Painkillers are a very powerful tool used to reduce or ease different types of pain. Healthcare professionals and different social media programs are constantly warning us about the possible side effects and overdose consequences. Nevertheless, statistics show that the number of painkiller abuse victims increases annually. Acetaminophen is a well-spread painkiller that is used to reduce and ease the pain in many conditions. This component classifies as a miscellaneous analgesic and antipyretic, approved by FDA in 1980.
Mesothelioma, a rare deadly form of cancer, is caused by exposure to asbestos. Workers dealing with asbestos usually get sick with mesothelioma. Moreover, their wives most likely to become mesothelioma patients because they inhale the tiny deadly fibres that have been brought home on the clothing, skin, and hair. This limited amount of asbestos exposure was enough to lead to a mesothelioma diagnosis decades later.
Paul Danziger writes in his article “The Right Way to Deal With Mesothelioma Lawsuits” that if a mesothelioma has been diagnosed, one should immediately proceed with a mesothelioma lawsuit. He claims that because the disease is caused by asbestos, and because the companies that exposed their employees and consumers to asbestos were aware of the risks that they were exposing people to, the victims have a right to file a lawsuit for damages caused be their negligence. A great number of lawsuits have been filed and the awards have been won by victims either as a result of a decision by a jury or as a result of a settlement agreement have been so large that mesothelioma has become one of the largest mass torts in American history.
