Asbestos Injury Lawyer in Sugar Land
Mesothelioma Attorney Helping Victims
Even though mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer, research has shown that 70% to 80% of those who suffer from it were exposed to asbestos at some point in their life. From a legal and medical standpoint, there is little debate regarding the link between asbestos and mesothelioma cancer. What is often at issue is identifying when a person was exposed and where.
At The León Law Firm, P.C., we have access to a database of asbestos manufacturers and worksites throughout the state of Texas where asbestos was used or installed. As your Sugarland personal injury attorney, we provide documentation and records verifying your exposure to the negligent parties. When medical issues are involved, Mr. León consults oncologists and mesothelioma cancer experts who can verify your medical condition and verify the connection between your exposure to asbestos and your mesothelioma cancer.
To discuss your case and how we can help you receive compensation for your condition, contact the caring mesothelioma attorneys at the firm today. We provide free consultations and work on a contingency basis.
Complications and Symptoms Associated With Mesothelioma
Since mesothelioma is a cancer of the mesothelium membrane that surrounds many of the body's internal organs, it can create a number of medical symptoms and problems including lung cancer. Symptoms most often associated with mesothelioma cancer include the following:
- Fever and sweating at night
- Chest pain
- Weight loss
- Abdominal pain and swelling in the abdominal region
- Obstruction of the bowel
- Blood clotting difficulties
- Shortness of breath
While numerous products and industrial work sites contained asbestos, the following is a short list of items that contained asbestos:
- Lining on brakes
- Floor products
- Roofing shingles
If you have mesothelioma cancer and were exposed to asbestos while working in a factory, or with any of the materials listed above, seeking medical and legal advice is important for recovering damages for your pain and suffering. Since mesothelioma can lie dormant for up to 50 years, many people aren't even aware they have grounds for legal action after they have been diagnosed.
We work closely with families and doctors in order to verify your condition and determine when and where you were exposed to asbestos. Recovering damages now can ensure you receive appropriate treatment and consideration later in your life.
