When Is the Best Time To Hire a Mesothelioma Attorney?

The best time to hire a mesothelioma attorney is now.

We represent mesothelioma victims nationwide and have been handling mesothelioma cases since our inception.

Almost always fatal, mesothelioma—caused by exposure to asbestos—could have been entirely preventable if the proper precautions would have been met. Asbestos companies knew for decades that their products could cause disease but they concealed the risks, putting millions at risk for developing mesothelioma and other diseases.

Mesothelioma is a Latent Disease Manifesting Much Later Than the Actual Exposure

Now decades later people who worked around asbestos are getting 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

  • Fatigue

If you or a loved one have had a history of asbestos exposure, any of these symptoms should be reported to your doctor immediately. Your doctor can perform the necessary imaging tests and biopsies. Mesothelioma is incurable, but the earlier it is diagnosed, the more treatment options a patient has.

Asbestos claims 12,000-15,000 lives per year in the U.S., including approximately 3,000 per year due to mesothelioma. We handle many of these cases nationwide.
