Mesothelioma is a form of cancer that stems from exposure to asbestos, which is a material that was once widely used in many different industries and many different uses. Asbestos was once heralded as a wonder material because of its amazing heat and fire resistant properties, coupled with its cost effectiveness. Most people were unaware of the dangers associated with exposure to asbestos until around the 1970s and 1980s, which is when the risks of exposure to airborne asbestos dust and fibers became widely known. After this time, strict regulations were put in to place with regards to using and working with asbestos, but for many people, it was too late.
Prior to the 19780s and 1980s, many people worked with asbestos on a daily basis in the Alabama area without the protection necessary to protect them from exposure. These people suffered high level and long-term exposure to asbestos, and in some industries they were even required to wear clothing made from asbestos to protect them from heat and fire. It is now known that exposure to asbestos dust and fibers can result in health problems, such as respiratory diseases, scarring of the lungs, and the incurable cancer known as mesothelioma.
Mesothelioma can affect the heart, lung, or abdominal region, and this form of cancer can take several decades to manifest from the time of exposure. This means that people in Alabama who suffered exposure to asbestos several decades ago may have only recently developed this cancer or may not even know that they have the cancer. For those who have developed mesothelioma, there is legal assistance available.
If you have developed mesothelioma, you should contact an Alabama mesothelioma lawyer/attorney as soon as possible to get compensation for your injuries. An experienced and specialist Alabama mesothelioma lawyer/attorney could get you compensation for pain and suffering, as well as economic damages, which can help to pay for medical costs and secure your family’s financial future.
