Asbestos Exposure Attorney
Asbestos can cause cancer many years after exposure occurred. Asbestos was once widely used as a building material because the dangers of exposure were not known. Asbestos is still contained within the insulation and some of the flooring of many older buildings, so it is possible to be exposed during renovations, without great care. Asbestos can float in the air as dust, so it can be impossible to see with the naked eye. Detecting it requires specialized testing by a qualified professional. Mesothelioma can strike decades after exposure, so many people who have been exposed years ago are still being newly diagnosed. Mesothelioma is so strongly linked to asbestos that it is very rare a person would develop this type of cancer without some type of past exposure to asbestos.
The type of cancer caused by asbestos, mesothelioma, can be very deadly, and treatments are very expensive. If you have cancer you believe may have been caused by mesothelioma exposure, a mesothelioma asbestos exposure lawyer like Clinesmith Wooten Smith can help you recover costs for treatment, pain and suffering, and other damages.
If you or a loved one is diagnosed with lung cancer, the first priority is to get better. Many families wonder how they are going to pay for the extra cost of cancer treatment, especially if they are losing a family member’s income while they are undergoing treatment. A settlement can help offset these costs and ease some of the family’s worries.
If you believe you may have an asbestos exposure-related mesothelioma case, it is a good idea to set up a consultation with an asbestos lawyer. It is helpful to make a list of your medical providers with some dates of treatment so the attorney and his or her assistants can begin working on your case right away.
