Sacramento Lawyers Represent Mesothelioma Victims
California attorneys fight to hold manufacturers and employers accountable
Decades after the devastating effects of asbestos were first identified, innocent people still suffer from mesothelioma due to the negligence of manufacturers and employers. This fatal type of cancer attacks the lungs and other internal organs, leading to debilitating pain and hardship. Mastagni Holstedt, APC is a California law firm that represents mesothelioma victims and families in litigation against the parties responsible for their condition.
Experienced firm provides comprehensive support to lung cancer victims
Mesothelioma is a much more serious medical condition than asbestosis, a nonfatal disease that causes scarring to the lungs. By contrast, mesothelioma is a cancer that occurs when asbestos fibers are embedded in the lining of a victim’s lungs. Our knowledgeable personal injury attorneys can deliver comprehensive counsel on each facet of mesothelioma claims, such as:
- Affected workers — Asbestos was used widely in building and repairs up through the early ‘80s, so people who worked in construction jobs before or during that time faced serious health risks. Mesothelioma also has afflicted workers in other industries such as shipbuilding, demolition and textiles. In addition, many military service members came into contact with asbestos. In a free consultation, we can gather information from which we will work to trace where the exposure might have occurred in your case.
- Symptoms — Individuals who have ingested asbestos often don’t see any sign of problems for decades. Coughing, breathing trouble and chest pain are early symptoms associated with mesothelioma and asbestosis. If you or a loved one is experiencing these symptoms and believe they might be related to asbestos, it’s important to obtain prompt medical attention to determine if either disease is present.
- Treatment — When mesothelioma is caught early, surgery might help lengthen the victim’s life and reduce some of the discomfort. Once the cancer has spread to other parts of the body, most treatments aren’t effective. Regardless of the specific medical care needed, our firm will seek full compensation through existing funds, personal injury litigation and wrongful death actions as necessary.
A mesothelioma diagnosis can be devastating for a victim and their family. Nothing can ease all the pain, but we are diligent advocates who will press for the maximum financial recovery available under the law.
