Sickened by Asbestos, Mesothelioma Victims Awarded Billions [VIDEO]
For decades the asbestos industry covered up the known danger that breathing asbestos causes mesothelioma, a fatal cancer that causes internal tumors. Lawyers.com Supervising Producer John McCarthy interviews attorney Kevin Conway of Chicago, who has handled mesothelioma cases for 40 years.
Referring to the coverup by the asbestos industry, Conway says, “How many people have been killed as a result of these actions? They are more than irresponsible, in my opinion. I think the conduct was willful. I think these lawsuits are a small part of the price of what they should have paid.”
Mesothelioma is an incurable lung cancer, where tumors grow from the outside of the lungs inward. Every year, 2,500 new mesothelioma cases are filed in the U.S.
Mesothelioma patients who were sickened by asbestos have recovered tens of billions of dollars of damages. Conway describes the four elements required to recover damages for a mesothelioma lawsuit.
