Asbestos exposure is a very real, very DANGEROUS situation that can result in serious sickness like mesothelioma, or lung cancer.
Whether you came into contact with the asbestos 20 or 30 years ago, through your work, through the work of a family member, or because of your long-term proximity to an asbestos-producing factory or mine, early diagnosis and treatment is very important. Early detection and treatment can slow the progression of asbestos-related illnesses.
Aside from contacting a doctor for testing and treatment of mesothelioma, you should also contact a San Diego asbestos attorney. An attorney will be able to get you or a victimized family member compensation based on how that person came in contact with the asbestos. Who was responsible for the exposure? How bad are the asbestos’ effects on health?
