Houston Mesothelioma Attorney
Learn About Mesothelioma Lawsuit Litigation
Scientists and health care professionals have known for years that exposure to asbestos can be dangerous or even fatal. Nonetheless, employers have continued allowing individuals to be exposed to chemicals. Auto mechanics, construction workers, shipyard workers and electricians are at the highest risk for developing asbestosis because they directly handle asbestos materials while performing their jobs.
When asbestos fibers are inhaled for an extended period, the consequences can be deadly, causing irreparable harm to the lungs and respiratory system. Although symptoms of asbestosis can take over 30 years to develop, people who exposed to asbestos for longer time periods and in areas with less ventilation often develop asbestosis or mesothelioma sooner.
What are Symptoms of Mesothelioma?
Learn About Dangers of Mesothelioma Exposure
Symptoms of asbestosis and mesothelioma include difficultly breathing, a dry cough and extensive scarring of the tissues of the lungs. When clients contact us, we have them tested with breathing tests and lung x-rays. Working with medical experts, we have proven that exposure to asbestos in the workplace has caused them to develop asbestosis or mesothelioma.
If you have recently been diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma, or if a member of your family has died of mesothelioma or another malignant cancer related to asbestos exposure, contact the Texas personal injury lawyers at Gary S. Tucker and Associates, P.C. in Houston. We represent mesothelioma victims through out the United States.
One of the main challenges in any lawsuit based on asbestos exposure is to identify and find the right defendants decades after the victim’s ingestion of the asbestos fibers. Most persons who develop malignant mesothelioma were exposed to asbestos as long as forty years prior to diagnosis. Since asbestos is the only known cause of mesothelioma, there is usually little difficulty in establishing that the victim’s illness or death was caused by the substance. However, finding a past owner of property or the successor to a defunct corporation can present real problems for the plaintiff’s attorney.
