Hawaii Mesothelioma Attorney

What is mesothelioma?

Several vital organs in the body, including the lungs, are covered with a protective membrane called the mesothelium. This coating is the site of a form of cancer known as "mesothelioma" which is most often the result of long-term exposure to asbestos. Symptoms of mesothelioma often do not appear for many years or even decades after the exposure and it can be difficult in some cases to determine the date and location of the exposure.

Who should be concerned about mesothelioma?

A large percentage of victims are construction workers who were forced to handle the material while installing insulation and were consequently made to breathe air that was thick with the micro-fibers that stick to the mesothelium. A Hawaii personal injury attorney can investigate your case to establish who was responsible for your asbestos exposure.

Mesothelioma Symptoms

Symptoms of mesothelioma include:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Wheezing coughs
  • Fatigue
  • Fluid surrounding the lungs.

If you contracted mesothelioma after handling asbestos, it is important to get started on your case as soon as possible. The medical bills for treatment can be costly and the impact of the disease on everyday living can be severe, from lost wages at work to physical disability and decreased enjoyment of life.
