NY Asbestos Exposure Attorney
Asbestos was used in the manufacturing of many products and buildings in the 1900's. Even today, many people who worked around asbestos-laden products or buildings are suffering due to exposure of the toxic chemical.
People who worked in factories, shipyards, plumbing, construction, building maintenance and similar fields are especially prone to asbestos exposure.
Exposure to asbestos can lead to:
- Asbestosis: Scarring of the lung tissue caused by inhaling asbestos particles. Asbestosis is irreversible, and can lead to COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), a disease that causes the airways to become obstructed, and make it difficult to breath.
- Mesothelioma: A form of cancer that affects the protective lining that covers the lungs or abdominal organs. It is caused by asbestos exposure and is typically fatal.
