Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Women files asbestos suit after death of brother

A West Virginia woman has filed a mesothelioma suit against 65 companies after the death of her brother from mesothelioma.

The woman is claiming that her brother’s death was caused by working with asbestos-laden products that were made or used by the defendant companies. Her brother was diagnosed with mesothelioma on February 22 and died on March 5. He worked for Amco Steel from 1965 to 1986 as a rigger.

Exposure to asbestos is the primary cause of mesothelioma, a rare and aggressive form of cancer. The disease can lay dormant for up to 50 years before an indidvidual begins to feel symptoms.

Mesothelioma is an aggressive cancer that takes the lives of 3,000 Americans a year. Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the victim.
