Being diagnosed with mesothelioma is devastating for multiple reasons. It is an incurable form of cancer that is caused by being directly exposed to asbestos. Most people are diagnosed with mesothelioma once the disease has progressed into later stages. It is uncomfortable to say the least, causing fatigue, breathing problems and difficulty eating.
There are cases involving patients who are suing their previous employer for not providing a safe and healthy working environment. Joel Rosenberg and his wife Sharon, are suing Alpha Wire Company. They are claiming that Mr. Rosenberg was exposed to asbestos whiling working as an electrician as well as when cutting and splicing wires that were insulated with asbestos. He claims that it was this exposure that caused him to be diagnosed with mesothelioma in April of 2006.
Mr. Rosenburg passed away last month after fighting this disease as long as he was able. His videotaped testimony will be used when this case goes to trial. This lawsuit is being continued by his widow, Sharon Rosenburg.
