Injury Lawyer Network Launches Mesothelioma Helpline

Written by Auto Accident. Posted in Injury Lawsuit News, Workers Compensation

Mesothelioma is a fatal form of lung cancer from Asbestos. Mesothelioma lawyers are helping families and victims of mesothelioma with a new  helpline monitored by a medical social worker. Families of mesothelioma victims are in crisis and need to know if there are any resources available to them and what their legal rights are. The Mesothelioma Helpline is launching a massive campaign to reach out to states with the largest populations of people harmed by Asbestos.

Families with loved ones with Asbestos related deaths from mesothelioma require support and the legal representation from an experienced mesothelioma lawyer. Asbestos causes toxic exposure.

Mesothelioma is a very serious form of lung cancer from exposure to asbestos.This fatal disease affects  the lining of the lungs and leads to death within months of being diagnosed.  Mesothelioma takes a long time for complications to appear.It has a 20- to 50-year  waiting period, so to speak. This means that your loved one  that  was  exposed to asbestos in the 1960s and 1970s is just now being diagnosed with the disease mesothelioma and showing complications of asbestos related lung cancer.

The disease is just starting to show and it is believed that almost 40,000 cases will begin to appear in key states.
There are certain states with high asbestos  related  lung  cancer deaths.

Although every state in the country has reported cases  of mesothelioma there are certain states that stand out with the highest asbestos related deaths. These states have largest urban industrial centers. According to U.S. government statistics, the states with the highest rates of mesothelioma are: California, Florida, New York, Pennsylvania, Texas, New Jersey, Illinois and Washington. These eight states account for more than half of all mesothelioma deaths in the nation.California, Florida, New York, Pennsylvania, Texas, New Jersey, Illinois and Washington.
Cities include:  Los Angeles, Chicago and Philadelphia.

According to statistical data published by The Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC),
"the number of deaths from mesothelioma during the period of 1999 through 2005 was the highest within the age group ranges of 65 through 74 with a total of 5,268 deaths and 75 through 84 with a total of 6,862 deaths. The median age of death from malignant mesothelioma was 74 years-old during this period. Mortality rates in the older age group ranges may be primarily due to the extensive latency period that may range from 10 to 40 years or more. A person may breathe in asbestos fibers for several decades before the disease finally surfaces and is diagnosed."

"Another reason that the older age group ranges may be more susceptible to malignant mesothelioma diagnoses and death is that the use of asbestos was more commonly used in a wide range of materials and occupations during most of the 1900s in the United States. As the populations that worked in those asbestos-related industries aged, the mortality rates in the older age groups have risen."

Mesothelioma is most often the result of industrial workplace exposure to asbestos. However your employer had an obligation to keep your workplace safe. If you or a family memeber or friend has this deadly disease due to a negligent workplace environement contact our Mesothelioma Helpline today.
