Asbestos Mesothelioma

Asbestos & Mesothelioma in Austin, TX

What is asbestos?

In chemical terms, asbestos is a group of naturally occurring silicate minerals. When compounded, asbestos can have several properties, including resistance to heat, electrical conductivity, and tensile strength. As a result, asbestos was considered to be an ideal material to use widely throughout the construction, automotive, and shipbuilding industries.

Link Established Between Asbestos & Mesothelioma

In recent years, health risks and illness have been linked to asbestos exposure. Now known and accepted as a carcinogen - a cancer-causing agent -many studies have been conducted that link asbestos exposure with mesothelioma, which is a cancerous attack on the lining of the lungs, stomach, and in some cases, even the heart. Because mesothelioma often takes decades to develop, it can be extremely difficult to prove when or if the asbestos exposure directly caused a specific person's disease.

Depending on where the cancer occurs or how severe the cancer is, there are common symptoms that may indicate asbestos-induced mesothelioma:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Painful coughing or breathing
  • Unusual lumps or protrusions under the skin on your chest
  • Unexplained swelling in chest, abdomen, or testicles
  • Unusual, unexplained, or sudden weight loss

  • What a great experience at Daspit Law Firm!

    “What a great experience at Daspit Law Firm! While on vacation a few months ago I had the misfortune of being hit from behind while driving back from Austin. I had several back and neck problems caused by the accident. After the insurance company of the driver did not cover my expenses only weeks after the accident I then called Daspit Law Firm. Best decision I ever made! They not only got all of my medical visits taken care of, but I also received extra for my time lost from my job! I will definitely recommend the team at the Daspit Law Firm.”
