Effects of Mold and Asbestos
Mold spores are everywhere, but when colonies of mold spores form, they can cause many health problems for those who are exposed. Being in a workplace, home, hotel, or another location where there is a mold problem can cause the following and more:
- Shortness of breath
- Tightness of the chest
- Respiratory infections
- Lung disease
Mold can grow anywhere there is moisture, so it is often caused by neglect of a property or the failure to address leaks or water damage.
Asbestos refers to six types of natural fibrous materials, and the fibers can be used fireproof and strengthen different products, such as insulation. However, we have known for years that inhaling asbestos fibers can trap the fibers in the body and lungs permanently. This can lead to different serious illnesses and different types of cancer, including a unique form of terminal cancer called mesothelioma.
If you are diagnosed with respiratory conditions or cancer, and you were exposed to mold or asbestos, you might have the right to obtain compensation for all of your medical expenses, pain and suffering, and more. If you lost a loved one to mesothelioma or another fatal health condition from exposure, you might be able to recover by filing a wrongful death claim.
