Understand the Link Between Asbestos & Mesothelioma

If you have contracted an asbestos-related disease such as mesothelioma or asbestosis, you must consult a Galveston personal injury attorney at our firm right away. Mesothelioma is considered to be 100% preventable, yet litigation arising from asbestos exposure continues to rise year after year. In fact, as of 2013, more than 10,000 companies across the nation were sued by claimants who had contracted mesothelioma due to asbestos exposure.

Mesothelioma can be diagnosed in three ways: pleural, peritoneal, and pericardial. The Daspit Law Firm is a proud advocate of individuals who have been diagnosed with all forms of mesothelioma or malignant mesothelioma due to toxic exposure. Our devoted legal team can help you secure the financial means that you need to recoup, recover, and find relief.

Why is mesothelioma so prevalent in Texas?

Historically, asbestos was used in construction and industrial sites for its fire-resistant and insulation properties. Because Texas is home to many oil refineries and shipyards that have utilized asbestos, occupational exposure has increased and has since spread to people living in the vicinity of industrial sites.

The first asbestos lawsuit to ever be filed involved a shipyard and oil refinery worker along the Texas-Louisiana border. Asbestos-related injury and disease continues to be a tremendous issue for many workers in Galveston. Though federal regulations and state laws have been put into place to reduce or completely eliminate asbestos exposure, countless Texan workers seek legal recourse after contracting mesothelioma cancer or asbestosis.

Call our firm if you have contracted mesothelioma or asbestosis due to exposure to asbestos in any of the following industries:

  • Construction
  • Manufacturing
  • Shipbuilding
  • Automotive
  • Mining
  • Coal
  • Paint

Do you think you may be at risk of asbestos exposure? It is encouraged that you seek an immediate medical evaluation from your doctor or physician.

Mesothelioma is an Incurable Disease

Unfortunately, many of the early indications of mesothelioma are so mild that many people will not even notice the symptoms. Some may even assume that the symptoms they are experiencing are related to other things, such as lack of sleep or a mild flu. Most will only begin to experience serious symptoms in the later stages when the cancer sets in.

If you have begun to experience any of the following symptoms, it is advised that you seek medical treatment before it's too late:

  • Extreme fatigue, loss of appetite
  • Tumor-like protrusions in the chest or torso area
  • Shortness of breath, wheezing, or heavy breathing
  • Persistent cough, or coughing blood
  • Extreme or sudden unexplained weight loss
  • Bowel obstruction
  • Chronic pain
  • Swelling or fluid buildup

Treatment for mesothelioma can be incredibly life-changing. Though specialists and surgeons have been trained to provide patients with the highest degree of care, many people will still experience significant discomfort, physical pain, and emotional trauma. In most cases, mesothelioma can only be treated by surgical means, chemotherapy, or radiation therapy. These treatments have shown a significant improvement in patient survival rates. However, there is still no cure for mesothelioma cancer.
