A South Carolina asbestos exposure attorney is an attorney who specializes in personal injury cases. A mesothelioma attorney knows that being exposed to asbestos can have a devastating impact on your health. Not only does asbestos affect your health, but it also affects your life and the lives of those who love you.
Obstacles Associated with Asbestos Exposure Cases
Mesothelioma and other cancers associated with asbestos exposure are not typically detected immediately after exposure. Symptoms associated with these types of cancers could take over twenty years to appear. This could mean that the companies that asbestos victims worked for may have gone out of business, started making different products, moved, or changed names in the time since the employee has worked there. It is often the case that the asbestos company has filed for bankruptcy, which can be a concern for those who are filing an asbestos claim.
This is where the asbestos attorney is most beneficial to your claim. The attorney will conduct extensive research in order to determine who was negligent by exposing you to asbestos. Often, the asbestos attorney will use lists of previous cases and reports that they have compiled in order to help determine who your case will be against.
Your South Carolina mesothelioma lawyer will also be responsible for getting a thorough evaluation of your medical records in order to substantiate your claim. Prior to representing you in your asbestos exposure case, the attorney will be sure that your claim is worth pursuing.
