 Do I Have to Sue To Be Compensated for Asbestos Exposure?

If you find yourself among the numerous individuals who have suffered from diseases linked to asbestos exposure, you could potentially be entitled to compensation. There are asbestos trust funds, amounting to a collective sum exceeding 30 billion dollars, which have been set aside to provide recompense to individuals facing circumstances similar to yours, all without requiring you to engage in legal proceedings or make appearances in court.


The legal experts at Sammons & Berry, P.C. specialize in aiding victims by facilitating their applications for asbestos trust funds, taking into account their unique medical and professional backgrounds. Importantly, it’s worth highlighting that qualifying for compensation doesn’t necessarily hinge on receiving a diagnosis of lung cancer or mesothelioma. Some of the illnesses that might render you eligible for compensation include:


Asbestosis and Asbestos-Related Pleural Disease


Pleural Plaque/Thickening: This condition involves scarring of the lung lining, indicating a risk of more severe complications. While not cancerous, plaque or thickening impairs lung function and breathing. Asbestos markers in the lungs suggest increased risks of lung cancer or Mesothelioma.


Asbestosis: A chronic non-malignant scarring and fibrous hardening of the lungs caused by prolonged asbestos exposure. More inhaled asbestos leads to worse scarring or fibrosis. Asbestosis symptoms include breathlessness, coughing, and dry crackling inhalation sounds. In advanced stages, it may result in cardiac failure. It has a latency period of 15 to 30 years, and asbestos fibers lead to scarring due to immune responses.


Lung Cancer: Prolonged asbestos exposure increases the likelihood of lung cancer, which invades and obstructs air passages. Smoking and asbestos exposure together drastically increase lung cancer risk. Developing lung cancer after asbestos exposure takes years due to trapped asbestos in the lungs.


Mesothelioma: A rare cancer of thin membranes in the thoracic and abdominal cavities caused by asbestos exposure. Symptoms include breathlessness, chest pain, coughing, and weight loss. Even short-term asbestos exposure can lead to Mesothelioma, affecting both exposed individuals and those near contaminated clothing. Unlike some other diseases, it isn’t linked to smoking.

It’s crucial to understand the worrisome link between asbestos exposure and the development of serious health problems. These include conditions like throat cancer, esophageal cancer, stomach cancer, and colon cancer. What’s important to stress is that it might take many decades for these illnesses to appear after being exposed to asbestos. This long time frame highlights how these health risks can stay hidden for years, even though the damage is silently building up. This is why it’s essential to be alert and informed about the potential health effects of asbestos. Even if you don’t experience symptoms right away, staying cautious and informed about possible asbestos-related health concerns is incredibly important.
