Dealing with the ravaging effects of asbestosis

The dangers of asbestos have been known for a long time, which is why the federal Clean Air Act of 1970 was enacted. At that time, most sprayed-on forms of asbestos were banned in the United States. Sadly, many people in Minnesota and beyond were already exposed to asbestos years ago and are now experiencing adverse health conditions such as asbestosis as a result.  

Asbestosis is only one of many asbestos-related illnesses that can have serious, if not fatal impact on a person's life. This disease occurs through inhalation of microscopic asbestos fibers, which cause scar tissue buildup and other damage to the lungs. The lungs become like dried sponges, requiring much effort to breathe. Respiratory difficulty and chest pain are often the main symptoms but may not be noticeable until the disease is in its advanced stages. 

Another unfortunate factor related to asbestosis and other similar diseases is that many situations are later determined to have been preventable were it not for employer or manufacturer negligence. Many people are currently pursuing litigation to seek compensation for damages they suffered on the job, as consumers or in other asbestos-related circumstances. Asbestos litigation is complex, especially because of the amount of time that often has passed between an initial exposure and onset of illness symptoms.  

The good news is that you don't have to go it alone in court if you wish to pursue justice regarding asbestosis or some other asbestos-caused illness. Sieben Polk P.A., in Minnesota, is well-versed in this area of law and fully committed to helping you seek recovery for your losses.
