Kansas Mesothelioma

A Brief Summary of the Following Page
  • How Asbestos Causes Mesothelioma: Asbestos fibers, when disturbed and inhaled, can travel to lung and other organ linings, causing irritation and DNA mutations that lead to mesothelioma, with a risk extended to household members.
  • At-Risk Groups: High-risk groups for asbestos exposure include electricians, plumbers, contractors, and those in similar occupations or living/working in old buildings, due to the material's use in construction and auto parts.
  • Diagnosis: Mesothelioma diagnosis involves a physical exam, imaging tests, fluid assessments, and a biopsy to confirm the presence and stage of cancer, emphasizing the importance of early medical consultation.
  • Legal Support: The trusted lawyers at Throneberry Law Group can help you recover damages associated with your mesothelioma by gathering evidence and building a strong claim to negotiate with insurance companies and litigate your case, if necessary.

Asbestos exposure has proven to be a serious problem for many in the United States because the carcinogenic material was once widely used as insulation in building materials, household products, and certain machinery. Unfortunately, asbestos exposure is the leading cause of a cancer called mesothelioma, which affects the lining of the lungs, heart, and other organs. Mesothelioma victims typically experience respiratory symptoms that can become severe. If you or a loved one have been diagnosed with mesothelioma in Kansas, you may be able to hold the at-fault party liable for causing your asbestos exposure. You deserve to be compensated for suffering from mesothelioma due to another party’s negligence, which our lawyers at Throneberry Law Group can help you achieve.

Throneberry Law Group has an expert team of nationwide mesothelioma lawyers eager to investigate your Kansas claim. A mesothelioma case can be complicated because many people are diagnosed decades after being exposed to asbestos. If you have received a mesothelioma diagnosis, you should reach out to our experienced legal team who will fight for you. With our unmatched comprehensive services, we conduct detailed investigations and litigate aggressively for just compensation.

How Does Asbestos Exposure Cause Mesothelioma?

Asbestos is made up of tiny fibers that you can breathe in if the material is disturbed, often during construction. When inhaled, these fibers can travel down into the lining of the lungs, called the pleura, and other organ linings. Asbestos fibers can irritate these areas, which may cause the DNA mutations that lead to mesothelioma.

Asbestos fibers can also be transported on clothing and other items, so those who live in the same household as someone who has been exposed may also be at risk for mesothelioma. However, the damage asbestos fibers can cause can take many years to develop into mesothelioma, making claims more complicated. Fortunately, our skilled lawyers can gather evidence and build a strong claim to prove another party’s negligence caused your asbestos exposure and mesothelioma.

Who May Be Most at Risk for Mesothelioma?

In addition to being used as a building material, asbestos was also used as a fireproofing material due to its heat resistance. Despite its dangers, the fiber is still used in construction materials, including roofing, corrugated sheeting, and imported cement pipe, and in auto parts, such as automatic clutches and brake pads. Therefore, those who may be most at risk for asbestos exposure and mesothelioma include the following:

  • Electricians
  • Plumbers
  • Contractors
  • Demolition workers
  • Mechanics
  • Shipyard workers
  • Insulators
  • Those who live or work in old buildings

If you work or have worked in a field with a high risk of asbestos exposure and experience symptoms of mesothelioma, like trouble breathing, difficulty swallowing, and chest pain, contact Throneberry Law Group to understand your rights and legal options to hold the liable party accountable.

How Is Mesothelioma Diagnosed and Treated?

Because mesothelioma symptoms are similar to those of other minor illnesses or something people often think will go away on their own, you may hesitate to seek medical attention immediately. However, it is crucial to see your doctor about these symptoms immediately, especially if you know you may have been exposed to asbestos. Diagnosing mesothelioma typically involves the following steps:

  • Exam: Your doctor will begin with a physical exam, checking for lumps and documenting your work history. Then, you will undergo a chest X-ray or CT scan to check for any fluid in the lungs or signs of asbestos exposure.
  • Pleural fluid assessment: Fluid in your pleura will be drained and assessed to eliminate causes for the buildup.
  • Biopsy: Mesothelioma is officially diagnosed after a biopsy, which takes a tissue sample from the affected area. Your doctor closely analyzes this sample to determine if you have mesothelioma and what stage it has progressed to.

Depending on the stage of your mesothelioma, you may have surgery to remove the cancer, chemotherapy to reduce and slow the cancer’s growth, or other treatments, such as targeted therapy or radiation. We understand you may worry about the cost of these treatments, but with our unwavering advocacy and negotiation skills, you have the best chance of receiving compensation for your losses.
