Mesothelioma Attorney in Phoenix
No one ever wants to walk into a doctor's office and leave with a positive mesothelioma diagnosis. Similarly, no one ever wants to lose their loved one to this disease. Sadly, that's the reality for many individuals and families in Phoenix.
Even more disappointing is that, in most cases, asbestos exposure can be avoided by taking the right steps. Unfortunately, there are times when this exposure occurs because someone puts profits over human lives.
Our Phoenix mesothelioma lawyer wants to confront these parties on your behalf. The goal is to obtain the kind of compensation that will cover your medical bills and other related expenses and make you feel whole again.

What Products May Contain Asbestos?
You'd be surprised by the range of everyday products that might contain asbestos. That's despite the nationwide ban on numerous asbestos-containing products over three decades ago.
Older insulation materials used in homes and buildings, roofing shingles, and tiles are known to contain a certain degree of asbestos. This mineral was also commonly used in vehicle brake pads and linings, clutch parts, and gaskets.
Some older household items like certain heat-resistant fabrics, fireproofing materials, and even some floor tiles could also contain asbestos.
What Places May Contain Asbestos?
Today, asbestos can still be found in many places, especially in older buildings. Common spots include industrial sites like factories, shipyards, and construction sites. Asbestos concentration is especially higher in older structures.
Schools and public buildings constructed before the 1980s might also contain asbestos materials. The same applies to homes built before this time. They may have insulation, roofing, and flooring that contain this carcinogen.
What Are Some Signs of Mesothelioma?
The signs of mesothelioma can be quite subtle at first. In most cases, they often resemble common illnesses, and that's why it's not that easy to tell you're infected during the early stages.
Common symptoms include but are not limited to:
- shortness of breath;
- persistent cough;
- chest or abdominal pain;
- unexplained weight loss; and
- fatigue or lumps under the skin on the chest.
If you've had exposure to asbestos and notice these symptoms, you should get checked by a doctor right away. While at it, remember to mention your history of asbestos exposure.
How Long After Exposure to Asbestos Do Mesothelioma Symptoms Begin to Show?
Mesothelioma has a notoriously long latency period. What this means is that it takes quite a long period, usually decades, to begin showing its symptoms. This delay can make both diagnosis and linking the disease to asbestos exposure challenging.
Does Mesothelioma Have a Cure?
Currently, there's no known cure for mesothelioma. That also explains why it's such a serious illness. However, treatments (when started immediately after diagnosis) can help manage symptoms and potentially extend life expectancy.
What Are Some Possible Treatments for Mesothelioma?
Speaking of treatment, you may need a combination of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. The specific approach depends on the stage of the disease and the patient's overall health. Newer treatments, like immunotherapy, are also being explored but aren't as popular as the other three we've mentioned.
