Mesothelioma and Asbestos

According to a recent report by the World Health Organization, exposure to asbestos fibers at the workplace is one of the leading causes of occupational disease worldwide.

Mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer affecting the lining of the lungs (the “pleura”), the abdomen (the “peritoneum”), or the heart (the “pericardium”), is a disease caused by asbestos exposure. It is estimated that approximately 3,000 cases of mesothelioma are diagnosed in the United States each year. Because the latency period (the period of time between exposure to asbestos and the development of mesothelioma) is long, people who were exposed to asbestos even decades ago are currently developing the disease.

Baron & Budd has been protecting the rights of people with mesothelioma for nearly 30 years. In these pages, you will find information about the medical aspects of this disease, as well as important information about the legal rights of asbestos victims and how Baron & Budd can help you seek the compensation you deserve.

We also invite you to visit Baron & Budd's special website devoted to mesothelioma at to learn more about the symptoms, diagnosis, treatment options, and resources for dealing with the cancer mesothelioma.
