Welcome to MesoAuthority.com - Your Mesothelioma and Asbestos Resource Center
Mesothelioma is a deadly disease that has affected thousands of this country’s most dedicated workers and veterans over the past half century and devastated families that have sacrificed loved ones to help defend and build our nation. If you or someone you love has been affected by Mesothelioma it is important that you know your legal rights.
Mesothelioma is a rare cancer that attacks the linings of the body’s internal organs. It has an unusually long latency period of 15 years or more in most cases and, unfortunately, no known cure. Researchers have linked Mesothelioma to exposure to the substance asbestos. Companies that caused injury or death by using or producing asbestos are liable to those affected.

Asbestos exposure became a national epidemic in the United States over the past 50 years although its’ use in products and buildings was stopped in the 1970’s. Millions of people were likely exposed to the deadly substance through their employment or service working with and around products that contained asbestos. Still more people have been put at risk by the use of asbestos in building materials where they live, work or play.
Research has shown that the companies who produced asbestos or used it in their products knew of the dangers of the substance for decades before they stopped making, selling or using it. What’s worse, they only stopped doing so after intense government and public pressure.
As is often the case with dangerous products, large corporations put profits before the health of their customers and the public by weighing the amount they would stand to lose by stopping production versus the amount it would cost them to defend allegations of health problems.

Mesothelioma Symptoms & Treatment
Exposure to the dangerous substance asbestos can impair lung function through a disease known as asbestosis or put you at risk for the deadly disease Mesothelioma, which is a rare form of cancer which attacks the lining of the lungs and the body’s organs.
The symptoms of Mesothelioma may take 15 years or more to develop after you have been exposed to the substance and can harm you even if you were exposed for only a year or so. Unfortunately many of our country’s brave workers worked with or around the material for decades without knowing its dangers.
The symptoms or asbestosis and Mesothelioma include significant chest pain, shortness of breath and weight loss. Approximately half of those who develop Mesothelioma will encounter a spread of the disease to tumors in other areas of the body. Often the tumors remain in the chest cavity.
The chance of fighting Mesothelioma depends on the size and location of the cancer tumors, whether they have spread and how far, and how the disease responds to treatment. Mesothelioma is usually treated with surgery to remove the cancer, radiation therapy, chemotherapy or some combination of these therapies.
Mesothelioma Lawsuit verdict awards $32 million to asbestos victimA measure of justice for mesothelioma victims and their families; who have suffered needlessly due to asbestos continuing to be used long after its dangers were recognized was the catalyst for a 32 million dollar verdict that was obtained in the case of Dummit v.
