What Is Mesothelioma?

The vast majority of mesothelioma cases arise from exposure to asbestos. Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that often shares mines with talc. Manufacturers widely relied on asbestos in the early 1900s for insulation, drywall, automotive parts and naval endeavors. Unfortunately, researchers later found that even small amounts of asbestos breathed into the body could lead to the development of mesothelioma and other serious illnesses later in life.

Mesothelioma is often terminal. Its symptoms include shortness of breath, painful cough, fever, lumps under the skin of the chest, fatigue and unexplained weight loss. Patients can develop mesothelioma in the lining of the lungs, heart, abdomen or other organs. It generally takes at least 10 years for mesothelioma to appear after the victim’s exposure to asbestos. Many mesothelioma victims have the ability to recover financial compensation from one or multiple parties for the initial asbestos exposure.

Lakewood Asbestos Exposure Sites

Asbestos exposure has led to thousands of related illnesses and deaths throughout New Jersey. From 1999 to 2017, the state recorded 11,367 asbestos-related fatalities. Ocean County, NJ alone had 1,190 deaths – more than any other county in the state. Ocean County had an average of 62 asbestos-related deaths per year. Two places in Ocean County with measurable levels of asbestos are the Point Pleasant Hospital and St. Joseph’s Church in Toms River. Thousands of sites exist throughout the state, however, where victims could face harmful asbestos exposure and develop related illnesses.

Compensation for Mesothelioma Victims

A legal claim regarding mesothelioma could lead to financial compensation for you or your family members. An asbestos-related personal injury claim in New Jersey seeks to hold a party responsible for the initial exposure to asbestos, even if it was decades prior. Although many entities have gone out of business or bankrupt since exposing their employees or visitors to asbestos, you might still be eligible for recovery through one of the national mesothelioma funds and should speak with a Lakewood mesothelioma lawyer as soon as possible. A successful case in Lakewood could lead to financial recovery for your physical pain, emotional distress, medical costs, past and future lost wages, and more. Many mesothelioma cases end in $1 million or more in financial compensation.
