Looking for an injury lawyer in Inverkeithing
Inverkeithing is a town and a royal burgh in Fife, Scotland. We hope that none of the population worked in shipbuilding, construction or manufacturing in the second half of the last century. If they did, they could well have been exposed to asbestos, they may develop an asbestos related disease and will need to speak to an injury lawyer in Inverkeithing.
It is the dust that is dangerous and causes the need for an injury lawyer in Inverkeithing
Asbestos is made up of millions of fibres and it is when they escape into the air they become dangerous. That’s where the problem is; the dust gets everywhere, in the workman’s clothes, on their tools and in their lunches. It often went home with them and their families were exposed this way. Another example is ironing boards that were in most households. Because it was so heat resistant, it was used as the stand part where you put the iron while it was hot. It has not been unusual for a wife to use an injury lawyer because of exposure to asbestos from laundering her husbands work clothes.
Asbestos causes lung diseases
Asbestos settles in the lining of the lungs and can sit there for years before the damage becomes apparent. Its is said that anywhere between 20 and 40 years, after the exposure to asbestos, is the sort of time it takes for the disease to show itself. There are numerous asbestos related diseases, the most common ones are:
- Diffuse pleural thickening
- Benign asbestos pleural effusions
- Rounded atelectasis (Folded lung)
- Malignant mesothelioma
- Asbestos related lung cancer
If you have contracted any of these asbestos related diseases, you may be entitled to use an injury lawyer.
