Attorneys Fighting for the Rights of Mesothelioma Victims

Mesothelioma is a form of cancer that originates from asbestos exposure. Since it takes a high degree of exposure to contract mesothelioma, it is usually only people who have worked in high-risk mesothelioma occupations who contract the illness.

If you have mesothelioma, think you might be at risk, or have lost someone you love in a wrongful death caused by mesothelioma, our Baton Rouge mesothelioma lawyers can help you. Murphy Law Firm, LLC is dedicated to providing aggressive litigation that is personally tailored to each client’s needs. We will help you decide whether you have a case, and we will help you get the compensation you need for medical bills, lost wages, mental anguish and pain and suffering that has resulted from the illness.

“Most mesothelioma cases are work-related, arising from breathing asbestos fumes in factory or other production jobs. It is not fair to work your whole life only to suffer a serious illness as a result. As a family man myself, I want to make sure you are fairly compensated for your illness, so you can continue to provide for your family. Call me.” ∙ Attorney Peyton Murphy ∙ Contact Murphy Law Firm, LLC.

Symptoms of Mesothelioma

Because decades can pass between the initial exposure to asbestos and detection and diagnosis of mesothelioma, it is essential to seek a medical evaluation and contact a lawyer if you have ever been exposed to asbestos or if you experience any of the following symptoms:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pains
  • Coughing and wheezing
  • Fluid buildup in chest
  • Bloated feet

Many of these symptoms are shared with other illnesses, so doctors often misdiagnose mesothelioma as something else. We can help you find a physician who understands mesothelioma and can check you specifically for asbestos-related illnesses.

Symptoms of Asbestosis

Asbestosis is a lung disease that can only be caused by a high level of exposure to asbestos. Most asbestos victims acquire it through prolonged exposure while working in high-risk occupations. Symptoms are similar to other lung disorders and include:

  • Breathlessness
  • Coughing
  • Chest pain
  • Clubbing of the fingers

Since it can take many years from the time of asbestos exposure until asbestosis is discovered, it is essential to seek appropriate medical attention as soon as possible. Our lawyers can help you find a physician in Louisiana. After receiving medical care, make sure to contact a team of experienced, aggressive attorneys who can help you understand your options and who will fight on your behalf.
