Did My Safety Mask Protect Me from Asbestos?

Asbestos is an incredibly dangerous mineral that, until the late 1970s, was widely used in a variety of construction and manufacturing industries. Often, asbestos exposure victims do not show signs of exposure until decades later when they are diagnosed with the deadly cancer mesothelioma and / or other asbestos-related conditions. Although many people who worked around asbestos may have worn protective masks while working, they could still have inhaled deadly asbestos fibers.

If you or someone you know has been affected, or suspect you might have been affected, by asbestos, it’s important to take immediate legal and medical action. Contact an experienced asbestos attorney of Williams Hart today by calling 800-781-3955 to discuss your unique situation.

How Asbestos Can Affect You

Even if you wore a protective mask for jobs involving construction, manufacturing, or demolition, you still might have inhaled asbestos fibers. Asbestos fibers, once broken, can enter through the mouth or nose and can cling to your lungs, sometimes causing:

  • Lung scarring
  • Lung cancer
  • Asbestosis
  • Mesothelioma

Protective masks sometimes only protect against larger particles, leaving workers susceptible to asbestos exposure despite this limited precaution. As a worker who came into contact with asbestos, it’s possible that your protective mask failed to prevent exposure to fibers.
