Home / Blog / Compensation for Mesothelioma Victims

Back in the day, asbestos was considered a modern marvel. Due to its incredible resistance to fire, all sorts of products were manufactured with asbestos fibers. If you were standing in a building, sitting in a car, or floating on a boat, you were more than likely within inches of asbestos. And if you inhaled even a single fiber back then, you could develop mesothelioma up to 40 years years later.

Mesothelioma is one of the most deadly forms of cancer and there is no cure. The only known cause of mesothelioma is asbestos fibers, which can have a latency (or exist dormant in your body) for 20 to 40 years. That’s a pretty scary statistic considering how many products, from roofing materials to brake pads, may still contain asbestos to this day. If you’ve been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you could be eligible for compensation from manufacturers.
