San Diego, CA (PRWEB) July 30, 2014
The San Diego personal injury lawyers of The Law Office of Melinda J. Helbock A.P.C. are announcing that they are now offering free case reviews for individuals that have suffered from the negative effects of asbestos exposure.
“Symptoms of asbestos exposure can take years to develop, so individuals that were exposed to the toxin 30 plus years ago may just now be suffering from the ill effects,” said Melinda Helbock, Founder of The Law Office of Melinda J. Helbock A.P.C. “We want people to know that we are offering free case evaluations for individuals that are diagnosed with asbestos illnesses such as mesothelioma and their families.”
Exposure to asbestos, which was once widely used across many industries, can result in the development of serious illnesses such as lung cancer and mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer that affects the membranes surrounding the chest and abdomen. Asbestos exposure can also cause asbestosis, a lung condition that can cause coughing, shortness of breath and permanent damage to the lungs.*
Due to its resistance to heat, fire and chemicals, the naturally occurring mineral was once heavily used in many industries, including the shipbuilding, mining and milling, construction, drywall, insulation and automotive industries. Workers that were exposed to asbestos on a regular basis as well as veterans are at the highest risk for developing an asbestos disease such as mesothelioma, but it has also been proven that individuals with minimal exposure may also be at risk.
“We represent veterans and workers who were exposed to high levels of asbestos on a regular basis,” said Helbock. “We have experience in asbestos related claims and fight to help those affected recover the full amount of compensation they are owed.”
