When you or someone you love has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, it can feel as if nothing will ever be the same. While no legal action can bring back good health, it can help you take action that can give you the resources to care for yourself and your family.
As a South Carolina mesothelioma attorney and founder of the Knie & Shealy Law Offices, I represent the victims of lung disease and their families. I know the heartache that this type of diagnosis can bring, so I advocate forcefully to make sure that your rights are fully protected in court.What Is Mesothelioma?
Mesothelioma is a disease in which malignant cells are found in the area lining the chest, heart and lungs. It is considered to be a rare form of lung disease, but the people who experience it often have one thing in common: They have experienced asbestos exposure in the past, which can be directly linked to their illness now.
People may have been exposed to asbestos and other toxins in a number of different ways, including:
- Working in jobs that exposed them to asbestos — trades like insulators, plumbers, electricians and manufacturers
- Being in households or schools where asbestos was present
If you are dealing with this serious condition, you may wish to seek the services of a medical specialist who has special knowledge related to asbestos lung cancer. If you are out of work, or if you are not collecting a paycheck, you may be worried about the costs of medical specialists.
I can help by contacting your creditors or medical providers and telling them why you are behind in payments. I can let them know that you are working with a lawyer to help you get the financial compensation you need.Contact a Spartanburg & Greenville Asbestos Cancer Attorney
