An estimated 20 million people in the United States are at risk of developing a type of cancer called mesothelioma at some point in their lives. Approximately 80 percent of mesothelioma cases can be linked to asbestos exposure. Asbestos is an undetectable group of minerals that is toxic to humans. As more information about the link is coming forward, more victims are accusing those responsible for exposing them to the poisonous element for putting their lives at risk.

Mesothelioma is a rare cancer that attacks the mesothelium. This is a thin lining found on several of the body’s internal organs. Mesothelioma develops where the lining is present which may include the lungs, abdomen, or heart. According to the Center for Disease Control, about 2,400 to 2,800 individuals are diagnosed with mesothelioma in the United States each year. Mesothelioma has been linked to asbestos exposure and has been deemed incurable.
As stated in a previous blog post, those who have been exposed to asbestos as part of their job or everyday life are more at risk for developing mesothelioma. The microscopic airborne particles of asbestos can cause variation in the cells which results in mesothelioma. Unfortunately, the asbestos particles remain in the body long after being inhaled. Therefore, it may take several years after the initial exposure for the cancer to grow and become evident. Even very brief contact with asbestos has been found to cause mesothelioma.
If you have been exposed to asbestos in the Utica, NY or surrounding areas and have been diagnosed with any illness listed above, you may be entitled to compensation.
