What is Asbestos/MesotheliomaMesothelioma, a type of lung cancer that is almost always fatal, is generally the result of prolonged exposure to asbestos. Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral substance that that acts as an effective insulator and can be easily mixed into cloth, paper, cement, plastic and other materials to make them stronger. Unfortunately, the process of doing so makes asbestos highly toxic. Mesothelioma settlements can be quite large and as such, the lawsuit process can become quite complex.
