Rescue Workers at Ground Zero

The United States was devastated by terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, and the effects of those attacks are still being felt. Unfortunately, some of these effects are more dangerous than we may think. In addition to the thousands of people who died that fateful day, thousands more may have been exposed to deadly asbestos fibers which were released from the North Tower when it was attacked.

Before the late 1970s, the use of asbestos in construction was not banned, and the North Tower still contained asbestos fibers when it fell. Unfortunately, the likelihood of rescue workers being exposed to dangerous asbestos fibers is extremely great.

If you or someone you know has been exposed to asbestos, it is incredibly important to seek medical and legal assistance immediately. Contact the experienced mesothelioma attorneys of Williams Hart today at 800-781-3955 to discuss your situation.

Signs of Asbestos Exposure

Because the signs of asbestos exposure often do not appear until decades after a person’s initial exposure, many people go years without realizing that they are suffering from a devastating asbestos-related condition. However, some of the following symptoms may be indicators that a person is suffering from asbestos exposure:

  • Persistent heavy cough
  • Coughing up blood
  • Wheezing / difficulty breathing
  • Other lung problems

Asbestos exposure affects the lungs, and is almost always life-threatening, so it is very important to seek medical treatment as soon as possible if you notice any of these symptoms.
