What Is Mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma is a deadly form of cancer that is caused by exposure to asbestos. In the US, there are approximately 3,000 new mesothelioma cases diagnosed each year, many of them in New York. One of the reasons this cancer is so dangerous is its long latency period. Most people are not diagnosed until decades after they have been exposed to asbestos. There is no cure for mesothelioma, though early detection can help increase a persona quality of life and life expectancy after diagnosis.

Asbestos was heavily used in the US up until the late 1970s, though its use continued into the 1990s. Once known as the “magic mineral” due to its versatility, heat resistance, and low cost, asbestos is a cancer-causing carcinogen. Once inhaled or ingested, asbestos fibers can embed themselves in the body and cause malignant cell growth.

Binghamton Has Been Affected

Broome County residents have become ill with mesothelioma over the last few decades. There were an estimated 152 deaths due to asbestos-related exposure here from 1999 to 2013. The rate of deaths in this country from asbestos-related illnesses is 5 deaths per 100,000 people.

As of right now, the following locations in Binghamton have been identified as asbestos exposure sites:

  • BUSSE SCHOOL
  • FIRST CITY NATIONAL BANK

These are certainly not the only places in Binghamton where asbestos was used or continues to be used. Exposure has and will happen at other locations in and around the city.

If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you need to know that there are several routes available for compensation. At the Williams Law Firm, we will use the facts of your case to determine whether we will pursue coverage through:

  • A personal injury settlement or verdict
  • Workers’ compensation claim
  • Veterans benefits
  • Through a mesothelioma (bankruptcy) trust
