Although asbestosis (also known as diffuse pulmonary fibrosis) is not a cancer, it is an occupational or environmental lung disease that can lead to mesothelioma. But even if cancer never develops, individuals with asbestosis have long-term health issues. In spite of an asbestos ban in the 1970s, West Virginia workers and their families continue to suffer from asbestosis and related illnesses. The attorneys at Prim Law Firm, PLLC have extensive experience helping victims pursue the compensation they need and deserve.
Asbestosis develops over a long period—typically 10-20 years, and potentially even longer. Even workers no longer subject to asbestos exposure can develop symptoms because of the inability of the body to expel the inhaled fibers—and asbestos still exists in a wide variety of materials. West Virginia workers face exposure risks in many ways, including the following:
West Virginia ranks third in the nation for the number of asbestos-related deaths, making it vital to seek experienced medical support at the first signs of respiratory difficulties.
