Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in the United States. It kills more Americans each year than breast, prostate, and colon cancer combined. Lung Cancer has been linked to asbestos, a toxic mineral often unknowingly handled by people who worked in a wide variety of trades. When a person inhales asbestos, microscopic fibers can become lodged in their lung tissue. Over many years, the fibers can cause enough genetic and cellular damage to cause lung cells to turn cancerous. Asbestos-related lung cancer typically takes between 15 and 35 years to develop from initial exposure to onset of symptoms. Because of this long latency period, most cases diagnosed today were caused by occupational asbestos exposure that occurred decades ago when asbestos use was prevalent.
Some of the most common industries that require employees to handle asbestos are Construction, Oil refineries, Power Plants, Chemical plants, Metal works, Shipyards, Auto mechanics, and Military services or Veterans.
Mesothelioma is another diagnosis of asbestos related lung cancer. The main difference is that pleural mesothelioma develops in the lining of the lungs instead of inside the lung. Pleural mesothelioma and asbestos lung cancer involve similar diagnostic procedures and symptoms, but they differ in physical characteristics and treatment techniques. Asbestos exposure is the only known cause of mesothelioma.
Lung cancer caused by asbestos has the same symptoms, treatment options, and prognoses as other forms of lung cancer. The only difference is that asbestos fibers are to blame instead of other risk factors. The long latency period of asbestos-related diseases means that the health effects will start out mild and get worse over time before they are finally noticed. Symptoms of asbestos lung cancer include, but are not limited to:
According to an international study published in 2020, no substance causes more cases of lung cancer linked to occupation than asbestos. The study found that asbestos is responsible for 37.5% of all occupational lung cancer cases. Lung cancer caused by asbestos is responsible for an estimated 6,000 deaths in the U.S. each year.
People like you are already filing lawsuits. The family of a mechanic from Redding, California, received a $630,000 settlement in 2018 to resolve a wrongful death lawsuit from asbestos-related lung cancer. The surviving family claimed their loved one developed lung cancer as a result of exposure to asbestos brakes, clutches and gaskets. Also, according to a 2019 Mealey’s Litigation Report, the average mesothelioma settlement is between $1 million and $1.5 million.
