These are specific locations where one or more of our asbestos injury clients worked or a site where asbestos product manufacturers have admitted their asbestos-containing products or materials were used.
If you or a loved one worked at either of these locations over 20 years ago you may have been exposed to asbestos because the science wasn’t around to warn workers that exposure could be detrimental to workers health and therefore no safety equipment was ever used.
Alex Hernandez Jr. used to defend companies who produced asbestos until the disease affected someone he knew and it changed him to now represent those affected by the latent disease of Mesothelioma.
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
