What Is Mesothelioma?
Malignant mesothelioma is a type of cancer that attacks the mesothelium – the protective lining of the lungs, abdomen and heart. The likelihood of having cancer in each area that contains mesothelium varies greatly. Most cases are found in the lung and chest areas with other cases less commonly appearing in the abdominal cavity. Cases in the heart, heart cavity or testicles are significantly rarer.
The only known cause of mesothelioma is exposure to asbestos. Many have experienced asbestos exposure from their work in the construction industry, including contractors, from construction products containing asbestos, and from secondhand exposure to asbestos through contaminated clothing, hair and other possessions.
If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, it is important that you take action immediately and reach out to an Ohio attorney. We understand that this is a difficult time for you and your family. We are happy to answer any questions you have at absolutely no cost or with no obligation.
Tracing mesothelioma back to the workplace where asbestos exposure was likely to have occurred is critical to a successful claim. Often, mesothelioma victims are not able to immediately recall how and when they were exposed to asbestos. The knowledge and experience of McDermott & Hickey, LLC, in tracing back asbestos exposures to their source can mean the difference between being fully compensated for your injury and receiving nothing.
