Commercials Get Me Thinking

If you watch even a small amount of cable TV you will see accident litigation lawyers who always want to help you if you've been diagnosed with mesothelioma. I have heard these ads 100s upon 100s of times so I finally decided to do some research about mesothelioma and figure out exactly why it is such a big deal. Apparently mesothelioma is a rare for of cancer that starts forming in the protective sheath that covers the majority of the body's internal organs. This lining, called mesothelium, starts failing when the irregular cell division occurs. Exposure to asbestos (a naturally occuring silicate) is a fibrous crystal and inhalation of these fibers often causes severe illness (mesothelioma). Common areas affected by mesothelioma are the outer lining of the lungs, the lining of the abdominal cavity, and the pericardium (the sac that encapsulates the heart). After thorough research I now understand how devastating this condition can be and see why lawyers want to capitalize on cases associated with this malignant cancer and help facilitate the collection of compensation for the unfortunate victims of asbestos exposure.
