Boston Mesothelioma

Once thought to be the ideal building material due to its strength and insulation, asbestos was widely used in Massachusetts and across the United States for decades. However, it eventually became apparent that the mineral is responsible for serious illnesses, including mesothelioma — an aggressive and deadly form of cancer.

Although asbestos was largely phased out around the 1980s, it remains trapped in homes, schools, offices, and other buildings to this day. Disturbing these structures, whether through demolition or renovation, releases fibers of the mineral into the air. These endanger anyone in the vicinity who might inhale them. Meanwhile, people who worked with asbestos decades ago are still being diagnosed with mesothelioma to this day due to its long latency period.

If you were diagnosed with this devastating disease, contact the Boston mesothelioma attorneys at Morgan & Morgan. You may be eligible for significant compensation through a mesothelioma claim. Here’s what you need to know:

Mesothelioma: An Overview

Malignant mesothelioma is a deadly type of cancer that affects the lining of the lungs, abdomen, heart, or testes. It has only one cause: exposure to asbestos. That means people who work or used to work in certain professions are at an increased risk for the disease. These include:

  • Shipbuilders
  • Miners
  • Construction workers
  • Manufacturers
  • Plumbers
  • Welders
  • Roofers
  • First responders
  • Military veterans

Mesothelioma Symptoms

The symptoms of mesothelioma vary depending on the stage of the disease and what part of the body it affects. Early on, coughing, chest or abdominal pain, and shortness of breath are common. In the later stages, pain typically intensifies. Often, patients lose large amounts of weight and find it difficult to breathe.

Mesothelioma Treatments

Sadly, malignant mesothelioma has no cure. However, there are treatment options available that can prolong your life. These include chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and surgery. Typically, the earlier the disease is diagnosed, the more treatment options are available and the longer your life expectancy will be. That’s why it’s important to get tested if you notice any symptoms.

Mesothelioma Claims

Mesothelioma claims are for protecting your family’s financial future and obtaining justice. At Morgan & Morgan, we believe the price of pain is infinite. However, by taking legal action, you may be able to hold the responsible parties accountable and offset costs relating to the disease. These include lost wages, medical bills, pain and suffering, and more.
