Mesothelioma Incidents

Asbestos was commonly used in home and office construction for the first three quarters of the 20th century. Many buildings still standing today may contain asbestos, and it may even be in your own home.

Types of Mesothelioma Cases in Stafford Township, New Jersey

Mesothelioma can affect the lungs, heart, peritoneum, and testicles. Each distinct type has different symptoms, frequency rates, and chances of recovery. Below is some information about these four types of mesothelioma.

Testicular Mesothelioma

Testicular mesothelioma is the most infrequently diagnosed form of mesothelioma. It is extremely difficult to recognize testicular mesothelioma and is generally only discovered when surgery is already being performed to treat other conditions.

Pericardial Mesothelioma

This form of mesothelioma affects the lining around the heart, known as the pericardium. It is one of the least common forms of mesothelioma, affecting only one percent of patients who are diagnosed with mesothelioma.

Peritoneal Mesothelioma

Peritoneal mesothelioma affects the thin cell walls that surround the abdominal cavity, known as the peritoneum.

Pleural Mesothelioma

Pleural mesothelioma is the most common form of this type of cancer affecting the lining of the lungs, known as the pleura. Early detection of pleural mesothelioma has a significant impact on a person’s prognosis.

Individuals who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma are often entitled to significant compensation. For this reason, it is important for victims to retain an attorney familiar with representing mesothelioma patients. Our attorneys have over four decades of experience helping people who have been injured by the negligence of others recover for their losses.

Investigating Mesothelioma Claims Requires Resources

In order to recover compensation, a mesothelioma sufferer must establish that he or she was subjected to prolonged asbestos exposure at some point. This can be extremely difficult in many instances because the exposure could have taken place decades prior. In addition, sometimes it turns out that the party responsible for the asbestos exposure has gone out of business or been sold to another entity. As a result, it is highly advisable for anyone who believes he or she has a legal claim based on asbestos exposure to retain an attorney familiar with representing individuals with mesothelioma.

An attorney is only one of many professionals and other parties that play an important role in mesothelioma claims. Your doctor’s diagnosis establishing that you have mesothelioma and his or her prognosis of your situation can have a substantial impact on your financial recovery. In addition, it is important to make sure that you receive the proper treatment in order to improve your quality of life while living with mesothelioma.

Another important piece of evidence in mesothelioma litigation is documentation of asbestos exposure. This type of evidence could be provided by an asbestos removal company or employment records. The lawyers of Cohen, Placitella & Roth, P.C. will analyze your case and determine what kinds of evidence would best support your claim. With our considerable resources, we are able to investigate your claim and present your case in such a way as to maximize any settlement or award that you receive.
