What Are the Signs of Mesothelioma?
Some of the most common signs of mesothelioma include:
- shortness of breath;
- chest pain;
- abdominal pain or swelling;
- unexplained weight loss;
- and fatigue.
That said, symptoms of this condition usually take many years to appear after asbestos exposure and can vary based on the type of mesothelioma. If you believe you might have been exposed to asbestos over a long period of time, you should get checked by a doctor to establish whether you might have contracted mesothelioma.
Is a Mesothelioma Diagnosis That Serious?
Yes, a mesothelioma diagnosis is very serious. Although it’s a rare type of cancer, it can be aggressive. The disease significantly impacts health and quality of life, often requiring extensive medical treatment.
Why Do I Need Compensation After Mesothelioma Diagnosis?
Compensation helps cover medical expenses, lost wages, and other costs related to your diagnosis. It can also provide financial security for your family and cover future treatment needs. Above all, it serves as a form of justice against negligent parties and provides a sense of closure for those who lost their loved ones due to mesothelioma.
Against Whom Do I File a Claim With?
That’s one of the things a Convington mesothelioma attorney can help you figure out. Normally, you’ll file a claim with companies responsible for the asbestos exposure. This could be past employers, manufacturers of asbestos-containing products, or other entities that failed to protect you from asbestos exposure, yet they owed you a duty of care.
What If I No Longer Work with the Company?
You can still file a claim even if you no longer work with the company where you were exposed to asbestos. Liability is based on exposure and the company's negligence, regardless of whether or not you are currently employed with them.
Besides Workers' Compensation, Where Else Can I Get Compensation From?
Apart from workers' compensation, you may seek compensation through personal injury lawsuits, wrongful death claims (if filing on behalf of a deceased loved one), or asbestos trust funds established by bankrupt companies that used asbestos.
