Asbestos Asthma Claim Eligibility

How Does Asbestos Exposure Lead to Asthma?

As a very common lung condition, asthma is currently diagnosed in 25 million people in the United States. If you suffer from asthma, your airways narrow and swell and they may produce excess mucus. While numerous individuals are born with this respiratory condition, medical studies found that asbestos exposure may also play a role in the development of asthma. It is not yet certain whether asbestos exposure causes asthma or contributes to its development. Nevertheless, if you struggle with asthma and were exposed to asbestos, we encourage you to undergo a lung screening to find out if you have asbestos fibers in your lungs. If you do, you may be eligible for compensation.

Does My Asthma Diagnosis Make Me Eligible for Compensation?

If you have a history of asbestos exposure and developed asthma, we strongly encourage you to seek a second and even a third opinion from different medical specialists, as this is a common misdiagnosis among victims of asbestos exposure. You may be actually struggling with a more serious disease. To become eligible for filing a claim for asbestos exposure, you must have asbestos fibers in your lungs, which will become visible on a chest X-ray. The following are the rest of the eligibility requirements for seeking compensation for asbestos exposure:

  • you must have been exposed to asbestos on the job, in the military, or secondarily
  • you must file your claim within the statute of limitations

The team of professionals at Atraxia Law will help you determine whether you qualify for filing a claim for asbestos exposure if you initially received a diagnosis of asthma. We will carefully assess your situation by taking into account every aspect of your asbestos exposure and diagnosis and eventually let you know whether you can proceed with filing a claim. Nevertheless, you should keep in mind that a diagnosis of asthma does not make you entitled to financial compensation, which is why it is essential to be examined by multiple doctors before reaching out to our experts.
