Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Former Tennessee senator Albright afflicted with mesothelioma

Former Tennessee legislator, senator Ray Albright, is expected to live only for a couple more months after being informed that he has mesothelioma, a rare form of lung cancer associated with asbestos that he inhaled from his work 40 years ago, a November 16 article for News Channel 9 reported.

The former senator, in his younger years, worked as a steel cutter for Combustion Engineering. Albright narrated that heavy dust particles would envelop his workplace while he or his coworkers were using a band saw to make boiler covers and he was not aware that the dust contained asbestos. Hundreds of former workers of Combustion, including Albright, have filed a lawsuit against their employer and other parties whom they think were liable for their asbestos exposure. Albright told reports that his doctor told him that he might live for about six months.

Unfortunately, mesothelioma cancer currently has no known cure and people who have been diagnosed with the disease often survive for only a couple of months. If you think you have been exposed to asbestos, working with a skilled lawyer is important for you to possibly get compensation.
