Asbestos Injury Information

           Asbestos has been used for many years because of its resistance to heat and most chemicals.  Because of these properties, asbestos fibers have been used in the manufacture of a wide range of goods such as: roofing shingles, paper products, cement products, ceiling tiles, floor tiles, textiles, coatings, automobile brakes, clutches and transmissions.

                Continued exposure to asbestos can increase the amount of fibers that remain in the lungs.  This could cause potentially fatal diseases. 

                Asbestosis is a serious, long-term disease.  The inhalation of asbestos fibers irritate the tissues in the lung and cause scarring.  The scarring makes it difficult for oxygen to get into the blood.  Symptoms include: shortness of breath, persistent chest pains, anemia and hoarseness.
