Personal Injury Attorneys Share 3 Facts About Mesothelioma & Seeking Compensation, Lawrenceburg, Indiana

Many personal injury claims involve immediate injuries, making cases easy to build. However, late-onset conditions are not always recognized until it is too late. Mesothelioma, a form of tissue cancer, is derived from exposure to asbestos. The legal team at Young, Reverman & Mazzei Co., L.P.A., serving clients in southern Ohio, northern Kentucky, and southeastern Indiana, advise clients who have been exposed to asbestos to seek treatment even if they do not suspect any issues. Mesothelioma is a complicated condition, and it is important to understand the facts so you can pursue a personal injury settlement if you are at risk or suspect you have been exposed to asbestos.

3 Facts About Mesothelioma

1. On the Rise

Despite increased efforts for workplace protection against asbestos, cases of mesothelioma continue to rise. Studies show that over 125 million people have been affected, and diagnoses have increased four times since the 1980s. While your workplace may seem safe, it is imperative to know for sure, so do not hesitate to ask questions or remove yourself from suspect situations.

2. Short Survival Time

personal injuryUnlike some manageable cancers, mesothelioma takes effect quickly once it is fully developed. On average, the maximum survival time after diagnosis is 21 months. However, this is only at stage 1 diagnosis. Survival time can be as low as one year, which is why you should seek personal injury compensation immediately. An attorney will help seek a settlement for your family to ensure they are taken care of when the worst happens.

3. Late Onset

In many cases, mesothelioma symptoms do not appear for between 20 and 50 years after first exposure. Because of this, many people do not receive treatment until the condition has fully developed. If you suspect you have been working in areas with asbestos, you should receive regular health checkups for symptoms. An attorney will also provide guidance to further develop a case if warranted.

Do not let your workplace-related mesothelioma diagnosis go without compensation.
