Experienced Asbestos Attorney For Families Who Need It Most
When you or a loved one are diagnosed with an asbestos-related disease, life can change drastically in a single moment. Soon, you and your family will be inundated with doctor’s appointments and medical procedures, in addition to extensive medical bills and lost wages. You may be wondering why this happened to you and your family, and what you can do about it.
What You Need to Know About Asbestos
Prior to the 1980’s, a naturally occurring material known as asbestos was used widely in the military and in construction, commercial and industrial settings. We now know that when asbestos dust, particles and fibers are breathed into the lungs, serious health complications can result. Decades after asbestos fibers become lodged in the delicate tissues of the lungs, diseases like malignant mesothelioma, lung cancer, esophageal cancer, colon cancer and asbestosis can develop.
Tracing Your Exposure
Because the symptoms of asbestos-related diseases take so long to develop, it may be difficult to know immediately when and how your original exposure to asbestos took place. However, tracing your exposure to this dangerous material is critical to the development of a claim for damages. Many individuals who are diagnosed with mesothelioma or asbestosis were exposed to asbestos early in their working career, either through the military or by working for a company that used asbestos manufacturing or repair. Companies whose use of asbestos caused an employee to develop an incurable disease can be held legally accountable for their actions through the pursuit of an injury claim.
Getting the Financial Compensation You Need
Dealing with an asbestos-related disease can be exceptionally costly for you and your loved ones. While getting treatment is a priority, the surgeries, medications, and other therapies used to reduce symptoms are expensive. Individuals who are diagnosed with mesothelioma have another critical aspect to consider. Malignant mesothelioma and many other forms of cancer will eventually become fatal, and it’s important that the patient’s family is well compensated for their loss.
By working with a skilled California asbestos attorney, you can begin the process of bringing forward a claim for financial restitution. There are many avenues to explore, including asbestos products liability litigation, workers’ compensation, Veterans’ Benefits, and asbestos trust compensation. An experienced lawyer who specializes in mesothelioma and asbestos litigation can provide you the guidance you need to obtain the maximum amount of compensation available in your case.
