Understanding Mesothelioma Cases

Asbestos was widely used in the US because of its low cost, heat resistance, and bonding qualities and strength. It was commonly used in insulation, gaskets and packing, as well as components in a wide variety of equipment and building material. Exposure to asbestos dust was common for workers in Rochester as well as their family members due to second-hand exposure from work clothing brought home.

Mesothelioma takes years to develop. Those exposed to asbestos may not show any signs and symptoms of mesothelioma for up to 30 to 35 years. Mesothelioma is the result of cell mutation that caused malignant cell growth.

Each year, around 3,000 people are diagnosed with mesothelioma. While there is no cure for the disease, some treatments include surgery to remove cancerous tumors, chemotherapy, and radiation treatment.

Rochester Has Been Affected By Mesothelioma

Monroe County has been affected by mesothelioma. There were 657 asbestos-related deaths in the county from 1999 to 2013. The incidence rate of asbestos-related deaths per 100,000 people is 5.9.

In Rochester, the following locations are the known asbestos-related sites:

  • ODEN BACH SHIPYARD

These are certainly not the only asbestos exposure locations in Rochester, just the ones that are known. Speak with your attorney about your particular case so an investigation can be conducted on a specific location.
