Do You Need an Asbestos Lawyer; by anamaulida


									                             If you or someone you know has been
diagnosed with mesothelioma, lung cancer, or asbestosis, and you know of,
or suspect exposure to asbestos, contacting an asbestos cancer lawyer may
help provide financial security or restitution in your time of need.For
decades companies have been aware of the hazards of exposing workers to
asbestos dust, while the workers themselves were unaware. These companies
did nothing to warn or protect their employees or those who came in
contact with the asbestos when asbestos products were installed or
removed. These work environments include asbestos mills, mines, shipping
yards, some older Navy ships, and even private homes and public schools
where the material was used during constructions.For many victims
diagnosed with cancer, asbestos lawyer intervention is the only means
they have of seeking financial restitution for the damage, pain, and
deaths that the negligence of these companies has caused. Not only
workers, but also family members who may have had contact with them while
they were wearing their work clothes that were exposed to asbestos dust,
are at risk of developing mesothelioma or other asbestos related
diseases.Though the health risks of exposure have been documented since
the early 1900’s and possible even as early as the late
1800’s, asbestos law and liability issues have only become public
in the last 20-30 years. This is partly due to the fact that the length
of time between exposure and the development of systems can sometimes be
several years, even 30-40 years later. Many workers develop problems long
after they have left the employment of the company where it occurred.A
well-informed mesothelioma attorney may be able to help build a claim,
regardless of the length of time since the exposure. Claims may also be
possible if one’s spouse was exposed to asbestos, developed
mesothelioma, asbestosis, or lung cancer due to the exposure, and has
since passed away. It is the asbestos lawyer’s job to help you
build a claim. Asbestos lawsuits are likely to increase drastically in
the next decade, as more people develop symptoms and become aware of
their options. Unfortunately some of the earliest symptoms can be
mistaken as less serious illnesses and are often overlooked. These
symptoms include: dyspnea, pleuritic pain, fatigue, weight loss and a
lingering cough.Some patients do not have any symptoms in the early
stages. Early detection is crucial to the success of treatment, and
anyone who even suspects they may have been exposed should consult their
health care providers immediately. A chest x-ray is the first step
followed by blood work and pulmonary function tests if needed.When it
comes to mesothelioma, legal action by an asbestos lawyer will not cure
it, but it may help with the medical costs, and burden to those left
behind. There are currently three traditional methods of treatment
involving: surgery, chemotherapy drugs and radiation therapy. The disease
is most common in men and is not linked to any one race. Once it
develops, it will continue to grow until it is treated, or the victim
dies. An asbestos lawyer can help you get the level of compensation you
