Top Mesothelioma Lawyer in New York

Oct 11, 2007
The incidence of mesothelioma has increased rapidly in New York for several reasons. One of these is the destruction of the World Trade Center, which released thousands of pounds of asbestos dust into the air. Anyone in the vicinity of the towers when they were destroyed is likely to have breathed some of this in, and is in danger of contracting mesothelioma. Unfortunately this is not he only source of asbestos poisoning, and many buildings that are still inhabited or being demolished are slowly leaking this deadly dust into the air.

So what is mesothelioma? It is a particular type of cancer that develops in the membranes of the lungs, heart and chest cavity. It can lead to inflexibility of the membranes, fluid buildup, internal bleeding and ulcers, but the one outcome of mesothelioma that is certain is death. There is no known cure or even an effective treatment, and all patients who contract this disease die within at least six months. Patients have been known to live to five years, but this is entirely unlikely.

Mesothelioma symptoms can vary, but most are respiratory in nature. They can include - but are not limited to - tightness in the chest, fluid buildup in the lungs or chest cavity, blood in the lung sputum, trouble breathing, fatigue, drowsiness, headaches and nausea. Many of these symptoms can present as a result of other illnesses that are far more common and less severe. The instance of lung cancer related to smoking is as high as 1 in every 1000 people in some states, while mesothelioma affects an average of only four people in every million.

As a result of the extremely small incidence of mesothelioma, diagnosis of this deadly disease is not easy. This is one of the contributing factors towards the high mortality rate for this disease, but a lot of doctors believe that once the asbestos contamination develops into mesothelioma there is nothing that can be done. The cancer is usually metastatic, which means that as soon as it becomes advanced enough it will move. If it starts in the bowel the tumors can reach the size of golf balls before they begin to cause discomfort. This is one of the reasons that mesothelioma diagnosis is so difficult.

Although it is little consolation to those living with mesothelioma you could be awarded a famous "mesothelioma settlement" if it can be proven that you condition is linked to previous exposure. This is a simple task of taking a biopsy from the area, and doctors can normally determine conclusively whether your mesothelioma resulted from asbestos, and possibly even where that asbestos came from! A top mesothelioma lawyer in New York can help you to win a large cash settlement if you have been the victim of asbestos neglect.

A mesothelioma lawsuit does not have to be a long and drawn out affair, and the clear-cut nature of these situations normally means that a mesothelioma attorney can arrange a settlement for you out of court. This can take anywhere from a few weeks to several months, but certain law firms give the highest priority to mesothelioma cases because of the short life expectancy of those living with this disease. They believe that you should be able to enjoy your compensation, and they will make every effort to secure it as soon as possible.
