What is Asbestos?
Asbestos is a fibrous substance used in a wide range of products in various industries including:
- Boilers, turbines and transformers
- Industrial plants
- Shipyards and Navy ships
- Construction and demolition
- Home and remodeling
Asbestos is durable and fire resistant. It was initially used as an insulating product in manufacturing and in products such as sheetrock and automobile brakes. Any amount of exposure can result in mesothelioma.
What are the Symptoms of Mesothelioma?
Mesothelioma symptoms include shortness of breath, severe cough or chest pains. They may not appear for more than 20 years after exposure. The longer a victim is left untreated, the more complicated their treatment may become and the lower their chance of survival.
Can Mesothelioma be Treated?
Treatment options vary depending on the stage of mesothelioma. While there are treatment options available, most mesothelioma cases result in a poor prognosis. If you or someone you love has contracted mesothelioma, contact an attorney as soon as possible to protect your rights and pursue a mesothelioma claim.
