Not just a U.S. problem: Mesothelioma is seen around the world

By now, you may know a good deal about the ongoing health crisis caused by asbestos exposure in the United States, with the majority of mesothelioma cases attributed to exposure. Each year, about 3,000 Americans are diagnosed with the deadly disease.

It is not as commonly known that mesothelioma afflicts many people in Europe, Asia and other parts of the world. Asbestos-related diseases are a global problem, and victims and their families need help with diagnosis, treatment and compensation. 

An ongoing health problem

  • According to a World Health Organization (WHO) announcement in 2015, approximately 300 million people live in European countries where asbestos use has not been completely banned. According to the WHO, almost 15,000 people die each year as a result of diseases caused by asbestos exposure.
  • In Italy, asbestosis and mesothelioma have taken their horrific toll on thousands of people. Near a now-closed Eternit factory that once produced asbestos in Monferrato, the legacy of cancers and other serious health problems continue to plague former workers and their families.
  • In the U.K., more than 80 percent of school buildings reportedly still contain asbestos.
  • Japan and other Asian nations have experienced a rise in asbestos related illness, according to United Nations University.
  • Workers in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia and Mexico have experienced asbestos-related illness in significant numbers.

You are not alone

If you or one of your loved ones has been diagnosed with mesothelioma or is concerned about asbestos-related disease, you are not alone. It is essential to get the advice you need as you develop a strategy to meet medical needs and living expenses.

You may be entitled to significant compensation as a mesothelioma victim or family member of a victim. Make sure you speak to an attorney about your legal rights.
