Greater Detroit Area Mesothelioma Attorneys

Malignant mesothelioma is a deadly form of cancer linked directly to asbestos. It is caused by the inhalation or swallowing of asbestos fibers, which get lodged in the mesothelium and build up over time. The resulting inflammation can develop into cancer, causing debilitating disease and even death.

The danger is especially high for those who encountered asbestos on a daily basis at their job. If you were exposed to asbestos at work and developed mesothelioma, you may be entitled to compensation. To consult an attorney, contact our Greater Detroit area Morgan & Morgan team by filling out our free case evaluation form.

FAQ

Get answers to commonly asked questions about our legal services and learn how we may assist you with your case.

  • Where Can Mesothelioma Develop?

    Mesothelioma can develop in the lining of the lungs, abdomen, heart, or testes. The lungs are the most common location, followed by abdominal cases. Pericardial (heart) and testicular cases are the most rare. No matter where it is diagnosed, malignant mesothelioma is a life-threatening condition.

  • What Are the Symptoms?

    Mesothelioma is extremely dangerous, but it can take a long time for symptoms to develop and manifest. If you worked with or around asbestos, you may be at risk even if your exposure occurred years or decades ago.

    The following are some common symptoms for mesothelioma. Contact your doctor if you were exposed to asbestos and start to exhibit:

    • Chest pain
    • Coughing
    • Wheezing
    • Fluid buildup around the lungs
    • Shortness of breath
    • Abdominal pain
    • Unexplained weight loss
    • Nausea 
    • Anemia
    • Difficulty swallowing
    • Bowel changes
    • Swelling or lumps around the scrotum

    While other conditions could cause these symptoms, it’s still a good idea to talk to your doctor. The lag time between contact with asbestos and developing mesothelioma can be as much as 50 years, with people over 65 having the highest risk.

  • Which Occupations Are Most at Risk?

    The asbestos industry was aware of the risks of their product for years, and yet continued to endanger the lives and health of workers. Any asbestos exposure is dangerous, but the risk is heightened for the following occupations:

    • Miners
    • Construction workers
    • Carpenters
    • Cement workers
    • Mechanics
    • Electricians
    • Painters
    • Shipbuilders
    • Firefighters

    It’s not just the asbestos industry; many other employers knowingly exposed their workers to asbestos without warning. If you think you were exposed, get in touch with one of our Greater Detroit Morgan & Morgan lawyers to research your case.
