Learning that you have been walking around for years with a latent disease inside your body might as well be compared to receiving a sudden punch to the gut. If your doctor has diagnosed you with mesothelioma, he or she has also no doubt explained that, at this time, there is no cure for this disease. There are numerous ways this illness can affect the body. Your Minnesota medical team and care providers will help you determine which course of treatment might be best.
If, at some point, you also learned that your employer was negligent in his or her duty to keep you safe in the workplace, you might also want to speak with someone well-versed in asbestos litigation laws. In fact, there are many class action lawsuits pending regarding such issues. An employer must warn workers about known health risks present on the job.
There is no safe amount of asbestos exposure and no way to know if its present unless your employer tells you or you are privy to information resulting from certified testing of the air in your workplace. If someone's negligence caused you to suffer injury, then you are entitled to seek financial accountability against the negligent party in a civil court. Many asbestos injury plaintiffs who have successfully litigated similar cases have used court-awarded compensation to help offset medical bills and other expenses related to their injuries.
