Mesothelioma / Asbestos Cases

Exposed? Contact a San Diego Personal Injury Attorney.

Asbestos are a several types of minerals, which were prevalent in many building materials throughout 20th century. While there was some familiarity about the hazards of asbestos exposure, the negative impact had not fully been understood until workers began developing mesothelioma, a cancer caused by being exposed to asbestos. Asbestos was officially banned from usage in building materials by the EPA in 1989.

Mesothelioma has a long incubation period; this means that the cancer symptoms may not begin to show until about 20 or more years later. In this instance, even though many years has passed, upon discovery of the cancer, you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit to reclaim damages caused to you.

What are the hazards of asbestos?

Nowadays, most employers encourage precautionary measures to safeguard their employees from coming into contact with asbestos. Yet, there still may be some who do not follow these safety measures. One example to reduce the risk of exposure if asbestos is found during construction of a building, a hazmat crew must be called in to clear the area of asbestos. Unfortunately, when such safety measures are ignored or not enforced, this is what causes risk to workers. If you believe you have been exposed, be sure to speak with your doctor.

Here are some of the early symptoms of mesothelioma:

  • Chest pain
  • Weight loss
  • Fatigue
  • Shortness of breath
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Anemia

Note that some of these symptoms can be symptoms of other types of respiratory illnesses. Be sure to continuously keep up with your doctor about your symptoms to ensure that you are properly diagnosed.
