Sarcomatoid mesothelioma rare but difficult to treat

Mesothelioma is a type of cancer that forms in the thin layer of tissue that covers many organ cells. Approximately 3,000 people are diagnosed with the disease in Kentucky and across the United States each year. Most mesothelioma cases occur in the lining of the mesothelium in the lungs. The development of mesothelioma has been linked to the inhalation of asbestos fibers.

Lawsuits allege J&J knew asbestos contaminated its products

Kentucky consumers might have been exposed to asbestos when using talc products like baby powder sold by Johnson & Johnson. Multiple lawsuits have accused the consumer care products company of knowingly selling talc products contaminated with asbestos. Over a dozen new trials have been scheduled in 2019 against the company that has already been targeted by 11,700 lawsuits involving unsafe products.

How women can be exposed to asbestos outside the workplace

Whereas many countries have banned asbestos outright, the mineral can still be found in many old buildings and in many products here in the U.S. Women are especially at risk for asbestos exposure through the various products that are marketed directly to them. Louisville residents should know that several companies have faced multimillion-dollar lawsuits because of this.

Identifying cause of toxic exposure central to recovering damages

Exposure to toxic substances in Kentucky workplaces or homes sometimes sickens victims and leaves them with serious medical problems like mesothelioma or other cancers. If you are coping with this type of problem, you could have the option of pursuing financial damages through a legal action called a toxic tort. Causation presents the primary challenge when building a case of this type because the opposing party might argue that something else caused the disease. A test that provides a definitive connection between exposure to dangerous substances and health problems does not necessarily exist.
