South Carolina Mesothelioma Lawyers
Asbestos is a heat-resistant fiber used as an insulation and fire-retardant. Exposure to the material is prevalent in the construction and manufacturing industries. However, workers in other job fields may come in contact with asbestos if it is present in the buildings in which they work. If workers inhale asbestos, the fibers may build up in their lungs and lead to lung disease, such as mesothelioma.
Causes and Symptoms of Mesothelioma
Mesothelioma is a form of cancer that develops in the mesothelium, which is a thin layer of tissue that covers internal organs. Exposure to asbestos is a primary factor for mesothelioma. Symptoms of the disease are based on the location of the cancer. Most common symptoms include, but are not limited to:
- Chest pain
- Shortness of breath
- Abdominal pain
- Unexplained weight loss
South Carolina Mesothelioma lawsuits and compensation
If you or your loved one was exposed to asbestos in the workplace and received a diagnosis of mesothelioma, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries, medical expenses and lost wages. You can bring an asbestos claim under The Asbestos and Silica Claims Procedure Act of 2006. However, you must have medical evidence that you were diagnosed with mesothelioma, and the exposure to asbestos caused it. Compensation under the Act for you or your loved one’s damages may include medical bills, lost wages, and lost consortium.
Lawsuits are time-consuming and complicated. Mesothelioma cases require an extensive understanding and application of laws, science and medicine. It is best to hire an attorney to handle your case.
