Asbestosis (as-bes-TOE-sis) is a chronic lung disease caused by inhaling asbestos fibers. Prolonged asbestos exposure can cause lung tissue scarring, cancer, and shortness of breath. Asbestosis symptoms can range from mild to severe and usually don’t appear until many years after continued asbestos exposure. Contact an Asbestos Lawyer for your case.

The average life expectancy for mesothelioma is 12-21 months. However, many people live longer than this, depending on their mesothelioma type, stage at diagnosis, and overall health.You Can Call Free To Asestosis lawyer.

Where asbestos may get found: Attic and wall insulation produced containing vermiculite. Vinyl floor tiles and the backing on vinyl sheet flooring and adhesives. Roofing and siding shingles.

Asbestosis is caused by breathing in asbestos fibers. People working in certain trades are more likely to have suffered from asbestos exposure. There’s no cure for asbestosis once it has developed, as it’s not possible to reverse the damage to the lungs. But some treatments can help, such as pulmonary rehabilitation – a program of exercises and education to help manage your asbestos symptoms.

Because asbestos’s longevity was one of its selling qualities, asbestos risks frequently necessitate hand removal. Asbestos was used in the construction of more than 30 million homes and buildings in the United States. Indeed, if you live or work in an older building, you may have been exposed to asbestos, the disease that causes mesothelioma. The only definite approach to eliminate the risk of asbestos exposure is to remove all asbestos-containing products. It is, however, not safe to handle any asbestos-containing items on your own. The safe handling and disposal of asbestos products is governed by federal, state, and municipal laws. Asbestos Lawyer can help you comprehend the rules in your state or city if you have any queries. Asbestos Lawyer can help you get maximum settlement.Contact Asbestos Lawyer.

The asbestos fibers irritate and scar lung tissue, causing the lungs to become stiff. This makes it difficult to breathe. As asbestosis progresses, more and more lung tissue becomes scarred. Eventually, your lung tissue becomes so stiff that it can’t contract and expand normally.

Signs of Asbestos Exposure Affecting the Lungs
  1. Shortness of breath.
  2. Dry cough or wheezing.
  3. Crackling sound when breathing.
  4. Chest pain or tightness.
  5. Respiratory complications.
  6. Pleural effusion (accumulation of fluid in the space surrounding a lung)
  7. Pleural plaques.
  8. Pleural thickening

Where asbestos may be found: Attic and wall insulation produced containing vermiculite. Vinyl floor tiles and the backing on vinyl sheet flooring and adhesives. Roofing and siding shingles.

Yes, you can live with asbestosis for years, but there is no cure for this progressive condition. Patients live an average of 10 years with asbestosis. Lung transplantation is the best long-term treatment for asbestosis, but few patients qualify for this serious procedure.
