Jackson Mesothelioma

Exposure to asbestos is the only known cause of mesothelioma. Mississippi, because of its proximity to the Gulf of Mexico, is home to major shipyards and oil production sites that present asbestos contamination concerns. To compound matters, the wreckage brought about by Hurricane Katrina exposed many residents and first responders to asbestos fibers. Chances are, in the years to come, many more Mississippi residents will be diagnosed with mesothelioma on account of being subjected to the toxic mineral.

If you were exposed to asbestos and received a mesothelioma diagnosis, you may be entitled to receive significant financial compensation in a mesothelioma claim. At Morgan & Morgan, our Mississippi mesothelioma lawyers fight on behalf of the victims of this aggressive and deadly form of cancer.

Asbestos in Mississippi

In most cases, people who are diagnosed with mesothelioma have been exposed to asbestos repeatedly on the job. Although the dangers of asbestos have been well known for years, that hasn’t stopped asbestos products from being used in the workplace. Mississippi is home to a variety of industries that relied heavily on asbestos, including:

  • Oil refineries
  • Power plants
  • Shipbuilding
  • Manufacturing
  • Plumbing
  • Welding
  • Dock work
  • Chemical plants

Signs of Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma often doesn’t manifest for decades after exposure to asbestos. What’s more, symptoms of mesothelioma are often nonspecific and mimic those of other, less serious respiratory illnesses. In the initial stages of mesothelioma, you might experience:

  • Dry coughing
  • Wheezing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest or abdominal pain

As the cancer progresses, you might experience:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Anemia
  • Increased chest or abdominal pain
  • Extreme fatigue

If you notice any of these symptoms, it’s worth getting tested for mesothelioma as soon as possible.

How a Mesothelioma Lawyer Can Help

Mesothelioma claims are intended to help the victims of asbestos exposure and their families recover damages following a diagnosis. Claims can fall into one of two types:

  • Personal injury claims filed by people who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma.
  • Wrongful death claims filed by family members of someone who has passed away.

Be sure to contact a mesothelioma lawyer at Morgan & Morgan right away. You may be able to recover compensation to cover the many costs associated with the disease.
