 ==== ====Find more Informations herehttp://www.mesotheliomacancerlaw.info ==== ====The Role of a Mesothelioma Lawyer Mesothelioma is a rare cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. It is a condition where a tumorforms in the mesothelium, the protective membrane that covers internal organs. Mesothelioma ismostly malignant and only 10% of the cases are diagnosed as benign or solitary fibrous tumors.Although most patients are men above 60, the disease may also occur in younger men, womenand children as well. Although considered to only be an occupational hazard, the carcinogenic properties of asbestoscan be transferred from person to person. This potency can be better gauged by the fact thatwomen who washed the clothing of family members exposed to asbestos have also been knownto develop mesothelioma. The link between asbestos and mesothelioma was established in the 1950s. By the 1970s it wasclear that the inhalation of asbestos fibers caused cancer. Strict guidelines were framed andmanufacturers of products containing asbestos and places where it was used for insulation wererequired to provide the necessary safety gear and precautions. Generally, this disease takes 20 to40 years to develop after initial exposure to asbestos. This is the main reason why mostmesothelioma patients are above 60. There are numerous cases of Navy veterans havingdeveloped this disease due to on-the-job exposure to asbestos. Anyone suffering lung damage or developing mesothelioma due to asbestos exposure may beeligible for claiming compensation. The fact of the matter is that it is not the government to blamebut the manufacturers who failed to inform and provide safety measures despite knowledge ofasbestos hazards. Problems arose when people started filing lawsuits and the number of asbestoscompensation matters before courts started troubling manufacturers. Faced with a difficultsituation, some manufacturers resorted to more questionable tactics. Many indulged in extensivelobbying to convert all these cases into class action lawsuits. Class action has some advantagesfor defendants since the rights of future claimants to pursue individual cases, based on specificcircumstances are severely curtailed. A nationally acclaimed mesothelioma lawyer has played amajor role in subverting the efforts of such asbestos manufacturers. The mesothelioma lawyer in question is from the law firm of Baron and Budd, P.C. Thismesothelioma lawyer went to the U.S Supreme Court when the individual rights of mesotheliomapatients were threatened. This Texas based mesothelioma lawyer led the charge against powerfulinterest groups and also against other plaintiffs' law firms who were prepared to trade in the rightsof future mesothelioma patients. While yeoman service was rendered to existing claimants andfuture mesothelioma patients, it also proved that a mesothelioma lawyer could make a differencein an asbestos lawsuit. Please visit www.MesotheliomaNews.com for more information about the mesothelioma lawyer
