    Asbestos Exposure

    Inhalation or ingestion of asbestos fibers can cause an individual to develop various health concerns, some of which may be fatal. If you or a loved one suffers from asbestosis or any other asbestos-related disease, legal action may be available to help you seek financial compensation that may be used to address the costs of care and other concerns. To learn more, contact an experienced New York defective drug and product attorney of Hach & Rose, LLP by calling (212) 779-0057 today.

    Non-cancerous asbestos-related diseases include asbestosis, pleural plaque, and pleural thickening. If you have been exposed to asbestos at some point in your career, it does not mean that you have an asbestos-related disease; however, it does mean that you should be aware of your likelihood of contracting an asbestos-related disease and take appropriate steps.

    Identifying Asbestosis

    Asbestosis is a non-cancerous, serious lung disease caused by inhaling asbestos fibers. The disease may cause the inhaled asbestos fibers to collect in and on lung tissues, which causes them to scar. Those suffering from asbestosis may experience, among other symptoms, shortness of breath and fatigue. When the disease has advanced, it has been known to cause cardiac failure, serious disability, and/or death.

    Workers who believe or know they have been exposed to asbestos in any capacity should inform their physician immediately of such exposure. It is important that your doctor be informed of any symptoms that might result from your asbestos exposure. Some symptoms of asbestos-related disease are shortness of breath, coughing, bloody mucus, chest pain, abdominal pain, significant weight loss, or difficulty swallowing. If you experience these symptoms, you should contact your doctor immediately.

    You should receive regular medical care and exams. Ask your doctor about receiving a complete physical examination, including chest X-rays and pulmonary function tests. Interpreting your chest X-ray may require the help of a specialist who is experienced in reading X-rays for asbestos-related diseases.

    Taking Action

    Only your doctor can counsel you on the best medical course of action. It is important to remember that even if you receive a clean bill of health, you should visit your doctor regularly. Asbestos-related diseases are “latent” diseases that might not become symptomatic for 10 to 50 years. If you or a loved one suffers from asbestosis or any other asbestos-related disease, legal action may be available to help you seek financial compensation that may be used to address the costs of care and other concerns. To learn more, contact an experienced New York Asbestos exposure attorney of Hach & Rose, LLP, by calling (212) 779-0057 today.
