Asbestos Lawyers Explain The Link Between Asbestos & Mesothelioma, Austin, Texas

Every year, thousands of Americans are diagnosed with mesothelioma, a type of cancer resulting from exposure to asbestos. This cancer, which develops in the lining of the lungs, called the mesothelium, has no known cure, although there are several treatment regimens available. In the decades since use of asbestos in consumer products has been largely abandoned because of the health hazard posted by asbestos dust, the asbestos industry has been held legally and financially responsible for the devastating health consequences people have suffered from exposure to their products. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, contact an experienced mesothelioma lawyer like Hendler Lyons Flores to explore your options.

People can develop mesothelioma at any age, even if exposure to asbestos occurred as many as 50 years ago. Because mesothelioma is a form of lung cancer, it shares many early symptoms with other types of lung cancer: chest pain/shortness of breath, fluid in the lungs, coughing blood, and loss of appetite, among others. Other indications might include swelling or numbness in your face, changes in your voice, joint pain, weakness, or difficulty swallowing. Only medical testing by a doctor can definitively diagnose mesothelioma, but if you have a history of asbestos exposure, don't hesitate to visit your doctor if you have these symptoms.

The mesothelioma lawyers at Hendler Lyons Flores have successfully battled the asbestos industry in courts across the country, winning financial compensation for illness, lost wages, and wrongful death for hundreds of innocent people. If you or a loved one was exposed to asbestos or has developed mesothelioma, schedule a consultation with us by calling (512) 439-3202. You can learn more at our Mesothelioma Resource Web Site.
