Denver, CO (PRWEB) August 21, 2007
LegalView.com, your complete online resource for everything legal, would like to remind readers that they can find complete, accurate information on the deadly cancer mesothelioma at Legalview.com's mesothelioma information portal. Mesothelioma is a type of lung cancer that is almost always caused by preventable occupational exposure to asbestos, a building material that was extremely common in shipyards, construction and other heavy industry in the decades following World War II. Hundreds of thousands of American workers and service members were exposed to the carcinogen. Anyone who believe they may have a case similar to that of Mr. White is advised to contact a mesothelioma lawyer to get sound advice on their case.
Scientists have known since the early 20th century that asbestos causes mesothelioma and other serious health problems. However, many industries have continued to use old parts and equipment, which may still contain asbestos. As a result, workers in industries that used asbestos heavily continued to be exposed as late as 1990; some may still be exposed today. Decades later, these workers are at a drastically increased risk of being diagnosed with mesothelioma. And unfortunately, mesothelioma is almost always deadly; victims have a median survival rate of six months to a year after diagnosis, according to the Centers for Disease control.
In order to help those who may be affected by this terrible disease as a result of exposure to toxic asbestos, LegalView.com is happy to announce that its Mesothelioma information portal will soon launch with a completely new format and layout, better designed to provide useful information to sufferers of Mesothelioma and there families. In addition to the already existing original articles on the disease, a glossary of terms, up-to-date news articles, FDA alerts, and jury verdicts and settlements, LegalView.com's mesothelioma and asbestos information portal will include information on treatment centers in each U.S. state, as well as detailed catalogs of information on where asbestos is known to have been found, companies that have made the toxic substance and products that have been known to contain it. For those who believe they may need legal counsel regarding mesothelioma and asbestos, readers can always use LegalView.com's attorney referral service to get in touch with an experienced mesothelioma attorney.
