Asbestos & Mesothelioma
North Georgia Asbestos & Mesothelioma Lawyers
Asbestos and mesothelioma-related lawsuits are some of the most common personal injury lawsuits. They are filed against the parties liable for a patient’s exposure and resulting diagnosis.
What is asbestos?
Asbestos is a mineral and carcinogen that has been used in manufacturing for products such as flame-retardant materials, electrical wiring, drywall, insulation, flooring, roofing, and much more since the 1800s. In the 1930s, manufacturers recognized asbestos’ ability to cause lung cancer with prolonged exposure. The most common type is mesothelioma.
What is mesothelioma?
Mesothelioma is a type of lung cancer. The symptoms include chest pain, wheezing, coughing with blood, hoarseness, blood clots, anemia, shortness of breath, weight loss, and fluid in the lungs. Men 50+ years of age are most likely to be diagnosed.
This sickness is often found in people who have worked in an asbestos mine, a factory that manufactured asbestos-related products, a construction business in which one installed or removed asbestos or in those who have lived in a town with an asbestos mine. If you are experiencing these symptoms, you should see a doctor immediately. Asbestos poisoning may not become apparent until decades after exposure.
