The Consequences of Asbestos Exposure And Asbestos Poisoning

While the dangers of some workplaces are obvious, other workplaces might contain hidden dangers, such as asbestos exposure.
Asbestos was a popular building material until the 1980s – but as growing numbers of people, mostly those who worked closely with the material, became diagnosed with a specific form of cancer, contracts stopped using the material. However, asbestos is still an ongoing problem, and in many cases workers do not know they were exposed to the dangerous fiber until they are diagnosed with a health problem.
The major health complication that appears with asbestos exposure is mesothelioma, an often-fatal cancer that affects the lungs, chest cavity, and abdomen. Specifically, mesothelioma is cancer of the mesothelium a special, protective membrane that lines body cavities. The vast majority of malignant mesothelioma cases involve occupational exposure to asbestos. More specifically, those who work in industries including steel, mining, plumbing, milling, insulation, and electric are at high risk for asbestos exposure, while many others who work in manufacturing are also at risk. Shockingly, asbestos easily clings to hair and fibers, making it all too easy for workers to unknowingly expose their families to asbestos. In more than one case, women have been diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma from washing their husband’s work clothes.
The symptoms of mesothelioma include chest pains, shortness of breath, cough, and weight loss.
If you or a loved one has suffered health problems because of asbestos exposure, it is important to speak to a Texas asbestos lawyer about your case today. We can investigate your case, determine what has caused your illness, and help you collect the damages you deserve.
