Cincinnati Asbestos Attorney and Mesothelioma Lawyer reviewing Electrician Asbestos exposure and workplace mesothelioma cancer claims.
When a loved one falls ill from toxic asbestos exposure, and develops a deadly disease, the entire family suffers, and may experience great emotional and financial hardship as a result of outstanding medical expenses and a permanent loss of wages. This is the case for thousands of Americans each year who lose a family member to mesothelioma and other asbestos-related illnesses.
According to the American Cancer Society, each year in the United States around 3,000 new cases of mesothelioma are diagnosed. These new cancer cases cause an immense amount of pain and suffering, and even though asbestos is not as widely used in American industry as it once was, new cancer cases continue to surface because the latency period of toxic asbestos fibers in the lungs causing cancer can be as long as 40 years.
Even today, the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that more than 100,000 people die each year from mesothelioma and other asbestos-related disease, resulting from past occupational exposures. Evidence suggests there is no safe level of asbestos exposure.
Family members who have suffered along with the asbestos victim may be entitled to compensation and may have a rightful claim against an employer for negligence and failing to provide a safe work environment for injured employees.
