Support is available for those suffering asbestos exposure injury

The dangers associated with naturally occurring fibrous materials known as asbestos were not always so widely known. In fact, many industries regularly used asbestos in construction and to manufacture various products. Asbestos has flame retardant properties that made it a desirable component in the manufacture of insulation and other types of materials, sometimes even including clothing. Asbestos exposure continues to pose great risks to workers and residents in South Carolina and beyond.  

The use of asbestos is greatly restricted nowadays; however, many older homes and buildings or products still contain the microscopic particles that can get lodged in a person's lungs, causing irreparable damage that often leads to fatal illness. People suffering from such illnesses often remain unaware of their diseases until long after their initial asbestos exposures took place. Those who worked in shipyards, refineries or textile factories are at high risk for such illnesses.  

Thankfully, medical science now provides the tools necessary to help diagnose asbestos-related illnesses. The first signs of illness often include chronic chest discomfort, unexplained coughing or severe fatigue. Once a formal diagnosis is made, palliative treatment can be provided to help a patient find relief for his or her symptoms.  

Many asbestos exposure incidents lead to litigation. Such incidents are often preventable and determined to have been caused by one or more parties' negligence. Richardson, Patrick, Westbrook & Brickman, LLC, has successfully guided many South Carolina asbestos injury victims through the process of seeking legal accountability against those deemed responsible for their suffering.
