Mesothelioma law (asbestos law) refers to laws which are established by the government that regulate exposure to asbestos in the workplace. Mesothelioma law (asbestos law) is currently the topic of debate in the U.S. Congress. The mesothelioma laws established by the government also allows the victims of mesothelioma cancer to seek compensation.
