Mesothelioma Can Be A Devastating Diagnosis

Each year, approximately 3,000 new mesothelioma cases are diagnosed in the United States. This rare but deadly form of cancer is caused due to long-term exposure to asbestos.

Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that was once dubbed the “magic mineral” due to its versatility, heat resistance, and low cost. Asbestos was commonly used in these products:

  • Insulation
  • Pipe covering
  • Gaskets
  • Asbestos packing
  • Refractory
  • Asbestos bricks
  • Transite boards
  • Joint compound
  • Floor tiles
  • Ceiling tiles
  • Roofing product

Those most at risk of exposure are workers who produced asbestos-related products as well as their family members (through secondary exposure from asbestos brought home on clothing).

Most mesothelioma victims are over the age of 60, as it often takes decades from the time of asbestos exposure to the time symptoms of the disease begin to show. Mesothelioma cannot be cured, but it can be treated with chemotherapy, radiation, or surgery.

How Has Niagara Falls Been Affected?

Niagara County citizens have suffered from mesothelioma particularly badly. From 1999 to 2013, there were an estimated 473 deaths due to asbestos-related exposure in this country. The rate of deaths in this country from asbestos-related illnesses is 15 deaths per 100,000 people. This is the highest rate among any county in the state.

Niagara County and Niagara Falls have a high death rate from asbestos-related illnesses, and our residents have faced exposure from various locations. This has been an industrial area, and asbestos was commonly used here.

We Can Get You Through This Process

If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, or if a loved one has died due to the illness, you may be entitled to various types of compensation.
