Mesothelioma and Asbestos Lawyers St. Louis

Mesothelioma Lawyers in St. Louis. Asbestos is a naturally occurring fiber that can be found in several common places, such as older homes, areas with lots of rocks and soil, and in some asbestos-containing products such as insulation and flooring. While small amounts of asbestos aren’t toxic, inhaling asbestos regularly has been linked to mesothelioma, an aggressive form of cancer. An estimated 3,000 people are diagnosed with mesothelioma every year in the United States, with 70% to 80% of conditions caused by long-term asbestos exposure.

Symptoms of Mesothelioma | Missouri Asbestos Attorneys

Mesothelioma is generally caused by asbestos exposure but can be caused by factors such as smoking, radiation from past conditions such as lymphoma, and genetics. Symptoms of mesothelioma are often delayed and don’t present themselves for up to 20 to 50 years after exposure to asbestos, but once mesothelioma is diagnosed, victims typically have a 2-year survival rate, with the 5-year outlook being 10%.

There are four types of mesothelioma; pleural (lungs), peritoneal (abdominal), pericardial (heart), and testicular. Commonly reported symptoms in Missouri mesothelioma claims include:

  • Dry cough or wheezing
  • Respiratory issues
  • Trouble breathing
  • Severe pain or fatigue
  • In pleural mesothelioma, fluid in the lungs

If you think that you were exposed to asbestos, you need to seek immediate medical attention from a doctor. If mesothelioma and other asbestos-related cancers are caught in early stages, specific treatments, such as chemotherapy and radiation, surgery, and medications, can increase a person’s survival rate. However, medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages can be challenging for victims to cope with while in such a poor state. Consulting an experienced attorney and filing a mesothelioma and asbestos claim in St. Louis can make it more feasible for victims to afford treatment and recoup harm and losses, such as pain and suffering and lost wages related to their condition.

St. Louis Mesothelioma and Asbestos Settlement Lawyers

In addition to mesothelioma, asbestos victims can suffer from non-cancerous diseases such as asbestosis, pleural effusion (built-up fluid in the lungs), and pleural effusion (excess abdominal fluid), which while non-malignant, can cause severe pain and other side effects.

If you are suffering from mesothelioma of the lungs, stomach, heart, or testicular area, you could be entitled to a mesothelioma and asbestos settlement in Missouri. Damages typically include medical expenses, emotional distress, lost wages, and property damage, but the recoverable amount varies from case to case. Christopher Dixon and the St. Louis Asbestos Lawyers at the Dixon Injury Firm are committed to fighting for justice and compensation for Missouri injury claims and offering support to asbestos victims and their family members during this challenging time.

If you are ready to discuss your Missouri mesothelioma and asbestos claim with an experienced attorney and determine how much compensation you can recover for damages, call (314) 409-7060, 855-40-2724 (toll-free), or contact the Dixon Injury Firm now for a free consultation.
