Asbestos Poisoning Symptoms

During the mid- to late- 20th century, American home builders and general contractors frequently used asbestos when erecting a new building, especially in insulation and drywall. Since then, a multitude of Americans have died from diseases associated with asbestos exposure, including mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis. Fortunately, in the 21st century, building owners and contractors are finally beginning to take asbestos exposure seriously.

If you or someone you care about has become sick because of asbestos exposure, you may be able to get financial compensation from the person at fault in order to help with medical bills and other related expenses. To learn more about this possibility, contact the mesothelioma lawyers of Williams Hart today by calling 800-781-3955.

Common Symptoms of Asbestos Poisoning

There are many different symptoms and warning signs of asbestos poisoning. Some of the most common symptoms of asbestos exposure and poisoning include:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Wheezing and hoarseness
  • Atypical and persistent cough that progresses over time
  • Coughing up blood
  • Chest pain and tightness
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Swelling of face and/or neck
  • Appetite loss
  • Unusual or mysterious weight loss
  • Fatigue
  • Anemia

Unfortunately, by the time many of these symptoms are recognizable, asbestos-related diseases may have already progressed to a dangerous point. For this reason, it is imperative that you seek the help of a medical professional immediately if you have reason to believe that you have been exposed to asbestos.
