Asbestos is a naturally occurring element used extensively throughout the 1900’s all over the world. Exposure to asbestos dust can result in a condition called asbestosis.  Asbestosis is classified as a chronic inflammatory medical condition. It affects the parenchymal tissue of the lungs. Asbestosis occurs from extensive exposure to asbestos dust.  Unlike mesothelioma, which can be caused by relatively minor asbestos exposure, asbestosis typically is the result of exposure to asbestos dust over a long period of time or very intense exposure, such as exposure to high concentrations of asbestos fibers.

Asbestosis Diagnosis & Treatment

In most instances, in order to successfully diagnose asbestosis, a chest x-ray must be completed.  Some people who are affected with asbestosis develop plaques in the parietal pleura. The parietal pleura is the spacing in the body between the chest wall and the lungs.  Individuals who are diagnosed with asbestosis do exhibit symptoms similar to those of other lung diseases.  There is no specific curative treatment for an individual who has been diagnosed with asbestosis. Oxygen therapy is used to help with shortness of breath and breathing problems. Other respiratory treatments may be prescribed as well.

Asbestosis Lawsuits in New Jersey

In many cases, companies had knowledge about the dangers of asbestos yet did not take all necessary steps to protect their employees or their employees family members. If you or a family member worked for a company who did not protect its employees from asbestos exposure, and as a result that individual develops asbestosis, you may be entitled to compensation. Additionally, if you or a member of your family used asbestos containing products, many years ago, and those products did not contain adequate warnings, the manufacturer and/or distributor of that product may be held responsible for the asbestos injuries you or your family member suffered.

Because asbestosis is associated with high levels of asbestos exposure, sometimes, a family member’s previous asbestosis diagnosis can be used to establish that another individual in the household was also exposed to asbestos. Essentially, because the family member was diagnosed with asbestosis, he or she was likely exposed to high levels of asbestos fibers. Because the individual was exposed to high levels of asbestos fibers, it is likely that individual brought home the fibers on his clothing, exposing other individuals in the household.
