At one time, asbestos was widely used in buildings and other applications. It was considered a good insulator, among other things. Then it was found to cause mesothelioma. Those with a mesothelioma diagnosis can often seek damages from an employer, building owner or asbestos manufacturer.

Mesothelioma is a kind of cancer that affects the lung, stomach and cardiac cavities. It is caused primarily by inhalation of asbestos. There is no known cure for mesothelioma cancer.
To make matters worse, mesothelioma is very commonly misdiagnosed because many of the symptoms, including shortness of breath, lower back pain, excessive sweating, fatigue, cough and fever, are the same as those of other illnesses. For this reason, there is often very little than can be done in terms of treatment by the time it has been diagnosed.
Asbestos fibers are very small and they can be breathed into the lungs and even swallowed. The toxicity over time causes tissue damage and results in this incurable cancer.
Some occupations, such as working in shipyards, mills and the automotive industry, were particularly vulnerable to asbestos poisoning. Many of these workers were diagnosed with mesothelioma.
