If you have been exposed to asbestos, you may be concerned about the long-term health effects.  Asbestosis is a natural mineral product that was previously used in products such as insulation, cement, vinyl flooring and fire-resistant materials.  It was popular in the past due to its resistance to heat and corrosion.

The problem with long-term asbestos exposure is that it can take anywhere from 20 to 30 years to realize the effects.  One of the serious disorders associated with asbestos exposure is known as asbestosis.  It is a breathing disorder resulting from inhaling asbestos fibers.  Scarring of lung tissue and shortness of breath can occur as the fibers accumulate in the lungs.

Symptoms of asbestosis don’t usually develop until there is damage and scarring of the lungs.  Asbestosis symptoms typically include shortness of breath, decreased ability to perform physical activities, coughing, chest pain and finger deformity, known as clubbing.

You should seek medical attention if you have been exposed to asbestos for a long period of time, especially if you are experiencing any of the signs of asbestosis.   If your condition was caused by someone else’s negligence, such as in the case of a negligent vessel owner, you may be able to hold that person liable for you illness.  Contact Attorney Steve Lee for legal advice at 713-921-4171 or 800-232-3711 today.

You should always bear in mind that the cheapest insurance is not always the best insurance.

Those companies that offer such cheap rates are often able to do so because of the way that they treat their policyholders when they file a claim.

A company called AM Best bases ranks insurance companies, but does not base the rankings on their profitability, or the amount of money that they spend on advertising. Rather, AM Best ranks insurance companies based on their willingness and ability to pay out claims.

This is the best way for you to figure out which insurance policy is the best for you. Go to their site and see where you insurance company is on their lists.

As always, if you have been injured in a Houston car accident, contact Attorney Steve Lee for a free legal consultation today.

According to an article at Insurance.com, insurance rates have risen 1.05% this quarter, and will probably be rising even more for the rest of the year. Since we're all paying more at the pump, higher insurance rates are the last thing any of us need.

If you follow the link, you will find a USA Today article that gives you six different ways to save money on your car insurance.

Just bear in mind that skimping on your car insurance costs can come back and haunt you if you have to file a claim. And as always, if you find yourself injured in an accident and the insurance company is denying your claim unneccesarily, contact our offices for a free legal consultation today.

The article linked above is from the Wall Street Journal, and it is describing how doctors can't wait to come down here to practice medicine. The reason? Tort reform.

In case you weren't aware of it, the State Legislature in Austin placed caps on non-economic damages to $250,000. So no matter how egregiously a doctor screws up and no matter how much of a loss that costs your family, the highest amount that you can get is $250,000.

Dead child? $250,000.

Husband ends up in a wheelchair? $250,000.

It's also interesting to notice that now the doctors are complaining about the medical board that has increased scrutiny of medical practicioners as a compromise for enacting caps. Which begs the question: Are the doctors that are in such a hurry to get down here coming because they want to, or because they know that they will get sued for less?

There is another side to these caps, as well.

An attorney from Dallas named Bob Kraft gives a perfect example of how the rights of victims have been completely trampled upon thanks to the new rules. Follow the link to the article below.

A great article in The New York Times outlines one of the major obstacles to quality healthcare in America.

It isn't the lawyers, or the doctors that people have to worry about. It's the insurance companies micromanaging and denying perfectly reasonable prescriptions, tests and procedures in order to save a buck.
