What Is Asbestos?
Asbestos is a group of naturally occurring fibrous minerals used in various industries for its resistance to heat, electricity, and chemical corrosion. Commonly used in building materials, automotive parts, and some consumer goods, its fibers are hazardous when inhaled, leading to serious health issues.
How Does Asbestos Cause Mesothelioma?
Asbestos causes mesothelioma by its tiny fibers becoming airborne and then inhaled or ingested. Over time, these fibers accumulate in the lining of the lungs, abdomen, or heart, causing inflammation and genetic damage, which can lead to the development of mesothelioma, a form of cancer.
How Do I Know I Have Mesothelioma?
The most common mesothelioma symptoms include chest pain, shortness of breath, fluid buildup around the lungs, fatigue, and abdominal pain or swelling. Diagnosis typically involves imaging tests, blood tests, and biopsies. Due to its latency period, symptoms may appear decades after asbestos exposure.
What Should I Do After a Mesothelioma Diagnosis?
After a mesothelioma diagnosis, you should prioritize your medical care and treatment plan. Then, as soon as you’re medically able, contact Morgan and Mogan for a free case evaluation.
Suppose we find that you were exposed to asbestos due to someone else’s negligence. In that case, we may assign an experienced Kentucky asbestos lawyer to your case to guide you through the process of filing claims for compensation.
What Claims Can I File After a Mesothelioma Diagnosis?
After a mesothelioma diagnosis, you can file personal injury claims against employers or manufacturers responsible for asbestos exposure. If the patient has passed away, family members can file wrongful death claims.
These claims seek compensation for medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and loss of companionship. If you were exposed to asbestos during your time in the military, you may be able to file a veterans benefits claim with the V.A.
What if the At-Fault Party Filed for Bankruptcy?
You can still seek compensation through asbestos trust funds established during the bankruptcy proceedings. These funds are specifically set up to compensate current and future victims of asbestos exposure.
Can Asbestos Funds Get Depleted?
Yes, these funds can potentially get depleted, especially if they face a high volume of claims. This is why we recommend taking legal action as soon as possible.
