Attorneys in Hawaii Handling Mesothelioma Lawsuits

However, this does not mean that its residents are not still susceptible to mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer caused by asbestos poisoning, and other asbestos-related diseases. In fact, in Hawaii between 1979 and 1999, there were 138 recorded deaths related to asbestos, including 79 caused by mesothelioma.
