Mesothelioma & Asbestos Claims Veritas Law: Defending Truth, Upholding Justice

Grand Junction Mesothelioma & Asbestos Attorneys

A mesothelioma diagnosis can be a frightening time, but you don't have to face it alone. While focusing on your health is crucial, it's also important to understand your legal options. Filing a personal injury lawsuit can help you secure the resources you need to fight this battle.

As a mesothelioma patient, you have certain rights related to your diagnosis and the events leading to your exposure. These rights include the ability to pursue compensation from companies that knowingly exposed you to asbestos. 

At Veritas, we believe in our ability to help asbestos exposure victims because of our legal team's in-depth knowledge of personal injury law, asbestos exposure, mesothelioma lawsuits, and workers’ compensation law. As our case results prove, our personal injury lawyers have a long history of helping our clients secure favorable outcomes.

How Does Asbestos Exposure Cause Mesothelioma?

Asbestos exposure is the primary cause of mesothelioma, a cancer that develops in the thin lining surrounding your organs. Here's how it happens:

  • Inhalation or Ingestion: Asbestos fibers, which are microscopic and brittle, are inhaled or swallowed. This can occur in workplaces where asbestos is used, in buildings where asbestos products are disturbed, or near naturally occurring deposits of the mineral.
  • Trapped in the Mesothelium: These fibers become trapped in the mesothelium, the membrane lining your lungs, abdomen, and heart.
  • Inflammation and Scarring: The asbestos fibers irritate and inflame the mesothelial cells. Over time, this chronic irritation can lead to scarring.
  • DNA Damage: The persistent inflammation and the physical properties of the fibers themselves are thought to damage the DNA of mesothelial cells.
  • Mesothelioma Formation: Damaged DNA can cause uncontrolled cell growth, eventually leading to the formation of malignant mesothelioma tumors.

It's important to note that not everyone exposed to asbestos will develop mesothelioma. The risk factors include the amount and duration of exposure. If you are concerned about past asbestos exposure, it's wise to consult a doctor for monitoring and risk assessment.

What Are The Common Symptoms of Mesothelioma?

Many common symptoms of mesothelioma can be associated with other ailments, making the disease difficult to detect in its early stages. By the time the cancer is identified, it has often progressed to a more critical point. According to the American Lung Association, individuals afflicted with mesothelioma may experience a wide range of symptoms, including:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Chest pain
  • Lower back pain
  • Dry and persistent cough
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Abdominal swelling
  • Blockage in the small intestine

If you or a loved one experience any of these symptoms, especially when aware of past asbestos exposure, it is important to seek medical attention promptly for proper evaluation and diagnosis.

At that point, he switched to the other side. He opened our law firm and began helping clients fight back against large insurance companies. Now, we’re able to use all the tools and tactics that Attorney Doehling learned defending insurance companies to help our clients' cases.
