Richmond Mesothelioma Attorney
Mesothelioma is an unusually aggressive form of cancer that has been closely linked with exposure to asbestos. It also has some fairly unique characteristics. For example, it may take anywhere from 20-50 years for mesothelioma to reach an accurately diagnosable stage. Then, the median life expectancy is approximately 8 months from the date of diagnosis. Although that is certainly grim news to receive, it is important remember that a rigorous medical regimen and access to the best treatments available can help you survive years beyond the projected course.
These treatments are prohibitively expensive for most families, but a successful legal action may gain you the financial compensation that you need to cover the costs of your care.
