Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?





Treatment of mesothelioma

People who have been diagnosed with any asbestos-related illnesses like mesothelioma will likely need to undergo some combination of the various treatments available to help improve their condition. Unfortunately, these treatments can be very expensive and involved, making the need for financial compensation imperative for families of loved ones whose conditions are caused by negligent exposure to this dangerous building material.

Because mesothelioma is a very serious diagnosis, patients should look for a highly-skilled doctor when seeking treatment for the cancer. Traditionally, mesothelioma patients are treated with some combination of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation treatment in an effort to remove, eradicate, or suppress the tumors in the lungs. These treatments are invasive and can take a heavy toll on patients, both physically and financially. Additionally, expensive medications are often prescribed in order to treat side effects of the condition. Even with these advanced treatments and excellent hospital care, many patients do not survive mesothelioma, and their families are left to deal with overwhelming medical, hospice, and funeral payments.

When negligent employers allow their employees to be exposed to asbestos in the air or workplace, they should be held financially accountable for all of the costs associated with the condition.

Asbestos may be present in day care centers

Because children undergo extended critical developmental periods, they are at a high risk of developing fatal mesothelioma cancer from exposure to asbestos. When new businesses, such as day care centers, take over old buildings with asbestos and fail to make the necessary renovations, people can unknowingly inhale the dangerous material or carry it home with them in the fabric of their clothes.

While the use of asbestos materials in buildings has been prohibited since the 1980’s, many old infrastructures have undergone minimal renovations that did not address the asbestos before being turned into modern businesses, such as day care centers. Even in buildings where asbestos has been removed from walls and floors, the material may linger in other areas, such as drain pipes. Children who attend these facilities on a regular basis are in danger of coming into direct of indirect contact with asbestos and suffering the consequences.
