Houston, TX (PRWEB) March 13, 2014
A rare form of cancer, mesothelioma is commonly caused by exposure to asbestos. This has resulted in countries like the United States coming up with legislation to regulate or ban the use of the material. And Shrader Law & Associates L.L.P. have joined the fight for workers suffering from the result of such exposure by providing mesothelioma compensation services.
Popular in the building and manufacturing industry for certain qualities or advantages—such as sound absorption, resistance to fire or heat, and level of affordability—asbestos became a popular application during the 19th and 20th centuries. It was widely used in houses, buildings, automobiles, pipes, naval ships, and submarines, among other applications. However, it was eventually discovered that asbestos is very dangerous, and workers in the aforementioned industries were more likely than others to suffer from the effects of inhalation or ingestion of the material. One of the most common diseases associated with such exposure is mesothelioma, which is so named because it affects the mesothelium, the protective lining that covers several internal organs, which include the lungs and heart.
It takes a long time for the signs of mesothelioma to show up after exposure to asbestos; it can take about 20 to 50 years before the first symptoms to present themselves. The symptoms include shortness of breath, chest pain, and coughing: all evidence of excess fluid accumulating in the space that surrounds the lungs (called the pleural cavity). Life expectancy with mesothelioma is severely limited, and the condition is often fatal.
At Shrader & Associates, L.L.P., an attorney will consult with the person suffering from mesothelioma.

The lawyer will also advise the clients of their rights to compensation and filing of a claim in the court of law. Ultimately, clients will be able to determine whether they want to go ahead with a legal case.
