Getting help when asbestos exposure causes serious illness

Californians have the right to work in a safe environment. However, many employees have suffered from mesothelioma - a form of cancer that typically occurs in the lungs and stomach lining. Mesothelioma is caused by exposure to asbestos, which was commonly used in the construction and shipbuilding industries in the past. It was also used in manufacturing and, therefore, was commonly found in factories. It is believed that many employers knew about the dangers of asbestos but did not warn their employees, which is why many victims have sued and won.

Mesothelioma is a common workplace illness that has claimed the lives of many workers. It can be hard to trace the source of mesothelioma because it presents itself many years after the exposure. It's a serious disease that, sadly, often leads to death.

Cancer treatments can be very costly, so pursuing legal action can help you receive the compensation you need to manage your disease. If the mesothelioma was caused by an employer or other third party, there are two legal avenues you can take to help get a fair settlement. You can pursue a lawsuit as a workers' compensation case or a personal injury case. In some instances, you may be able to pursue both paths.
