Your Rights to Social Security Disability and Mesothelioma
Americans who work in mines, factories, insulation manufacturing, construction workers, chemical plant workers and ship builders may have been exposed to asbestos fibers which has led to the development mesothelioma.
Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that affects the layers of cells called mesothelium, which cover most internal organs.
Unfortunately, the common disease is plural mesothelioma, which affects the lining surrounding the lungs. The symptoms of plural mesothiolmia are shortness of breath, painful breathing, coughing, chest pain, lumps under the skin on the chest, unexplained weight loss and even a dry cough.
Exposure to asbestos is the major cause of mesothelioma in the United States and workers who have contracted the disease are eligible for Social Security Disability benefits.
If you or a family member has been exposed to asbestos fibers and has difficulty breathing, contact the Law Offices of Nancy L. Cavey for more information regarding possible Social Security Disability benefits as a result of an asbestos exposure or diagnosis of mesothelioma.
