Washington State Court of Appeals Rules on Secondary Mesothelioma Exposure

Mesothelioma, a cancer of the chest lining, is caused by exposure to asbestos. It can take as long as 40 years to manifest itself. However, once diagnosed, mesothelioma patients typically have only months to live.

It has been found that secondary exposure to asbestos can cause mesothelioma. A ruling by a Washington State Court of Appeals allows victims of secondary asbestos exposure living in the same home to make a claim for their asbestos related diseases such as asbestos cancer, lung cancer, and mesothelioma.

Lawrence Rochon was working for 49 years in an work area where he was exposed to asbestos. His wife Adline used to wash his work clothes everyday. She got exposed to this secondary asbestos and contacted mesothelioma, and eventually died.
