Mesothelioma: Seeking justice when negligence is the cause

Many people in Minnesota and beyond have recently been informed by their doctors that they have an incurable illness. Mesothelioma is a type of lung cancer that often occurs in people who have been exposed to asbestos. Symptoms of this disease are not typically immediately apparent.

In fact, you might contract mesothelioma and not realize you are sick for years. People often feel led to seek medical diagnosis when they develop a nagging, lingering cough or experience chest pain or other physical discomforts. Once a diagnosis is made, the focus often shifts to figuring out how to help the patient maintain as high quality a life as possible in the time he or she has left.

If you were exposed to asbestos in the workplace, then later learn that you have a disease for which there is currently no cure, it is understandable that you might experience a wide range of emotions, including anger and frustration. Your employer is obligated to inform you of known dangers on the job. Regarding asbestos, there is no safe amount of exposure, so it is critical that you are fully informed of any and all risks believed to be present at your place of work.

In a Minnesota worker contracts mesothelioma or some other type of illness, he or she may be entitled to file a personal injury claim in a civil court. Siben Polk P.A., is committed to providing guidance and support in all aspects of asbestos litigation. Proving that an employer was negligent can be quite challenging, so it is always helpful to allow an experienced attorney to advocate on your behalf in court.
