Receiving a diagnosis of mesothelioma can be compared to being plunged into your worst nightmare. It is the past come back to haunt you decades later, and through no fault of your own. Mesothelioma is both fatal and extremely painful, and it is entirely preventable, but those who profit from asbestos use have chosen not to prevent it. If you have mesothelioma or have lost a loved one to this horrible form of cancer, you may be entitled to compensation. Our South Dakota mesothelioma attorneys can help.
Mesothelioma is unnecessary. It is a prime example of companies putting profit over people. The health consequences of asbestos exposure have been known since the late 1800’s, but it is still in use today, often without the knowledge of those who are exposed. Just compensation for your injuries can include:
Mesothelioma is just one of the illnesses which can be caused by asbestos exposure. Asbestos causes other types of cancer and non-cancerous respiratory illnesses such as asbestosis. All of these asbestos-related diseases can cause pain, disability, and death.
The symptoms of mesothelioma and other illnesses caused by asbestos exposure may not show symptoms for 20 years or more after exposure. When the symptoms surface they are often misdiagnosed, leading to even further delayed treatment.
