Mesothelioma is a type of cancer caused by malignant (cancerous) cells developing in the mesothelium, the protective sac that covers much of the body’s internal organs. It is typically the case that Mesothelioma starts in the outer membrane of the lungs.
There is no cure for mesothelioma unless it is able to be removed by surgery. However, it is invariably the case that by the time mesothelioma is diagnosed, it is often too late.
Mesothelioma is almost always caused by exposure to asbestos and can develop decades after the exposure.
Erin and her team have worked and continue to work with many mesothelioma sufferers and their families recover compensation.
