History of Mesothelioma

Dallas Injury Attorneys Connecting Asbestos Exposure
to Mesothelioma

Asbestos has been used for centuries in fireproofing, insulating, and in many manufacturing industries. Although malignant mesothelioma was not linked to asbestos exposure until the 1960s (and the information was not released to the general public until the 1970s), medical experts throughout the world began speculating about health concerns associated with asbestos exposure as early as the late 1800s and early 1900s.

In the 1920s, following the first asbestosis diagnosis in England, a study commenced that revealed one in four asbestos workers in England was suffering from a related lung disease. Subsequent studies detailing the risks of asbestos exposure were brought to the attention of manufacturers producing asbestos products and industrial businesses using commercial products containing asbestos.

Companies were aware of the risks of asbestos exposure in the 1960s and continued to allow workers to be exposed in the workplace for approximately another decade before the information was released to the general public. At this point, the commercial use of asbestos was phased out. Although highly regulated, asbestos is still used in certain industries today.

Asbestos & Mesothelioma Litigation

Asbestos litigation has commenced against manufacturers, product suppliers, employers, and other parties that were responsible for placing workers at risk. Settlements obtained not only alleviate the financial burdens of those dealing with the fatal lung disease mesothelioma or other asbestos-related diseases—these settlements enable victims and their families to obtain justice for their suffering.
