Types of Mesothelioma
The Mesothelioma Research Foundation of America estimates that over 30 million people in the U.S. have been exposed to asbestos over the last several decades. Asbestos is the only known cause of mesothelioma (cancer of the lining around the lungs or internal organs) and asbestosis (a debilitating lung disease). The trick of mesothelioma litigation is not the medical connection, but identifying how the person was exposed. This task is more difficult because the symptoms sometimes do not develop until 10, 20 or even 40 years after exposure. While the onset might take a long duration to show itself the disease becomes very progressive once it begins to spread. The common types of mesothelioma recognized by the medical community include:

If the person was exposed to known asbestos-containing materials, we can sue the employer associated with the greatest or most recent exposure and the manufacturers and suppliers of those products. For much of the 20th century, asbestos was widely used in industrial boilers and turbines, building materials and electrical wiring, fireproof coatings and hundreds of products and machines. Those most likely to have experienced heavy or prolonged workplace exposure include:
