What to Do When Diagnosed with Mesothelioma?

Determine the cause and source of your asbestos exposure

Once you’ve been diagnosed with mesothelioma, it’s very important to determine when and where you may have been exposed to asbestos fibers. In some cases, a worker with asbestos particles on their clothing could accidently expose their loved ones. Our San Francisco Mesothelioma Attorneys can help put the pieces together and determine when exposure occurred by looking at your family’s employment history, hobbies, and activities you were engaged in years ago.  The Environmental Protection Agency has a created an asbestos page to help you better protect you and your family from accidental exposure.

Focus on medical treatment.

Mesothelioma is a serious and life-threatening lung cancer.  When you’re battling cancer, it’s important that you focus your energy and thoughts on your treatment.  Discuss your treatment options with your doctor.  The treatment options for mesothelioma will depend on the extent of the cancer and your health.

Focus your time on your loved ones 

Mesothelioma is a very aggressive form of cancer. No matter what your doctor forecasts in terms of the likely outcome of your treatment, you should spend quality time with loved ones.  Many people who are battling mesothelioma feel very ill and suffer tremendously. This can make it difficult to spend quality time with loved ones.

Determine a proper course of legal action.

$32 billion dollars has been set aside to compensate those who’ve been exposed to asbestos and have developed mesothelioma or other asbestos-related diseases. This money is held in a trust and is available to help pay for treatment costs and to compensate those suffering from mesothelioma. The first step in the process for obtaining compensation is getting a trusted Bay Area mesothelioma lawyer on your side to help determine your eligibility to receive a portion of the money held in the trust.

What to Do After You or a Loved One Has Been Diagnosed with Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is an extremely rare form of cancer that can develop after a person has inhaled or ingested microscopic particles containing asbestos.  Asbestos is a known carcinogen that’s been mitigated from buildings, ships and supplies many years ago. However, symptoms of asbestos-related diseases may not be apparent for years or even decades after you’ve come in contact with the dangerous fibers.

This often makes it difficult for those who’ve been diagnosed with mesothelioma and other diseases to determine when and where they were exposed to asbestos. At The Barnes Firm, our team of experienced Mesothelioma Attorney in San Francisco can help patients and their families put together the whole story, and get you compensation for the pain and suffering your loved ones have endured.
