Mesothelioma / Asbestos Exposure

Mobile, AL mesothelioma lawyer fighting for workers' rights

Exposure to asbestos can cause serious, long-term health problems. That's why many buildings are no longer insulated with this hazardous, fire-retardant material linked to mesothelioma and other life-threatening health conditions caused by asbestos exposure.

Unfortunately, the harmful effects of asbestos exposure were not fully understood years ago. As a result, many retired construction workers, electricians, plumbers and other people who worked in older buildings decades ago unknowingly breathed in harmful asbestos fibers.

However you or a loved one developed mesothelioma, get the medical attention you deserve for your workplace accident injury. Don't hesitate ... Call Dean Waite.

What is Mesothelioma?

Mesothelioma is a form of cancer often caused by exposure to asbestos. In particular, mesothelioma patients are at risk of developing lung cancer due to breathing in asbestos dust while working in older homes and removing asbestos used to insulate walls and pipes.

When people breathe in asbestos fibers, these small particles sometimes attach themselves to the mesothelial tissue on the interior walls of the lungs. Over time, these asbestos fibers can cause damage to cells in the lungs, resulting in the growth of cancerous tumors.

Mesothelioma can develop decades after asbestos exposure. In some cases, lung cancer caused by asbestos exposure can develop 20 to 50 years after someone first breathed in such harmful materials.

What are common symptoms of mesothelioma?

Symptoms of mesothelioma often cover a wide range. Consult with your doctor immediately if you believe you were exposed to asbestos at work or if you experience any of the following symptoms:

  • Chest pain or tightness
  • Chronic wheezing or coughing
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Excessive tiredness
  • Pain in the chest or abdomen
  • Shortness of breath
  • Unexplained weight loss
