Jacksonville Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is a rare yet deadly form of cancer that occurs typically as a result of exposure to asbestos. It can affect the lungs, the abdominal cavity, and the heart. Even though asbestos was linked to cancer as far back as the 1920s, manufacturers continued to use it until the mid-1970s.

The Jacksonville region was a hotbed for asbestos for decades, with the shipbuilding industry alone requiring tons of the mineral. Are you or someone in your family suffering from mesothelioma because of exposure to asbestos? You may be eligible for compensation for your illness.

Our mesothelioma lawyers are dedicated to fighting for your rights and the rights of your family. We offer a free case evaluation to get you started.

Mesothelioma Questions & Answers

  • What types of workers were typically exposed to asbestos? A wide range of manufacturers used asbestos in their products. Just a short list of victims includes mechanics, carpenters, drywall workers, shipyard workers, insulators, welders, plumbers, pipe fitters, electricians, and roofers. In addition, family members were often affected because workers brought home asbestos particles on their clothing.
  • What are the symptoms of mesothelioma? Symptoms include difficulty breathing, shortness of breath, pain in chest or abdominal areas, weight loss, fluid in the chest cavity — as diagnosed by a physician.
  • How long does it take symptoms to manifest? Unlike most on-the-job injuries, mesothelioma takes years to show up. The dormancy period is typically from 35 to 40 years, but can be as short as 15 and as long as 50.
  • What are my treatment options? Depending on your particular situation, there are several options. The stage of your illness will affect your prognosis. Typically, mesothelioma is treated with surgery (if caught early), radiation, or chemotherapy. Pain management and home care are used in later stages.
