LegalView Remains at the Forefront of Assisting Mesothelioma Patients as Florida Man Files Suit for Nearly 40 Years Asbestos Exposure
A Florida man, who for almost four decades claims to have been exposed to asbestos through various jobs, filed a lawsuit after being diagnosed with mesothelioma and LegalView reminds readers that it has a vast array of resources for people with similar situations.
PR9.NET November 04, 2007 - Denver, CO - A Florida man, Walter Idalski, filed suit against 63 corporations he claims are responsible for his recent mesothelioma diagnosis caused through exposure to asbestos during a nearly 40-year period. The man worked as a foreman, welder, maintenance worker and porter from 1944 to 1983, during which time he believes his exposure and inhalation of asbestos fibers occurred. The suit, which will be tried in Madison County Circuit Court in Florida under case number 07-L-000920, claims that several of the companies the man was employed by, including Chrysler, Ford Motor Company and General Electric, knew and could have prevented the exposure, which has over the years developed into a deadly form of mesothelioma. Mesothelioma is a fatal disease, which is usually caused by inhalation of asbestos fibers. The fibers attach to the lung and over long periods of time cause a severe form of cancer. LegalView would like to remind readers that it provides extensive resources for others who suffer from mesothelioma or have been exposed to asbestos fibers through the years. LegalView can also help victims receive counsel from mesothelioma law firms that can help to ease the difficulty and shock of this prognosis.
Mesothelioma can take years to develop and is often misdiagnosed. Once diagnosed with mesothelioma, most victims are expected to live no longer than a year. There are no known treatable cures for the cancer, but there are various clinical trial drugs available as well as options of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. To find more information on mesothelioma, contact a mesothelioma attorney, or to find literature, readers should consult LegalView's mesothelioma information portal. Because asbestos was used in the construction of government buildings, schools, prisons, power plants, nursing homes, hospitals and residential homes for a number of years, many individuals may have been exposed. Between the years of 1979 and 2001, 43,000 people died due to asbestos exposure resulting in mesothelioma, according to the Environmental Working Group.
The rare cancer can be devastating to not only victims but friends and families as well, which is why LegalView offers informative and detailed information to victims of mesothelioma.
