Legal Support for Mesothelioma Patients
Thousands of Americans are diagnosed with mesothelioma each year. The disease is found in the lining of the chest or the abdomen and is caused by the inhalation of asbestos dust. Mesothelioma most often affects workers in construction, manufacturing, mining, shipbuilding and automotive repair. Exposure to asbestos is the only known cause of mesothelioma.
One of the challenges for mesothelioma sufferers is that their symptoms often do not emerge until years after their exposure, when the cancer may in an advanced stage. That means a patient might not display symptoms until 10 or even 50 years after the initial exposure. By the time symptoms appear, many patients may not be able to recall past jobs where they were exposed to asbestos.
While the number one priority for someone diagnosed with mesothelioma is to receive quality medical care, it is also important for victims of asbestos-related diseases like mesothelioma to know that they have legal rights and can pursue an asbestos exposure lawsuit against the company or agency that exposed them to this toxic substance.
Finding a qualified asbestos exposure lawyer who has experience handling asbestos claims is critical to ensuring that financial obligations can be met. A qualified mesothelioma attorney can hold those companies accountable for their role in spreading this deadly disease.
