Where to seek support for mesothelioma issues in South Carolina
Many types of jobs place South Carolina residents at risk for personal injury. As much the same throughout the nation, some jobs are obviously more dangerous than others. In certain circumstances, a main issue is often asbestos exposure and the many health concerns associated with such materials, such as mesothelioma and other lung diseases.
Asbestos products are often found in old buildings, such as schools or apartment complexes. There are typically very strict regulations (that may vary by state) that govern the removal of items containing asbestos from any structure or premises. Property owners, employers and others may be held liable if they order removal of asbestos-laden items without adhering to existing restrictions.
Mesothelioma can be difficult to diagnose since its symptoms may not present for months or even years. By that time, those afflicted may be in the late stages of the disease. At this time, there is no known cure for mesothelioma, a cancer thought to be caused by repeated exposure to asbestos that can damage, lungs, hearts and other areas of the body.
If you live or work in South Carolina and believe you contracted mesothelioma after being exposed to asbestos, you may be wondering whether you have recourse under the law to seek recovery for your losses. A good place to start to determine whether you have grounds for filing a lawsuit is to request a consultation with an attorney experienced in this type of litigation. Richardson, Patrick, Westbrook & Brickman, LLC is fully equipped to address your needs regarding mesothelioma or other asbestos-related situations.
