Were you exposed to asbestos while at work? Our asbestos lawyers want to hear from you. We handle a wide range of asbestos claims including lung cancer and mesothelioma cases.
Did you know these two conditions are not the only illnesses that can lead to compensation for you and your family?
Our team also helps individuals who have developed other forms of cancer, such as esophageal, stomach, and colon cancer.
However, even without a cancer diagnosis, you STILL may be entitled to compensation for your time working in close proximity to asbestos. If you have difficulty breathing, a chronic cough, or internal scarring- these symptoms may be an indication of asbestosis.
Those living with asbestosis may be unaware that they have this condition before seeking a medical examination with an asbestos specialist.
What Is Asbestosis?
Asbestosis is a serious lung condition caused by long-term exposure to asbestos.
Asbestos is a fiber-like material that was heavily used in many professions, including the railroad industry. While asbestos can be dangerous, it’s not harmful if left alone. But if material containing asbestos is damaged or worn down, it can release dust that contains dangerous asbestos fibers.
When the dust is breathed in, the asbestos fibers enter the lungs and can gradually damage them over time. Typically, asbestosis is the result of long-term exposure to asbestos fibers.
Symptoms of Asbestosis
Inhaling or ingesting asbestos fibers over many years eventually leads to scarring of the lungs. Some of the main symptoms of this illness include:
- shortness of breath
- persistent cough
- extreme tiredness (fatigue)
- pain in your chest or shoulder
- in more advanced cases, clubbed (swollen) fingertips
It can take several decades before symptoms of this illness appear. If you worked closely with asbestos, it is important to stay proactive with routine health screenings to catch the earliest warning signs of a medical condition developing.
