Columbia Personal Injury Lawyer > Orangeburg Asbestos/Mesothelioma Lawyer

Orangeburg Asbestos/Mesothelioma Lawyer

Asbestos is a natural material made up of tiny fibers. Because it is resistant to heat but also very strong, asbestos was the perfect material for use in insulation and fire-retardant materials.

Unfortunately, asbestos fibers are deadly if breathed into the lungs. Those working in construction, manufacturing, and shipbuilding often cut materials containing asbestos, which released the fibers. Once inhaled, asbestos can lead to lung diseases, including mesothelioma. Call The Stanley Law Group if you have received a lung cancer diagnosis. Our firm can review the facts and identify if you can sue. If hired, our Orangeburg asbestos/mesothelioma lawyer will gather relevant evidence and pursue a settlement or lawsuit on your behalf.

Mesothelioma Symptoms and Prognosis

Mesothelioma is a type of cancer in the mesothelium, the tissue lining many organs, including the lungs. This cancer is known for its aggressiveness. It spreads rapidly, and common treatments, such as surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy are often ineffective at halting the disease. The relative 5-year survival rate is only 12%.

Mesothelioma is often found around the lungs, which is called pleural mesothelioma. Common symptoms include:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Painful coughing
  • Chest pain
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Fatigue

Mesothelioma is also common in abdominal tissue and can lead to:

  • Abdominal swelling
  • Weight loss
  • Abdominal pain
  • Nausea

How We Can Help

A mesothelioma diagnosis is devastating. Many patients are already enduring intense pain, and now they fear their condition is fatal.

One question is whether you were exposed to asbestos. Many people develop mesothelioma after workplace exposure. They often worked at jobs involving grinding, cutting, or sanding materials, which released asbestos fibers into the air. Because they did not have respirator protection, many workers inhaled the fibers.

In a consultation, we can:

  • Discuss your illness and prognosis. Many of our clients have just been diagnosed, while others are in the latter-stages of the disease.
  • Your work history. In addition to shipbuilding, many victims are exposed to asbestos in construction or demolition work.
  • Provide an overview of the claims process, including making a claim on one of the asbestos trusts. More than $30 billion has been set aside for asbestos victims.
  • Discuss next steps to take, including what documents you will need to bring a successful claim.

Countless people are dealing with mesothelioma from exposure that dates from 50 years ago. It often takes 40 years or more from the date of exposure to when symptoms appear and a person is diagnosed.

Possible compensation includes damages for medical care, lost income, and pain and suffering. We might negotiate with an asbestos manufacturer for a settlement or head right into court and file a lawsuit. We can discuss the factors that go into that consideration.
