What Are Some Common Symptoms of Mesothelioma?
Mesothelioma can manifest several symptoms that vary depending on the type. Here's an overview of these symptoms:
- Shortness of breath
- Persistent cough
- Chest or abdominal pain
- Unexplained weight loss
- Swelling in the abdomen
- Lumps under the skin on the chest
Keep in mind that mesothelioma symptoms may resemble less severe illnesses. That's why we always recommend going for a medical checkup if you have a history of asbestos exposure and experience these symptoms.
What Jobs Are at High Risk of Asbestos Exposure?
Some jobs have historically faced a higher risk of asbestos exposure due to the nature of the work and environments involved. These jobs include but are not limited to:
- Construction workers, especially those working with older buildings
- Shipyard workers
- Industrial workers
- Auto mechanics, particularly those working with older vehicles
- Insulation manufacturers and installers
What Common Products May Contain Asbestos?
Despite modern regulations, starting with the 1989 ban on a series of products believed to contain asbestos, many older products still in use may contain asbestos. These include:
- Insulation materials in walls and attics
- Vinyl floor tiles and the backing on vinyl sheet flooring
- Roofing and siding shingles
- Textured paint and patching compounds
- Walls and floors around wood-burning stoves
- Hot water and steam pipes coated with asbestos material or covered with an asbestos blanket
- Automobile parts, including brakes and clutches
How Can I Prove My Mesothelioma Claim?
To win a mesothelioma case, you must demonstrate that your diagnosis is directly linked to asbestos exposure, typically due to someone else's negligence. A mesothelioma lawyer from Morgan and Morgan can utilize our firm's powerful legal resources to help you obtain detailed medical and employment records, expert testimony, and anything else required to strengthen your claim.
Do I Need a Lawyer If the Other Party Agrees to Settle?
Working with a lawyer is always advisable, even if the other party agrees to settle. Your attorney will ensure the settlement adequately covers all your expenses and damages and that you're not being tricked into settling for less than you deserve.
