Asbestos Injury Claims Lawyers in Austin
The injury firm of Zinda Law Group PLLC provides professional legal services to those affected by asbestos. Asbestos fibers upon inhalation attack the protective wall or the mesothelium that lines the abdomen, heart or lungs. These fibers have been known to cause several diseases including lung cancer, asbestosis, and mesothelioma. In the past asbestos was a popular product but upon recognition of it as the source of several diseases, the government imposed strict regulations regarding its usage and disposal. Victims affected by asbestos should contact a lawyer regarding possible legal recourse and available monetary compensation for injuries and suffering. Our firm serves the cities of Central Texas including the Austin area.
Symptoms from asbestos can take decades to surface, so those affected often do not receive the proper diagnosis until the cancer is far advanced. Those between the ages of 50 and 70 are most commonly diagnosed with mesothelioma. Some mesothelioma treatments do exist, but there is no cure for this type of cancer. These treatment options are more successful for an early mesothelioma diagnosis. Doctors often struggle to make the correct diagnosis, as the symptoms of mesothelioma are shared with a number of other illnesses. Patients who receive a mesothelioma diagnosis usually survive between one and five years. Common symptoms can include the following:
- Cough, chest pain, shortness of breath, difficulty swallowing
- Swelling of the neck, face or abdomen
- Weight loss, fever, anemia
Victims or surviving family members of a fatality due to asbestos poisoning may be eligible for compensation for loss of earnings, medical bills, pain and suffering, and loss of companionship. Although you can never completely compensate for the loss of health or life, we are determined fight for the rights to the compensation you deserve.
