Asbestos has been used for decades because it makes a great insulator and it is cost-effective. Asbestos exposure was never a problem for many years because people just assumed it was safe. However, things changed when people started to die mysteriously of a lung cancer called mesothelioma, and the connection was made when experts found that all these individuals had something in common – they all were in close contact one way or another to asbestos, the once-harmless compound. Asbestos is now known to cause aggressive cancers for which there are often no cures. As a result, the surviving family members are now able to seek legal reprieve in the form of a wrongful death claim after losing someone they love to mesothelioma on account of asbestos exposure.

How Does Asbestos Cause Cancer?
While asbestos is a naturally occurring fiber, it has been shown to cause cancer by killing cells when inhaled, as well as causing mutations in these cells by making the body release a protein known as HMGB1 which then triggers an inflammatory cascade which then primes the body for cancer by making it release mutagens and other factors known to promote the growth of tumors. Therefore, prolonged exposure to fine, airborne asbestos fiber eventually leads to the formation of tumors in one’s lungs.
Filing a Wrongful Death Claim due to Asbestos-Related Mesothelioma
Individuals living with asbestos-related mesothelioma may not want to file a lawsuit because they simply may not have the emotional energy to do so, or they may be wary and skeptical of the legal process. Because of mesothelioma’s aggressive nature, they may pass away before getting the justice they deserve. You as their loved one must pick up the reins and seek out compensation and justice in order to right a historical wrong, which is the obscuring of facts regarding the safety of asbestos. You may be able to recover things like lost wages, cost of medical care, pain and suffering, funeral costs, loss of projected income and so much more.
