The History of Asbestos and Mesothelioma Cancer

Nelly Kershaw was the first person to making a claim for asbestos and mesothelioma cancer against Turner Brothers. When she gets sick,she visits her doctor unable to eat and unable to work. They felt that accepting any liability from Kershaw would open the Turner Brothers to additional claims. 

Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that develops from cells of the mesothelium, the protective lining that covers many of the internal organs of the body. Mesothelioma is most commonly caused by exposure to asbestos. The most common anatomical site for mesothelioma is the pleura (the outer lining of the lungs and internal chest wall), but it can also arise in the peritoneum (the lining of the abdominal cavity), the pericardium (the sac that surrounds the heart), or the tunica vaginalis (a sac that surrounds the testis)
