Mesothelioma Legal Issues

Of the thousands of lawsuits plaguing the asbestos industry, only a small portion involve victims of Mesothelioma.  According to a study by the RAND Corporation, the average legal award related to a Mesothelioma case was around $6 Million.  Cases settled out of court averaged a smaller $1 Million.  Congress has tried for several years to pass legislation helping both the victims and the asbestos industry and banning asbestos use but so far it has not become law.  Most European countries have already passed a ban on asbestos.

Despite the time it takes from exposure to disease manifestation, today it is generally accepted that Mesothelioma results almost entirely from asbestos fiber exposure.  Symptoms of the disease begin to appear only twenty to forty years after initial exposure.  Once diagnosed, however, life expectancy is just a few years.  There is no consensus as to the amount of exposure required to result in contracting the disease.

Mesothelioma symptoms are similar to some other diseases.  Specifically, it is a malignant tumor occurring in the peritoneum or pleura.  Another common disease of asbestos fiber exposure is Asbestosis. Asbestosis is a fibrosis of the lungs.  Lung cancer itself can occur from asbestos fiber exposure or from many other causes such as cigarette smoke.
