New Orleans Mesothelioma

Finding out that you have mesothelioma is life-changing. Getting the disease on account of someone else’s failure to keep you safe is unjust. The fact is, the dangers of asbestos have been well known for many decades, but companies in New Orleans and throughout Louisiana have exposed their workers to the toxic mineral regardless.

If you or someone you love has received a mesothelioma diagnosis, the Louisiana asbestos attorneys at Morgan & Morgan are ready to fight by your side. Read this Q&A to learn more about the disease and how you can secure financial compensation with our help.

What is Mesothelioma?

Malignant mesothelioma is an aggressive and deadly form of cancer that affects the lining of the lungs, abdomen, heart, or testes. Each year, approximately 3,000 Americans are diagnosed with the disease.

What Causes Mesothelioma?

There is only one cause of mesothelioma: exposure to asbestos. Certain professions put people at higher risk for the disease, including:

  • Construction
  • Manufacturing
  • Mining
  • Shipbuilding
  • Plumbing
  • Welding
  • Roofing
  • Flooring

What Are the Symptoms of Mesothelioma?

The symptoms of mesothelioma vary depending on the stage of the disease and what part of the body it’s affecting. Generally, patients in earlier stages experience coughing, chest or abdominal pain, shortness of breath, and wheezing. As the disease progresses, it’s common for pain to intensify. Patients may have difficulty breathing and lose significant amounts of weight without explanation.

Can Mesothelioma Be Cured?

Sadly, there is no cure for malignant mesothelioma. However, there are treatment options available that can help extend your life. Patients generally undergo a combination of chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and surgery. Usually, the earlier the disease is spotted, the longer your life expectancy.

What Is a Mesothelioma Claim?

A mesothelioma claim allows those with the disease to protect their family’s financial future and obtain justice. If you were exposed to asbestos on the job, you might be eligible for financial compensation to cover your lost wages, medical expenses, and more.
