My Husband Was Recently Diagnosed By His Doctor In Louisiana With Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma – What Is The Survival Rate And Can We File A Lawsuit?

We are deeply saddened to hear about your husband’s diagnosis and our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Unfortunately, there is no cure for Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma.

Many factors may be involved in determining the survival rate of someone diagnosed with mesothelioma. The American Cancer Society has reported that patients generally have a short, average mesothelioma life expectancy of four to 18 months after diagnosis.

Only 10% of mesothelioma patients survive more than five years after their initial diagnosis.

Many people who are diagnosed with mesothelioma from exposure to asbestos are eligible to file a lawsuit to receive financial compensation.
