Have You Or A Loved One Been Diagnosed With Asbestosis Or Mesothelioma?
Asbestos exposure has been proven to cause mesothelioma, a rare cancer, and asbestosis, a form of pulmonary fibrosis of the lung tissue. Asbestos is an industrial product subject to strict regulation in the United States. However, many manufacturers of commercial merchandise still use asbestos. Asbestos is present in automotive parts, adhesives, flooring, fireproofing material, cement, roofing, plumbing products, insulation, laboratory equipment and many other products.
Asbestos manufacturers have been paying for the serious consequences of their dangerous material for several decades. But because there is a latency period between the exposure and when devastating symptoms occur, lawsuits are ongoing. If your physician has said your symptoms indicate an asbestosis or mesothelioma diagnosis, speak to an experienced personal injury attorney. Our attorneys can assist you with pursuing compensation for medical bills, rehabilitative equipment, lost and future wages, and other damages. We do not charge for a consultation or for attorney’s fees unless we recover compensation for you.
What Is A Latency Period?
Mesothelioma develops in the lining around lungs, inside the ribs and around other abdominal organs. A latency period is the time between actual exposure to asbestos and the time the serious disease develops and causes harm to the human body. Malignant mesothelioma is known to develop anywhere from 20 to 50 years following asbestos exposure.
