Did Asbestos Exposure Lead To Esophageal Cancer?
If you or a family member has been diagnosed with esophageal cancer and was exposed to asbestos, you may be entitled to recover damages for medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering. Proving that your cancer was caused by asbestos is a complex process, however, and you will need an experienced attorney on your side.
At Kelley & Ferraro, LLP, we have represented thousands of families affected by asbestos-related cancers, including esophageal cancer. We understand the importance of proving the source of asbestos in each case.
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 And Medical Expenses
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, you can pursue a wrongful death claim. While no amount of money can bring back what you have lost, compensation can help you pay for medical bills, lost wages, funeral expenses and the personal loss of your loved one.
