Use of Asbestos and Silica
At one time the use of asbestos was common in America as an insulating material in many things, such as roofing, flooring, in ships and in other industrial applications. Silica was commonly used in sand-blasting. However, it was eventually determined that use of asbestos and silica in the workplace and elsewhere presented health hazards and could cause serious injury or even death.
Asbestos and Silica Exposure
Eventually the use of asbestos and silica or sand in those industrial and construction applications ceased, but unfortunately, many workers and other persons had already been exposed to enough asbestos or sand-blasting silica medium to cause diseases known commonly as “asbestosis” or “silicosis.” These diseases result in significant respiratory harm or even death and require expensive, ongoing medical treatment and monitoring. Asbestosis, silicosis and other “occupational diseases” can cause disability and impair your ability to function.
Get Testing and Treatment
If you are a former ship yard worker, factory worker or someone else who believes that he or she has been injured, resulting in an occupational disease like asbestosis, you should proceed with the necessary medical testing and treatment.
