Mesothelioma: Mesothelioma is a relatively rare cancer, that is usually associated with asbestos. Exposure to asbestos fibers can cause mesothelioma even years later.
Currently, mesothelioma is an active area of lawsuits and litigation.
The area of law is not usually medical malpractice, because mesothelioma liability
is usually related to the asbestos exposure, involving legal areas such as product liability,
wrongful death, or other liability.
However, medical malpractice for mesothelioma can occur due to failure to diagnose mesothelioma
in its early stages.
Such delayed diagnosis of mesothelioma worsens its prognosis.
Always seek qualified legal advice about malpractice or other law, as the area is very complex.
