Asbestos Claims Lawyer

What is asbestos? Asbestos is a fibrous material that has been proven to be significantly harmful to the human body. While it was avidly used in the past, its health side effects have quickly become apparent. These findings resulted in the exponential decline of asbestos use in America. Although asbestos has rarely been used since the 1970’s, its impact has continued to affect the health of individuals across the country. Thousands of claims have been filed, but not all claims are successful. That is why if you need an asbestos lawyer in the Frankford or Philadelphia area, you need to call an experienced mesothelioma attorney like Randy H. Kaplan.

What Causes Mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma is the medical term used to identify a cancer in the mesothelium, which is a protective membrane in charge of lining the majority of our internal organs. The cause of mesothelioma is often the presence of asbestos; a minuscule fiber that can be unknowingly inhaled and swallowed. As a matter of fact, over 70% of mesothelioma cases are linked back to asbestos found in the workplace. However, some mesothelioma cases are linked back to genetics, viruses, and radiation.

What are the Symptoms of Mesothelioma?

In order for an individual to develop mesothelioma by the inhalation of asbestos, they would need to be subjected to the fibrous material for decades on end. Those with mesothelioma can experience the following:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Recurring chest pains
  • Fever
  • Weight Loss
  • Anemia
  • Constipation
  • Cough
  • Facial Swelling
  • Chest Pains
  • Sweating
  • Lumps Under the Chest
  • Pain Under Ribcage and Surrounding Areas

How Can Mesothelioma be Treated?

Due to mesothelioma being a rare type of cancer, there are not many treatment options available. The average life expectancy for someone who has been diagnosed with mesothelioma is 12 to 21 months. However, should an individual catch their cancer at an early stage, they might qualify for a surgical treatment. Successful treatments can increase one’s life expectancy by an average of 5 years. While there are many emerging mesothelioma treatments, they can be expensive to receive, which is why making an asbestos claim and seeking proper compensation is encouraged.
