Mesothelioma Is A Dangerous Illness

Mesothelioma is a rare but deadly type of cancer that is caused primarily due to exposure to asbestos. Those most at risk of developing mesothelioma include:

  • Workers who produced asbestos-related products
  • Family members of those who worked with these products (due to exposure from asbestos on their clothing)
  • Those living in areas with asbestos products or construction materials

Asbestos was heavily used in the US until the 1970s, though its use continued until the 1990s. Many businesses and homes still contain asbestos. Some of the most common products that used asbestos included:

  • Floor tiles
  • Ceiling tiles
  • Roofing products
  • Insulation
  • Pipe covering
  • Gaskets
  • And more

Mesothelioma has a long latency period, meaning that people are not usually diagnosed until years after they have been exposed to asbestos. Mesothelioma is not curable, but it can be treated with chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. Early detection of mesothelioma can increase a person’s lifespan and quality of life after a diagnosis.

How Has Mesothelioma Affected Freeport?

Nassau County has been greatly affected by mesothelioma. From 1999 to 2013, there were an estimated 1,135 asbestos-related deaths in the county. The Nassau County rate of asbestos-related deaths per 100,000 people is 5.6.

While there are no officially listed job site locations for asbestos exposure, we know that asbestos products were used here for decades. Asbestos was and continues to be used throughout the city of Freeport and residents face possible exposure on a daily basis.

The Process Can Be Confusing Let an Experienced Mesothelioma Lawyer in Freeport Guide You

While mesothelioma victims and their families (in the case of wrongful death) are generally entitled to compensation for what has happened, there are several routes to getting that coverage. At the Williams Law Firm, we will use the facts of your case to determine whether the best path will be:

  • Through settlements or a verdict from a personal injury lawsuit
  • Through a bankruptcy trust fund
  • Through veterans benefits
