What is Mesothelioma?

Malignant mesothelioma is a type of cancer that occurs in the thin layer of tissue that covers the majority of your internal organs (mesothelium).

Mesothelioma is an aggressive and deadly form of cancer. Mesothelioma treatments are available, but for many people with mesothelioma, a cure isn’t possible.

Doctors divide mesothelioma into different types based on what part of the mesothelium is affected. Mesothelioma most often affects the tissue that surrounds the lungs (pleura). This type is called pleural mesothelioma. Other, rarer types of mesothelioma affect tissue in the abdomen (peritoneal mesothelioma), around the heart and around the testicles.

Do I Have to Have Mesothelioma or Cancer to Get Compensation?

Victims of asbestos exposure do not have to have mesothelioma or cancer in order to receive compensation for the time they spent working with this toxic material. Our attorneys help get compensation for individuals who have been diagnosed with non-cancerous asbestosis. If you have difficulty breathing, a persistent cough, or shortness of breath after working for a railroad company, we want to hear from you.

Asbestos Trust Claims

Asbestos litigation has been ongoing since the late 1970s. As a result, many of the companies that manufactured and sold asbestos-containing materials have filed for bankruptcy under a special provision of the United States Bankruptcy Code.

This form of bankruptcy is virtually unique to asbestos companies and is far different from the traditional form of bankruptcy where there is a liquidation of assets and the company goes out of business. Instead, many asbestos companies have been allowed to shed their liabilities by forming asbestos bankruptcy trusts to provide payments for all present and future asbestos injury claims. As a result, contrary to popular news reports, many of the companies that manufactured asbestos containing products are still in business and their non-asbestos products can still be found on the shelves of local hardware stores.

There is currently more than $30 billion dollars sitting in bankruptcy trusts to compensate injured workers and their families who were exposed to asbestos. The payouts from these trusts are based on a multiple factors such as historic verdict and settlement values, disease and injury classifications, and the individual workers exposure history. Many times these payments represent only a fraction of past verdicts and settlements; however, for workers who qualify, these payments can constitute a significant form of compensation.
