Asbestos Mesothelioma

Were You Exposed to Asbestos?

Talk to our Corpus Christi injury attorney!

Asbestos minerals have been found on construction sites and building projects, particular in many older buildings. These minerals are quite fibrous and stand up well to heat, and they are nearly indestructible as well as fireproof. They have been used in the past as a form of insulation.

These are some examples of where asbestos has been commonly found:

  • Shipbuilding projects
  • Plastic manufacturing
  • Gardening products
  • Paint, coating, adhesives
  • Construction
  • Automotive manufacturing

Unfortunately, past generations had little education about the dangers of using asbestos and the risks it places on workers. It can also be harmful to those who live in proximity to construction sites or old buildings that have had their structures stripped, leaving asbestos in the air.

Our Corpus Christ injury attorneys are committed to aggressive representation for those who became ill due to asbestos exposure. If you believe you were exposed, call Daspit Law Firm at any time to schedule an appointment!

How does asbestos exposure lead to mesothelioma?

The fibers found in asbestos materials can easily separate and float around in the air. Once this has been breathed in, these fibers can bury itself within the membrane of the lungs—the mesothelium.

Once a person is exposed to asbestos, it can as few as 10 years all the way up to 50 years before the person begins noticing the any symptoms. Asbestos has been linked to causing the life-threatening cancer, mesothelioma, which primarily affects the lungs and the respiratory system.

The problem with mesothelioma is that it is not always detected right away. Some of the early symptoms, such as chest pain, chronic cough, pain in the chest, can often be misdiagnosed as another type of illness. Furthermore, many of the symptoms do not begin to surface until long after the disease has taken hold, and doctors may not have realized the severity of the problem.

If you have suffered, call us now!

When asbestos exposure leads to mesothelioma, you may be able to sue your or your loved one’s former employer due wrongful death, chemical exposure, or for violations of safety in the workplace. Because mesothelioma cases can take years to arise, and the litigation process can be a lengthy process, it is important that you seek the guidance of a Corpus Christ injury lawyer as soon as possible to see if you have a case.

You can depend on Daspit Law Firm to advocate for your best interests. Call us now to begin!

Clients Are Saying

  • Thank you so much Daspit!!

    “Thank you so much Daspit!! You made the accident that I was in not so traumatizing. When I was hit by a person who was not from Houston and did not know downtown well he at first was sorry and admitted it was his fault until the cops showed up. From that point on I was in a panic until I entered your office and you guided me through.I recommend Daspit to anyone who wants to be treated with compassion and needs true guidance through the law.”
