Types of Asbestos Related Conditions
Exposure to asbestos can cause a variety of conditions including mesothelioma, asbestos-related lung cancer, pleural thickening and asbestosis. Experts feel that even a small exposure to asbestos can cause mesothelioma.
The severity of symptoms will vary depending on the extent of the condition and the organs affected, although the most commonly suffered symptoms are breathlessness and chest pain. Initial symptoms may deteriorate and worsen over time.
It can take between 10 and in some cases over 60 years for symptoms of asbestos related conditions to develop following exposure to asbestos fibres.
The long delay between exposure and the onset of illness makes evidence more difficult to obtain as companies, witnesses, employers and/or their insurers become difficult to trace. It is therefore important to the success of your claim to contact a specialist asbestos lawyer who will have the expertise and knowledge to help.
