Mesothelioma: A slow-developing disease that may be work-related

Many readers in South Carolina know what it's like to feel a bit off in relation to their overall health conditions, but unable to place their fingers on the exact causes of their problems. Some suspect their feelings of fatigue, nagging coughs or chest pains have something to do with their working environments. In fact, many people currently suffer from mesothelioma or other respiratory illnesses and cancers that are direct results of having been exposed to asbestos on the job.

As in any health-related situation, it's imperative to seek medical attention when symptoms suggest underlying illness. The problem with asbestos-related diseases, however, is that most are slow-developing. Symptoms may not be apparent until 10 years or more following initial exposures to asbestos.

Regardless of timing involved, if a person who has worked around asbestos-laden products thinks his or her ill-health is related to the job, that person can seek guidance from an attorney experienced in asbestos litigation. Sadly, treatment for illnesses such as asbestosis or mesothelioma tend to be palliative in nature because there are currently no known cures for these diseases. Ongoing medical care is quite expensive, and many patients are unprepared to meet such expenses.

Richardson, Patrick, Westbrook & Brickman, LLC, in South Carolina, can help you protect your rights in seeking compensation for damages related to mesothelioma or other illness caused by asbestos exposure. We believe in helping our clients obtain economically feasible assistance; this is why we provide asbestos litigation services on a contingent basis, meaning you do not have to pay us anything until we secure compensation in court on your behalf. If you would like to discuss a particular situation, you may use the contact form on our website to request a consultation.
