Mesothelioma Treatment Centers in Illinois

Illinois Mesothelioma Treatment CentersOver 60 Illinois oil refineries, power plants, factories, businesses, marine facilities, and schools have been accused of negligently exposing their employees and other individuals to asbestos. Asbestos exposure in these and other Illinois locations can lead to serious health problems, including asbestosis (a non cancerous lung diseases), lung cancer, mesothelioma (cancer of the organs’ lining), and other forms of cancer.

Asbestos, a naturally occurring group of fibrous minerals, has long been prized for its durability, heat and flame resistance, sound proofing, insulating, and other properties. While the risks of asbestos exposure have been known for a century, businesses consistently chose profit at the expense of human health. Thousands of Illinois workers and other citizens have needlessly been exposed to asbestos, only to develop a serious illness years or even decades later.

Asbestos Statistics in Illinois

According to official estimates, nearly 2,000 citizens of Illinois lost their lives because of mesothelioma or another asbestos related disease between 1979 and 1999. This number is significantly high compared to the death rates in other states in the Union.
