New Booklets Provide Essential Answers to Mesothelioma Patients

June 2, 2011

In response to requests by clients and family members whose lives have been impacted by a diagnosis of mesothelioma, Clapper, Patti, Schweizer and Mason recently published two extremely helpful resources. Mesothelioma: What You Need to Know is an easy-to-read booklet filled with medical and treatment information regarding asbestos related cancers. Mesothelioma: Know Your Rights contains all the information anyone would need to know for filing a mesothelioma lawsuit or pursuing legal action regarding being exposed to asbestos.

Most often new clients call after hearing the devastating news that they or a family member has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, a rare and fatal cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. Because this type of cancer only affects 2500-3000 per year, many have never heard of it until a diagnosis has been given.

Researching mesothelioma on-line can be quite overwhelming. Clapper, Patti, Schweizer & Mason wanted to help by collecting all the most essential information in two booklets, one addressing medical needs and the other explaining the legal process - both areas which need immediate action for those newly diagnosed.

Mesothelioma- What You Need to Know describes the causes, symptoms and treatments for this type of asbestos cancer in simple, patient-friendly terms. It also lists the most likely places that one was originally exposed to asbestos, including a special section for veterans diagnosed with mesothelioma. Legal questions such as why file an asbestos lawsuit, how to choose the right asbestos attorney, and what are the first steps for pursuing legal action are included as well.

The second booklet, Mesothelioma - Know Your Rights goes into even greater detail, including whole sections devoted to providing medical information, such as how to get financial assistance, interpret a diagnosis, seek out the best mesothelioma treatments and doctors, and also includes a list of organizations that will help if travel for treatment is needed.

Being diagnosed with mesothelioma is devastating, for there is no cure and often survival times are quite short. To help clients newly diagnosed, in addition to the medical and legal information, both booklets include heart breaking yet inspirational stories from others who have walked that hard road.

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma or asbestosis and would like to receive a free copy of these new booklets, please contact our office at 1-800-440-4262 or email us at info@clapperlaw.com.
