Asbestos / Mesothelioma Lawyers in El Paso, Texas

Representation for Victims Harmed by Asbestos Exposure

Asbestos is a set of naturally occurring minerals that was used widely in the early 20th century for various construction, manufacturing, and industrial purposes. Although it was hailed for its durability, low cost, and resistance to heat and fire, it is now known for its devastating risks to humans, including increased risks for serious and deadly diseases like mesothelioma.

While scientific studies have long confirmed the dangers of asbestos, and although regulations banned its use in the U.S. for many purposes, there are still numerous claims and lawsuits being filed by victims and families who suffer today. At The Daspit Law Firm, our El Paso asbestos attorneys know just how devastating exposure, mesothelioma, and related diseases can be, and are committed to fighting for victims as they seek justice and compensation for their losses by pursuing asbestos-related personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits.

Asbestos / Mesothelioma Litigation

Asbestos-based litigation is the most expensive and longest running mass tort in American history. That’s due to the numerous victims and families who have been affected by the dangerous substance, as well as the long latency period associated with asbestos exposure and related diseases (between 10 to 50 years after initial exposure. Many of these victims suffered harm due to exposure in the workplace (occupational exposure) and in other non-work related ways (non-occupational exposure).

Examples include:

  • Asbestos mining
  • Service in the military, and especially the U.S. Navy
  • Manufacturing and construction
  • Railroad and shipyard occupations
  • Steel work and other trade / craftsman occupations
  • Second-hand exposure to families of workers in high risk fields
  • Homeowners and laborers who lived or worked in older homes with asbestos
  • Exposure to naturally occurring asbestos, including asbestos mines

Asbestos exposure can result in a number of serious and life-altering conditions, and are known for their prolonged latency, which means it can take decades before victims suffer illnesses after being exposed to the substance.

Examples of common conditions associated with asbestos exposure include:

  • Mesothelioma – Mesothelioma is the most well-known disease associated with asbestos exposure. A rare and deadly form of cancer, mesothelioma (pleural) affects a person’s lungs, and can cause considerable fluid build-up, fatigue, anemia, coughing, chest pain, shortness of breath, and cancerous growths in the chest. Another rarer form of mesothelioma (peritoneal) can cause swelling and pain in the abdomen, as well as fluid build-up, issues with bowel function, and weight loss. Mesothelioma may develop anywhere between 10 to 50 years after exposure, and currently has no known cure.
  • Asbestosis – Asbestosis is a progressive (worsening) condition involving lung tissues that have been damages and scarred by inhaled asbestos fibers. Scarring can result in a number of adverse symptoms, including difficulties with breathing, coughing, fatigue, and more. While the average latency period for asbestosis is 15 to 30 years, it can fully develop in as little as 7.
  • Pleural disorders – Asbestos fibers are extremely hazardous to the cardiovascular system, and can scar and damage the thin layer of tissue around the lungs known as the pleura. When fibers are inhaled, victims may develop non-malignant conditions such as pleural effusion and pleural plaque, among others.

Victims who suffer from asbestos-related conditions, as well as their families, can suffer profoundly in numerous ways – physically, emotionally, and financially. As such, they have the right to explore available legal pathways established specifically for victims of asbestos exposure, which can help them recover financial compensation for their damages and losses.
