Mesothelioma: Retirement Doesn’t End the Risk

The risk of developing cancer due to occupational asbestos exposure does not end once you have retired. Unfortunately, asbestos exposure can have adverse effects on your health for many decades beyond the period of initial exposure. Mesothelioma, for example, takes an average of 30 to 50 years to fully develop and begin to show symptoms.

Mesothelioma is a cancer of the lungs that results from the inhalation or ingestion of asbestos fibers. Both men and women of any age can be affected; however, it is more common for men to develop the disease due to the types of jobs that lead to asbestos exposure. These occupations include, but are not limited to:

  • Shipyard workers
  • Railroad workers
  • Welders
  • Miners
  • Sheet metal workers
  • Construction workers
  • Firefighters

According to recent reports, around 2,000 cases of mesothelioma are being recorded each year. Sadly, this number is expected to increase as the workers of the 1940s through 1970s begin to suffer the symptoms associated with mesothelioma.

It is not safe to assume that by removing yourself from the occupational hazard, you are no longer at risk of developing mesothelioma. Any worker who believes there is a chance that they were exposed to asbestos should be examined by a doctor.

Mesothelioma lawyers work to ensure that those diagnosed with the disease due to the negligent actions of former employers receive the compensation that is due to them. You should not be left to struggle with the emotional, financial, and physical hardships of mesothelioma if your asbestos exposure was caused by someone else’s negligence. Contact a mesothelioma lawyer immediately to begin the fight to protect your rights.
