Mesothelioma is a preventable form of cancer caused by the negligence of asbestos manufacturers and other companies that willfully expose you to the hazard. If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, obtaining the right treatment can improve your prognosis. Lake Tindall, LLP helps clients recover the compensation they need to pursue essential medical treatment.
Mesothelioma is a rare but aggressive form of cancer that is often incurable and terminal. Unlike many other types of cancers, mesothelioma has been directly linked to known environmental factors. Because mesothelioma has a latency period of 10 to 40 years, you may not develop the aggressive disease until decades after your exposure to the poisonous substance. You are at an increased risk of contracting mesothelioma if:

The primary cause of mesothelioma is asbestos exposure. If you or a loved one even briefly worked in certain industries that widely used asbestos, you are more likely to develop this serious medical condition. High-risk industries include:
No matter what industry you were working in, you may have rights under the law.
