Exposure to asbestos and other toxic products can lead to serious lung diseases and cancers, such as mesothelioma. Oftentimes, a person may not show symptoms that lead to these types of diagnoses until decades after the initial exposure. Recognizing the symptoms of possible diseases can lead to early treatment and can enable you to get the legal help you need to ensure that you are fully and fairly compensated for negligent toxic exposure.
As a South Carolina lung disease attorney and founder of the Knie & Shealy Law Offices, I have been helping injured victims and their family members pursue financial compensation for more than 35 years. I understand that there is no amount of compensation that can return you to good health. However, we can help hold negligent parties accountable for their actions and get you and your family the resources you need for now and into the future.Lung Disease Symptoms
Asbestos exposure and exposure to other toxic substances can result in mesothelioma and other serious diseases. If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, you should seek medical care as soon as possible:
- Constant shortness of breath
- Persistent cough or wheezing
- Coughing up of blood or other fluids
- Chest pain related to fluid buildup around the lungs
These symptoms may not be related to mesothelioma or other lung diseases. However, if you know or think you may have been exposed to asbestos in the past, it is important to speak with your doctor about ruling out mesothelioma and other diseases that are known to be related to asbestos exposure. If your doctor thinks that asbestos may have played a part in your lung cancer or other diagnosis, it is important to seek legal advice from an experienced attorney about possible legal steps that you may want to take moving forward.Contact a Spartanburg & Greenville Mesothelioma Attorney
