The Relationship Between Asbestos And Colon Cancer
Asbestos exposure has been associated with increased risk for developing gastrointestinal cancers, including colon cancer. Some studies suggest that ingesting asbestos fibers may be a factor in developing a gastrointestinal cancer. Workers who were exposed to asbestos and their families are typically at the greatest risk for certain types of cancer.
If you or a family member has been exposed to asbestos and diagnosed with colon cancer, you may be able to recover damages for medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and related expenses. Kelley & Ferraro, LLP, has provided representation to asbestos victims and their families for more than 18 years. You can rely on our experience with asbestos-related cancer claims.
What Is My Prognosis Once Diagnosed?
The prognosis for colon cancer patients depends on several factors, including the stage of the cancer at the time of diagnosis. When caught early enough, colon cancer is often treatable. However, your medical bills and other losses will likely be significant. Even with health insurance, your out-of-pocket costs can easily deplete your finances.
If you lost a family member to asbestos-related colon or gastrointestinal 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.
