Locations for Mesothelioma Exposure:

A few notable locations of asbestos exposure are Coastal Corp. Refinery and Sun Oil.  There are a few others but most victims in the Corpus Christi area worked at many areas throughout their work life.

Asbestos exposure has been linked to the development of serious respiratory diseases and cancers, including mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis, and other conditions. Asbestos exposure is most commonly related to occupational, environmental and secondhand factors.

For nearly 100 years, it was one of the most commonly used materials in industries such as construction, shipbuilding and manufacturing.

It wasn’t until the mid-20th century that researchers officially established the connection between asbestos exposure and serious respiratory conditions, by then, millions of workers had already been exposed in the workplace and in other locations. While federal asbestos exposure limits were imposed in 1972, an estimated 10,000 people in the United States continue to pass away each year from related illnesses. Corpus Christi mesothelioma lawyer Alex R. Hernandez Jr. handles asbestos claims and related illness lawsuits.

Mesothelioma is difficult to diagnose, due to the disease’s long latency period — sometimes, the onset of symptoms can come 50 years after the initial asbestos exposure. Many workers don’t get sick until they are retired and have not been exposed to asbestos for many years. Mesothelioma is also difficult to diagnose because its symptoms can resemble common, less severe respiratory illnesses.

The symptoms of mesothelioma include:

  • Chest pain and persistent cough
  • Shortness of breath and painful breathing
  • Loss of appetite and unexplained weight loss
  • Fluid accumulation around the lungs
  • Fatigue

If you or a loved one was exposed to asbestos at a Corpus Christi location or anywhere else in the country you may have a claim. $30 billion has been set aside for victims of asbestos and mesothelioma victims. Alex R. Hernandez Jr. can help see if you qualify for these funds. Call him today 888-HDZ-LAW8.
