St. Louis Mesothelioma Attorney
Have you been diagnosed with mesothelioma?
Mesothelioma affects several thousand individuals each year; it is 3% of all cancer diagnoses. It is a rare form of cancer which develops in the protective lining that covers many of the body's internal organs and is caused by exposure to asbestos dust and particles. The diagnosis is very similar to symptoms of other cancers and can take more than twenty years for the cancer to develop. If you or a family member has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, contact a St. Louis personal injury lawyer immediately to discuss your legal options.
Many manufacturing companies have known about the hazards of asbestos for many years. Some halted the use of asbestos while other companies refused to acknowledge the findings for fear of profit loss. This diagnosis affects an entire family. Loss of income, medical expenses not covered by health insurance, and the mental trauma can be overwhelming. Many of our veterans during military service were exposed to asbestos because prior to the hazard discovery in 1970, it was highly regarded for heat resistance and fireproofing capabilities. Today we know the horrors of the illness caused by asbestos and if you have been wrongfully injured by something of this nature, it is in your family's best interest to seek legal advice regarding compensation.
