Mesothelioma

Workers’ Compensation for Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is a particularly deadly form of cancer that has caused Ohio workers and their families tremendous loss over the years.  The cancer develops and spreads from the mesothelium, a thin tissue membrane that covers many of the bodies internal organs, including the lungs.  With more than 4 out of every 5 cases of mesothelioma caused by exposure to asbestos, occupational exposure is among the greatest risk factors for developing the disease.

If you or your loved one have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, the workers’ compensation lawyers of Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA are here to help.  Mesothelioma is an occupational disease for which workers’ compensation benefits may be available to assist you and your family.

Our attorneys can help you and your loved ones who were exposed to asbestos as the result of any employment, including exposure in high-risk environments like:

  • Metal Works
  • Power Plants
  • Shipyards and Railyards
  • Chemical Plants
  • Military Service

Warning Signs of Mesothelioma

Despite misconceptions, mesothelioma does not only affect the lungs.  For this reason, warning signs and symptoms are not limited to lung or chest problems.  Those exposed to asbestos should consult a doctor if they experience any symptoms associated with mesothelioma, including:

  • Chest Pain
  • Lung Fluid
  • Fatigue, Shortness of Breath, or Anemia
  • Abdominal Pain
  • Bowel Issues
  • Weight Loss
  • Cardiovascular Problems

These symptoms are not exhaustive. Workers exposed to asbestos on the job can suffer a multitude of health problems which may or may not indicate the presence of mesothelioma.

Clearly, the damage done by asbestos exposure is too severe to be taken lightly.

Our team has the resources and experience necessary to fight for the assistance you need.
