St. Louis Asbestos Exposure Attorneys Serving Clients Nationwide
If you have been exposed to asbestos on the job and you are experiencing any symptoms of mesothelioma, it is important to visit your physician as soon as possible. The first step in a diagnosis of mesothelioma is to provide a full and accurate medical history to your doctor, including the types of symptoms you are currently experiencing. You should also mention your exposure to asbestos.
Mesothelioma patients usually are diagnosed within three to six months of their first doctor visit. Patients will undergo a physical examination where a doctor will test for the causes of the symptoms being displayed. Further testing is often necessary. At Brown & Crouppen, we can help you understand your rights and options if you are concerned about asbestos exposure and potential mesothelioma or related conditions.
Did you know? Companies knew as far back as the 1920s that asbestos exposure could result in lung cancer and mesothelioma. Yet, these companies chose profits over safety, and workers paid the price. It is important to hold them accountable.

- MRI scans
- Biopsy tests
