Asbestos and Toxic Tort Litigation | Romanucci & Blandin
If you or a loved one has had significant exposure to asbestos, you have a significantly increased chance of developing lung cancer, mesothelioma, asbestosis, and nonmalignant lung and pleural disorders. There are approximately 2,000-3,000 cases of mesothelioma that are diagnosed every year in the United States alone. Almost every case of mesothelioma is related to exposure to asbestos.
If you or a loved one has suffered an illness that is a result of asbestos exposure, RB Law’s asbestos and toxic tort litigators will help you with your claim. If a loved one was killed because of asbestos exposure, you may also be eligible for a wrongful death claim.
The signs and symptoms that are associated with an asbestos-related illness can occur anywhere from 10-40 years after exposure to asbestos. Common symptoms of asbestos-related illnesses, including asbestosis, pleural plaque, lung cancer and mesothelioma include:
- Coughing up blood
- Ongoing chest pain
- Pain on one side of your chest
- Shortness of breath with physical exertion
- Weight loss
- Worsening cough
The signs and symptoms of asbestos-related illnesses can vary greatly, depending on which disease or illness you have, and how significantly it damaged your lungs.
