Mesothelioma, a devastating illness with a short life expectancy, is caused by asbestos exposure. It generally develops 20 to 40 years after the first exposure but may emerge 60 or more years later. Asbestos exposure also causes lung cancer and asbestosis, which also develop decades later. According to the CDC, approximately 60 people in New Mexico die from asbestos-related diseases yearly. 

Asbestos exposure typically does not result in immediate symptoms or warning signs, which means you can be exposed without knowing or feeling anything is wrong. 

The lack of immediate signs, combined with the latency of mesothelioma and other asbestos-related illnesses, allowed the asbestos industry to conceal its knowledge about the material’s dangers for nearly half a century. As a result, millions of workers have contracted these deadly diseases, and many workers are still exposed today.

If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you may be entitled to recover substantial compensation. A compassionate New Mexico mesothelioma attorney at the Lanier Law Firm can help.
