Side Effects of Asbestos Exposure
Asbestos, masses of fibers which have a tendency to create a dusty environment in the air and stick to clothing, can cause cancerous and non-cancerous injuries which sometimes take 30-40 years to develop after the first exposure. Two of the most common diseases associated with asbestos exposure are mesothelioma and lung cancer.
Mesothelioma is a deadly cancer resulting from exposure to asbestos, which can be brought home on a worker’s clothing and inhaled by family members. There is no known cure." – National Cancer Institute
Mesothelioma is one of the most insidious environmental injuries to date. A person could breathe in asbestos fibers one day and not show symptoms of mesothelioma until 30 years later. There is no known cure for mesothelioma and the medical costs for treatment can be extensive.
Exposure to asbestos can also lead to asbestosis, a chronic and fibrotic condition affecting the lungs. Other lung problems such as pleural plaques, thickening of the membranes surrounding the lungs and an abnormal collection of fluid between the lungs and inside wall of the chest have been reported.
Medical conditions caused by asbestos exposure are a complicated issue that require experienced, knowledgeable Pennsylvania injury lawyers on your side to help you get the compensation you need.
