Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is a form of cancer which is mainly associated with asbestos exposure. The cancer itself normally forms in the lining covering the lung called the pleura (pleural mesothelioma) or in the diaphragm (peritoneal mesothelioma).

Surviving dependents or beneficiaries of the decedent can be entitled to monetary compensation for damages caused due to the death of the victim. Wrongful death can arise from a number of circumstances, including automobile or airplane accidents, occupational accidents or exposure to hazardous substances; criminal behavior; and other instances by a third party.

Drugs

Prescription drugs can have many serious side effects in addition to the medical benefits they provide. Most pharmaceutical companies are multi-national corporations that make billions of dollars per year on the sale of prescription drugs distributed worldwide.

Occupational Disease

Each year American workers by the thousands are exposed to environmental conditions on the job that result in the development of varying occupational diseases. With the industrialization of America and the use of new chemical agents, these types of injuries have increased especially in the railroad industry. Most, if not all of these injuries, can be prevented by use of proper care by the railroad companies by warning employees, providing proper working conditions, providing proper protection, and the use of proper methods. Despite many years of knowledge on behalf of the railroad companies that the conditions they were exposing their workers to had the potential to cause serious and disabling occupational diseases, they have done nothing until recent years. As a result, workers have developed varying diseases and conditions from occupational exposure to these chemicals and conditions. Some of these diseases do not manifest themselves until many years after the original exposure. The railroads are responsible under the FELA for occupational diseases.
