What Causes Mesothelioma?
Mesothelioma is a debilitating type of lung cancer that is most often caused by asbestos exposure. From the early 1940s through the 1970s, asbestos was used regularly when building homes. This means that many construction workers and other types of employees were routinely exposed to asbestos over the years. These homes may have been silently exposing the owners to asbestos over the years as well. Asbestos was widely used in auto parts and other types of manufacturing as well.
If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma and are unsure whether you were exposed to asbestos in your home or line of work, it may be in your best interests to reach out to an experienced asbestos/mesothelioma attorney for a free consultation.
Who is Liable for Your Asbestos Exposure and Mesothelioma Diagnosis?
Liability in mesothelioma cases means that an entity, usually a company or corporation, is legally responsible for the injuries that resulted from asbestos exposure. Most, but not all, mesothelioma cases come from occupational exposure, coming into contact with asbestos while on the job. Employers and governments have a duty to provide safe working conditions for employees, warn them of dangers and provide safety equipment and training.
In Milwaukee alone, there have been dozens (more likely hundreds) of sites where known asbestos exposure has occurred including:
- AO Smith Corp.
