What are asbestos-related illnesses?

People who have been exposed to asbestos are at a serious risk of health conditions that are the direct result of that exposure. While asbestos exposure is associated with a variety of medical conditions, including colon cancer, lung cancer, and asbestosis, many people think of mesothelioma when they hear about someone being exposed to asbestos.

We understand the devastation that asbestos-related illnesses can have on a victim and the victim's family members. The person who has the illness often has to cope with symptoms like severe pain and shortness of breath. The patient's family members have to watch their loved one suffer from the symptoms.

In the case of mesothelioma and asbestosis, the only known cause of this devastating illnesses is asbestos exposure. The tiny asbestos fibers that are inhaled when the substance is moved around are microscopic. That means that a person can inhale asbestos without ever realizing that they have been placed in danger.

Colon cancer and lung cancer might be caused by other factors. Asbestosis isn't usually as severe as mesothelioma. Asbestosis is a chronic lung illness that is the result of scarring on the lungs caused by irritation of asbestos fibers.

Mesothelioma is a form of cancer. There are different types of mesothelioma, including pleural, pericardial, peritoneal, and mesothelioma of tunica vaginalis. Each of those types affects a different part of the body -- the lungs, the heart cavity, the abdomen, and the testes, respectively.

We know that facing the prospect of a life that is full of suffering and medical care. Seeking compensation won't help you to cope with your symptoms. It won't help your family members to cope with seeing you suffer. Compensation can help you to get the care you need. We can help you learn your options for seeking compensation for any asbestos-related illness.
