When Your Condition May be Serious
Asbestos is a strong and fire-resistant substance that was commonly used before the 1980s in construction materials. After decades of use, it was discovered that asbestos is unsafe to use because the inhalation of broken asbestos fibers can cause serious conditions like mesothelioma and lung scarring. Unfortunately, some employers failed to alert their employees of the risks of being exposed to asbestos, and now many workers are suffering the effects of asbestos exposure. The signs of asbestos exposure often don’t appear until decades after the initial exposure occurred, but any sign of asbestos exposure should be addressed immediately by a medical professional.
