Since 1974, Kazan Law located out of Oakland California, has dedicated almost four decades to helping victims suffering from asbestos related illnesses. Asbestos exposure causes lung disease like asbestosis and mesothelioma. Asbestosis is disease where scar tissue develops in the lungs, which is a result of breathing is the asbestos fibers, and makes it very difficult to breathe. Mesothelioma is a form of cancer that usually involves the lining of the lungs, but can also affect the abdomen.
It is devastating when you or someone you love becomes ill from these diseases, and you will want to get both medical and legal help as soon as possible. In its early stages these diseases may go undetected or underdiagnosed. Some of the symptoms may include difficulty breathing, chest pains, hoarseness, trouble swallowing, and coughing up blood. Being able to recognize some of these symptoms may help move your diagnosis along quicker.
Asbestos is the only known cause of mesothelioma and the asbestos manufacturers knew about the hazards many years ago. It is unfortunate that those who work with the substance today are still at risk for developing these types of diseases.
At Kazan Law there are twenty lawyers who are some of the most experienced asbestos lawyers in California. Though located on the west coast, the attorneys work with people nationwide and have always been successful in obtaining compensation for their asbestos clients. They are committed to doing all that they can to help asbestos victims, including having the resources to help those clients who speak different languages.
Reaching out across the United States also means expanding the way in which communication takes place. With all the different cultures and languages spoken in the U.S., Kazan has now made it possible for potential clients who do not speak English to be able to come forward with their stories. There are several video messages in many different languages that are sure to be helpful for those who speak a foreign language.
When a new client comes to the office, information will be gathered from the individual. This intake process involves personal history about themselves, members of their family, the kind of work that they did, what was their exposure to asbestos, and any prior and current medical history. This all being said, it is very important that the information given is accurate and understood.
Having the ability to reach out to clients who speak a different language other than English, is just one of the many ways Kazan Law remains devoted to assisting the victims of asbestos exposure and/or disease.
