Respiratory and Asbestos-Related Illness

The emergence of respiratory illnesses has become prevalent in recent years, particularly for those that worked with asbestos-based products in the 1970s. As the effects of asbestosis do not manifest for many years, often over 20 years later; sufferers are only now being diagnosed with the illness.

Respiratory diseases can be the result of working in many different industries such as construction-based jobs or demolition work. Other medical conditions caused from these careers can include:

  • Asbestosis
  • Mesothelioma
  • Lung damage
  • Occupational asthma

Sufferers can experience terrible discomfort and their day-to-day activity can be severely affected.

The failure of employers to discover the health implications of working in these environments through company risk assessments, has led to many cases being brought in front of the courts.
