Mesothelioma Excellent Legal Representation Prioritizing You & Your Needs

Rhode Island Mesothelioma Lawyer

You May Have Been Exposed to Asbestos

Until the 1970s, asbestos was widely used to produce a large variety of consumer products. While this fiber had multiple benefits, it also had a devastating downside. It was discovered that asbestos caused mesothelioma, a deadly form of lung cancer with no known cure. While the use of asbestos has been drastically reduced, the effects are still showing up in exposed workers to this day.

If you or a loved one has been exposed to asbestos and suffered from mesothelioma, or other related injuries, speaking with an experienced Rhode Island mesothelioma lawyer is important. Especially if you’ve been exposed to asbestos while on the job, a knowledgeable attorney can help you navigate the often-complicated legal system and help you seek the compensation you need for medical treatment. Similarly, if you’ve been exposed to asbestos while on someone else’s property or while visiting a business, one of our Rhode Island asbestos lawyers can also help you.

What is Mesothelioma?

Many people have heard the name “mesothelioma” before but are unaware that it is an aggressive type of cancer. This cancer most often occurs in the mesothelium, or the layer of tissue covering the majority of our internal organs. While there are treatments for mesothelioma, this cancer is particularly aggressive and for many, remission or a cure is not possible.

Symptoms of mesothelioma include:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Painful coughing
  • Chest pain, specifically under the rib cage
  • Lumps of tissue under the skin on your chest or in the abdominal area
  • Abdominal pain and/or swelling
  • Unexplained weight loss

Exposure to asbestos has been identified as a primary risk factor for mesothelioma, and because asbestos was used so extensively in many different products, from housing insulation to car brakes, people who work around these products often become exposed to dangerous asbestos dust.

Longshore workers who work for or previously worked for the company Electric Boat have been coming forward with asbestos injury claims in recent years. Our firm has particular experience with this niche of asbestos injury and can provide you with the knowledgeable assistance you need.
