West Palm Beach Asbestos Exposure Attorney
A cancer of the abdomen and lungs, mesothelioma is caused by asbestos exposure. It is a disease that's hard to diagnose in its early stages, when symptoms, typically, do not appear. But ultimately it is fatal. Mesothelioma doesn't occur overnight, but typically from significant, repeated contact with asbestos, a fire-retardant substance that had long been used in the United States, most prominently in the construction and automotive industries. Asbestos could be found in thousands of products, from insulation to floor tiles. In the 1970s, the Environmental Protection Agency – citing health concerns – prohibited further use of the material. But the asbestos that was already out in the world was still unregulated. Asbestos doesn't just have medical consequences; its effects can be devastating financially and emotionally. That's why it is critical to seek not only the proper medical attention, but legal advice, as well. An experienced lawyer can evaluate your case and may be able to recover medical expenditures and other damages. Dangerous products like asbestos can have dire consequences. But with a skilled, determined counsel who understands both the law and the nuances of these cases, you can fight back, and obtain the compensation – and the accountability – you deserve.
