Malignant mesothelioma is a fatal cancer that can affect the tissue of the heart, lungs and/or abdomen. For individuals and their families, a diagnosis of mesothelioma is devastating. Mesothelioma is a painful disease that is often caused through the inhalation of asbestos mineral fibers.

Boston Asbestos Litigation Attorneys

The only known cause of the condition of mesothelioma is through exposure to the naturally occurring mineral of asbestos. Approximately 50 percent of confirmed mesothelioma cases have been directly linked with asbestos exposure.

Asbestos is a carcinogenic mineral that has been used for a variety of purposes across Massachusetts and the United States in insulation, flooring tiles and many other industrial and consumer products. Over the last century, many people have been exposed to some form of asbestos in the workplace. The inhalation of fibrous asbestos particles is a serious health hazard that can cause a number of problems, including malignant mesothelioma.

Asbestos is now a regulated material in the United States, but the companies who used asbestos in their products - many of whom were aware of the potential health risks - should be held accountable for compensation to those who are now left to deal with the aftermath.
