Personal Injury Attorneys with Asbestos Experience

Asbestos exposureAt one time, asbestos was a wonder product— a cost-effective heat insulator that got the job done. It was used as insulation in almost every kind of building possible, including schools, commercial buildings and residential facilities. It was also used in the manufacture of ships, locomotives and aircraft brakes.

Times change. Many people who worked with asbestos became very ill. This included almost anyone who touched the product directly, including brake manufacturers, aircraft manufacturers and those in the locomotive and ship manufacturing industry.

It is now widely known just how dangerous asbestos is, and one by one, the manufacturers and distributors who put asbestos into the stream of commerce are being held accountable. Our knowledgeable Sacramento asbestos attorneys have been, and continue to be, a part of that effort.

If you have been exposed to asbestos call (916) 525-7761 and take action against the people illegally utilizing this harmful substance.

Asbestos Exposure Effects

Asbestos exposure can have very serious consequences. It is linked to arrange a very serious and often deadly conditions including:

  • Lung cancer
  • Mesothelioma
  • Pleural plaque (fibrosis on the inner surface of the rib cage and diaphragm)
  • Asbestosis

Asbestosis

Asbestosis is a serious, chronic respiratory disease that begins with inhaled asbestos fibers. As these fibers become lodged in the lungs, they create scar tissue and diminish the lungs’ capacity. Symptoms of asbestosis include shortness of breath, chest pain and fatigue. The disease may eventually cause cardiac failure as it becomes more advanced. It is often seen in patients who already have cancer (mesothelioma) from their asbestos exposure.

Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer which invades the mesothelial cells. These are specialized cells in the membranes which line the chest and other areas of the body. Asbestos exposure is the main cause of mesothelioma. Asbestos fibers are very tiny and are inhaled if they become airborne. Once you inhale asbestos fibers, they can remain trapped in your lungs. They may also distribute to the pleura (the membrane lining the lungs.)

Pleural mesothelioma often takes decades to develop. Patients with this type of cancer may first experience difficulty breathing, as well as pain in the lower back or at the side of the chest. Other mesothelioma symptoms include difficulty swallowing, hoarse voice, sweating and fevers.

are Saying About Us.

  • He was patient, kind and extremely professional.

    “Mr. Miller represented me on a mold case against a former landlord, and management company. He was patient, kind and extremely professional. Although my case wasn't one of the biggie gold mine type cases that many attorneys are looking for, he treated me with respect, collegiality and was able to help me get a settlement through mediation that seemed to be the best option for the quagmire of my particular case. One should always hold negative reviews on here in perspective: often people think their cases are slam-dunks, but as we all know, the legal system is overly complex and not as straight-forward as we all would like it to be. Often cases don't turn out as we'd like them to, but I felt that Mr. Miller was above board regarding the overall merits of my case and he tried to be realistic as to the outcome. I would recommend him and/or avail of his services again.”

  • I feel so fortunate that John took my case. I will be forever grateful.

    “I feel so fortunate that John took my case. I will be forever grateful. I’m a single , working Mom with teenage boys which is stressful enough. We were living in horrible conditions in Redding Ca, landlord did nothing to remedy the issues, instead they retaliated. John was so professional , understanding and kind, We met at mediation about 6 weeks after he took me on as a client, he knew the bigger picture with me wasn’t about money, it was about people being treated Ike they are garbage and don’t deserve to live in a safe environment. John did get more money for us than original quote , but the best part he said he would send a letter to the other tenants and offer to help if they needed it. I can finally sleep at night. I feel like I made a great friend. Thank you so much.”
