Peritoneal Mesothelioma Lawyers
Mesothelioma, a rare but deadly form of cancer typically caused by asbestos exposure, can develop in a number of different ways. Because it begins in the mesothelium, the protective lining of the body’s organs, there are several possible locations in the body in which it can appear. The pleura, or the protective lining of the lungs, is by far the most common site for mesothelioma to develop. However, a significant minority of mesothelioma sufferers develop the disease in the peritoneum, the lining of the abdominal cavity.
If you or someone you know has developed peritoneal mesothelioma caused by exposure to asbestos, you may be eligible to pursue compensation for your medical costs and other losses you have suffered.
