Clapper Patti Schweizer & Mason (CPSM) are leading mesothelioma lawyers who fight for just compensation for their clients who have been injured by asbestos exposure and are diagnosed with mesothelioma. CPSM attorneys are dedicated to providing the most up-to-date resources to clients and their family members and have just added a new page detailing an essential component to any mesothelioma treatment: Palliative Care.
Barry Matson, one of the asbestos attorneys at CPSM who does the majority of research and investigation for cases, sustains ongoing contact with our clients long after their mesothelioma lawsuits and bankruptcy claims have successfully been settled. He says, “One of the most consistent comments I get from loved ones of clients is how much palliative care helped. They say it not only helped by lessening the symptoms of mesothelioma and treatments like shortness of breath, nausea, pain and fatigue but also gave them much needed extra support during such a challenging time.”
Palliative care often also includes some element of support around the issues of grief and bereavement as well as decreasing discomfort with pain and symptoms. Palliative care allows for the most possible comfort in all types of settings, from hospitals to outpatient clinics to individual’s homes. Many organizations that offer palliative care, also often referred to as end-of-life care, for patients who are at the end stage of mesothelioma will provide their services in the home, a preference for many.
According to the American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine, only some insurance plans will cover the cost of palliative care. Part of the legal representation services provided by Clapper Patti Schweizer & Mason helps families coping with mesothelioma to explore all their financial options as well as to recover significant settlements to cover the cost of both traditional and supplemental treatments.
