Wisconsin mesothelioma lung cancer cases

Wisconsin mesothelioma lung cancer cases

Over the past 15 years, our firm has helped recover over $25,000,000 for asbestos related Wisconsin mesothelioma lung cancer cases.  Mesothelioma is a horrid disease that results from chronic inhalation and exposure to asbestos.  Mesothelioma is a lung cancer of the thin membranes lining the abdomen and internal organs (cancer of the mesothelium).  Cells of the mesothelium become abnormal and divide without control or order.

Asbestos is a known human carcinogen or cancer-causing agent.  In Wisconsin, asbestos has been used in building materials, paper products and plastics.   Asbestos is also found in Wisconsin in asbestos-cements, friction products, textiles, packings and gaskets and asbestos-reinforced plastics.  As a result, we have participated in many Wisconsin mesothelioma lung cancer cases.

Mesothelioma has caused the death of many Wisconsin residents.  Nationwide, more than 250,000 individuals are known to have died from mesothelioma.  Wisconsin asbestos sites include breweries, mills, power plants, utility operations, nuclear energy plants, utility construction facilities, WE a/k/a WEPCO a/k/a Wisconsin Energies plants, hospitals, universities (University of Wisconsin) and other colleges, and locations.  Mesothelioma is typically caused at indoor facilities where asbestos was released into the air.

Mesothelioma symptoms may not appear until 30 to 50 years after exposure to asbestos.  Shortness of breath and pain in the chest due to an accumulation of fluid in the pleura are often symptoms of pleural mesothelioma.  Treatment for mesothelioma depends on the location of the cancer, the stage of the disease and patient’s age and general health.  Standard options include surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy.
