Mesothelioma is a rare but serious form of cancer that is usually caused by exposure to asbestos. Here in Kentucky mesothelioma has been diagnosed in a variety of work related illnesses. Individuals who worked in certain industrial settings (such as oil refinery workers, power plant workers, ship builders, insulators, construction workers and others) are especially at risk.
Although asbestos was banned decades ago, individuals who were once exposed are now finding out about their asbestos-related diseases including mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis. It can take 20 to 30 years after exposure for symptoms of mesothelioma to appear.
If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, asbestos-related lung cancer or asbestosis, you may have a claim against an employer, property owner or manufacturer if you were exposed to asbestos at work. The law firm of Hargadon, Lenihan & Herrington helps individuals who have been diagnosed with any of these diseases, helping to recover compensation to cover the many expenses associated with these diseases.

Remember: Even if you were exposed to asbestos years ago, symptoms of mesothelioma may only begin to appear today. It is important to seek medical treatment and diagnosis of your condition. After that, you should talk to a lawyer about pursuing a mesothelioma lawsuit or asbestosis injury claim.
