Lewiston Mesothelioma Lawyer
Mesothelioma is a tragic illness that affects about 2,000 Americans every year. It is a cancer of the protective lining over the lungs and heart called the mesothelium. So far, medical researchers have only identified one cause: exposure to the toxic mineral asbestos. Asbestos is composed of thin fibers that can break off and be inhaled, causing the development of scar tissue and potentially deadly diseases.
Even though asbestos has been closely regulated since the 1970’s, it continues to be a public safety issue today. The problem is that mesothelioma and other asbestos-related conditions can develop slowly for years or even decades before they begin to show symptoms. Sadly, this means that someone who has not handled asbestos in years can still be at risk.
