Mesothelioma Lawyers in San Antonio

Personal injury is a frightening condition. If you are injured and have no resources for medical treatment, living expenses, and cannot support your family, you understand how disturbing personal injury can be. It is possible, however, that the person or corporation that caused this personal injury may be obligated to pay for your expenses in the case of an injury. Determining responsibility for your loss can require the intervention and advice of a Personal Injury Attorney. Try consulting the law offices of Zinda Law Group PLLC, located in San Antonio, Texas.

Mesothelioma

One of the most devastating of personal injuries is one caused by exposure to asbestos. This exposure can cause mesothelioma, which is a cancer involving the protective lining of the abdomen, lungs, or the cavity around the heart. This protective lining is called the mesothelium.

Causes of Mesothelioma

Often people aren't aware that they were exposed to the effects of asbestos because its use has been so prevalent. Typically it was used as insulation, for roofing products, building materials, and in brakes and clutches for automobiles, as well as in a number of other industries. In most cases, side effects occurred after extensive daily exposure to asbestos for a period of time. Individual susceptibility varied, so actual exposure could be from six months to several years. Mesothelioma can take 15 – 20 years to develop, often long after you have forgotten your exposure to asbestos.

Symptoms of Mesothelioma

Shortness of breath and chest pain are symptoms of Mesothelioma, just as they are of a number of other conditions and diseases. Consulting with a doctor upon the advent of these symptoms will help diagnose the condition and help you determine the cause.

After the progression of the cancer, the following symptoms may occur:

  • Loss of appetite
  • Weight loss
  • Night sweats
  • Increasing shortness of breath
  • Voice changes

Some of the symptoms vary depending upon the location of the cancer, so be certain to consult with your doctor.

 

Treatment of Mesothelioma

As with any type of cancer, treatment is different depending upon the advice of your physician. The National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health says that at present there are three types of standard treatment for Mesothelioma:

  • Surgery
  • Radiation therapy
  • Chemotherapy

At present under investigation and clinical trials are biologic therapy and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy.

Costs of Mesothelioma

Costs vary from individual to individual, but certainly adequate cancer treatment is expensive. The costs of home health care, travel, medications, and living expenses can rapidly erode a life's savings.

That is when you should consult a San Antonio Personal Injury Attorney such as Zinda Law Group PLLC in San Antonio, Texas, for possible solutions to your dilemma. Managing both the legal system and the convoluted system of claims is difficult. They can negotiate settlements for you and even file suit if necessary. Arrangements for payment of their fees are available to help you.
