Illinois Attorneys Representing Asbestos Injury Victims
Asbestos was once considered something of a godsend for its fire-retardant properties, but that was before people became aware of its significant health risks. Today the manufacture, maintenance and removal of asbestos are strictly regulated by the government because clinical evidence has determined that the material can lead to a host of health problems, up to and including death from lung cancer or mesothelioma. Asbestos exposure can be terribly dangerous to people of any age.
How Asbestos Exposure Works
The pathway through which asbestos impairs our health is simple: microscopic slivers of the material, often just microns long, become embedded in the lungs. Over time, scar tissue can develop, creating a major breathing difficulty called asbestosis. Still worse, many develop a condition more commonly associated with smoking: mesothelioma, a form of cancer. The prognosis is not good for either condition, and treatment can be intrusive, meaning you may be facing significant medical bills and lost wages in the years ahead.
