Get the facts on asbestos and mesothelioma

| Jan 2, 2018 | Mesothelioma/Asbestos-Related Illness |

Think asbestos isn’t a problem anymore? You had better think again. In fact, while asbestos use may have dropped since the 1970s, thousands of people still die from mesothelioma and other asbestos-related medical conditions every year. Even worse, some studies indicate that mesothelioma deaths may even be increasing.

Not surprisingly, one study conducted last year and published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that older individuals are most at risk when it comes to mesothelioma. According to this study, the more than 45,000 mesothelioma-related deaths reported in the United States from 1999 to 2015 could be broken down as follows:

  • Ages 25-34: 138 mesothelioma deaths
  • Ages 35-44: 544 mesothelioma deaths
  • Ages 45-54: 1,936 mesothelioma deaths
  • Ages 55-64: 6,237 mesothelioma deaths
  • Ages 65-74: 12,985 mesothelioma deaths
  • Ages 75 and older: 23,281 mesothelioma deaths

If you would like to learn more about these statistics and other alarming asbestos-related facts, we encourage you to read the FREE white paper we published a few weeks ago titled, Asbestos: The Relentless Killer. In this paper, we discuss the possible reasons why asbestos deaths remain high, as well as the legal options available to victims.

If you or a family member has developed a severe medical condition following asbestos exposure, it is crucial to remember that you have rights – and knowing your rights is the first step to making informed legal decisions.
