is usually not good; mesothelioma life expectancy is typically less than one year.
Patients diagnosed with mesothelioma often were exposed to asbestos in their workplace sometime in the past, often decades prior to their diagnosis. Often, the employers knew about the asbestos exposure and its potential to cause harm but did not act to protect their employees. In such cases, the employer is legally liable for the patient's medical expenses, lost wages as well as compensatory damages for pain and suffering. Therefore, it is advisable to consult with an attorney as soon as possible following a diagnosis of mesothelioma.
