The San Francisco Bay area mesothelioma attorneys of Mary Alexander & Associates is fully aware of the dangers that asbestos exposure can cause.
San Francisco, California (MesotheliomaCancerNews.Com) — Exposure to asbestos wreaks havoc on the lives of the individual that affected as well as the friends and loves ones that care about them. As one of the most unique types of cancer, mesothelioma is a disease where malignant cells develop in the protective lining of organs such as the lungs and heart
Although most mesothelioma patients contract the particles by inhalation, family members can also be exposed to it by washing the clothes of a family member who worked with asbestos. Needless to say, asbestos is tricky to capture and tricky to treat.
The San Francisco Bay area mesothelioma attorneys of Mary Alexander & Associates is fully aware of the dangers that asbestos exposure can cause. Still, for decades after learning of these risks, many manufacturers and employers still neglect to implement safety measures that would offer protection against mesothelioma.
According to the official website of Mary Alexander & Associates, “While many mesothelioma lawsuits have been filed — and billions of dollars in damages paid — most victims have not brought suit. Indeed, a 2002 study by the RAND Institute for Civil Justice estimated that by the end of 2000, at most only one-half of all potential claimants had come forward. One reason for this is the long period of time — often 20 to 50 years — that can pass between exposure to asbestos and signs of mesothelioma. “
Unfortunately, diagnosis of mesothelioma can prove to be difficult since symptoms are similar to those of other conditions including:
* Shortness of breath
* Coughing, wheezing, or hoarseness
* Chest pain
* Weight loss
* Abdominal swelling
* Bowel obstruction
* Anemia or fatigue
* Trouble swallowing or swelling of the neck or face
