Texas Mesothelioma Lawyer Can Help You Build A Case

Oct 11, 2007
Each year 3,000 cases of Mesothelioma are diagnosed and most of the people who are diagnosed with this deadly cancer have never heard of it. The unfortunate nature of the disease is that if the symptoms were diagnosed properly the treatment could have had an impact.

Mesothelioma is a cancer of the pleura (the lining of the lungs), around the lining of the heart or the lining of the abdominal cavity. While Mesothelioma cancer is rare, most people die after a year or two of diagnosis.

The majority of Mesothelioma cases are traced back to exposure to asbestos - and no other cause for this cancer has ever been found. Exposure to asbestos happens primarily through jobs that were held by people working with asbestos as well as some military service. Until 20 years ago, many materials and products that were used in manufacturing and construction used asbestos until it was found that exposure to the product caused Mesothelioma and other health problems.

During World War II when naval ship yards were producing many ships for the war effort, asbestos was in high use and demand. Asbestos was also being used for construction in all types of buildings, as well as the manufacturing and automobiles. Until recently, the processes and products that used asbestos were unregulated, however the risks of asbestos exposure were still well known, however the companies that use the product still continued to use asbestos freely in their practices.

One of the unfortunate truths is that many of the companies who made use of asbestos provided little in the way of education or protection of the risks of asbestos exposure to their workers. This does however leave the companies on the hook for compensating the victims of Mesothelioma.

Unfortunately, it is not only the workers who are contracting Mesothelioma, it is also their families, spouses and children, of workers who worked with asbestos are also at risk of contacting this deadly cancer. Asbestos is a nearly indestructible, very fine fiber that is easily inhaled and is then lodged in the lining of the lungs primarily, which then causes inflammation and then Mesothelioma. These fibers are easily brought home attached to skin, hair, shoes or clothing and then dislodged at home, exposing more people to the asbestos, and thusly, Mesothelioma.

If someone you love or yourself has Mesothelioma, you need to contact a Mesothelioma attorney to find out if you have a case for a Mesothelioma lawsuit. The largest difficulty with exposure to asbestos and Mesothelioma symptoms beginnings is the long time between the exposure and diagnosis. Mesothelioma doesn't usually begin to present symptoms until about 20 years after exposure to asbestos. This makes it quite difficult to diagnose the cancer and track the asbestos exposure, the cause or companies that are responsible.

The symptoms of Mesothelioma include fluid in the chest, chest pains, difficulty breathing, and coughing. Because of the nature of these symptoms and the fact that they are so similar to other medical problems, they are easily mistaken for other conditions, which can delay the diagnosis of Mesothelioma cancer. Unfortunately, by the time people are diagnosed with Mesothelioma it is too late - most people pass away within one or two years of diagnosis and conventional cancer treatments like radiation and chemotherapy have little effect on the disease.

Most of the cases of Mesothelioma can blame the companies and supervisors for whom they worked in the past dealing with asbestos. Most people and companies knew of the dangers of working with asbestos and failed to take any safety precautions for the material handlers. This cancer is devastating to those who have it and to their families, physically, emotionally and financially.

A Texas Mesothelioma lawyer can help you build a case for yourself or a loved one who has Mesothelioma. A Texas Mesothelioma attorney is the only one who is capable of tracking down the companies who are responsible for the asbestos exposure. A good Mesothelioma lawyer in Texas can help with a Mesothelioma lawsuit for financial compensation for you and your family.

A Mesothelioma lawyer can link your cancer with asbestos exposure that you had when you worked before as well as fighting for your rights and compensation for the Mesothelioma cancer you've contracted due to the exposure. While compensation won't replace a life lost to Mesothelioma cancer, it can help cover the lost wages, pain and suffering, funeral expenses and medical costs that were caused by the cancer.
