Rancho Mirage Asbestos Attorney

Rancho Mirage is a Riverside County resort city known for being the home of former Presidents, celebrities and political figures alike. The small resort city has just over 18,000 residents, although plenty of tourists visit the city during peak seasons.

Despite the idyllic conditions and wonderful quality of life in Rancho, an asbestos diagnosis could turn a Rancho Mirage resident’s world upside down. Rancho Mirage’s Riverside County has the 4th-highest estimated number of asbestos-related deaths from 1999 to 2013.

More than 1,000 Riverside County residents are estimated to have lost their life to asbestos-related illnesses like the following:

  • Asbestos-related lung cancer
  • Asbestosis
  • Mesothelioma

Each of these diseases can be fatal, but mesothelioma in particular is a difficult to diagnose and dangerous disease caused by asbestos exposure. If you or a loved one in Rancho Mirage or Riverside County has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, talk to The Ledger Law Firm to discuss your right to compensation for the wrongful exposure.

What Is Mesothelioma?

To understand the dangers posed by mesothelioma, one must first understand why asbestos exposure is dangerous. Asbestos was ultimately banned in the 1970s after decades of extensive use at industrial jobsites because of the mineral’s natural durability and resistance to flame/chemicals.

However, it eventually became clear that asbestos is toxic to human health when asbestos-containing materials are disturbed, thereby releasing the mineral’s microscopic fibers into the air. At this point, humans exposed to the asbestos can easily swallow or inhale the fibers.

Asbestos fibers that enter the body and line the lungs can ultimately cause mesothelioma, although it can take decades for the tumors to form within the thin membrane of cells lining the lungs.

This long gestation process makes mesothelioma difficult to diagnose, which in part explains why the disease is so deadly. The one-year survival rate for pleural mesothelioma patients is just 38%, and the five-year survival rate precipitously drops to a mere 10%.

The dire survival rates are troubling enough, but the treatment costs associated with pleural mesothelioma can be extensive as well. Whether you are a surviving loved one or a patient coping with the difficulties of paying for treatment, our team at The Ledger Law Firm is here to help.
