Did Asbestos Exposure Lead To Esophageal Cancer?

Esophageal cancer can be aggressive, spreading to other parts of the body. If the cancer is not diagnosed early, the prognosis is generally less favorable.
Treatment for esophageal cancer may include removal of the esophagus and part of the stomach. This can cause serious problems with swallowing, nausea, vomiting and heartburn. In some cases, a subsequent surgery may be necessary to correct the issue.
Your medical bills for cancer treatment and post-surgery care will be considerable. You may not be able to return to work or participate in your usual activities, including caring for children. We can argue for compensation for your lost wages as well as monthly expenses.
If you lost a family member to asbestos-related esophageal cancer, we can file a wrongful death claim. Wrongful death damages can include medical bills, lost wages and compensation for funeral expenses and the personal loss of a loved one.
