If you have worked on a job that caused you to have long periods of exposure to silica particles without adequate protection provided by your employer, you may become affected by the condition called silicosis.
Silicosis causes gradual and debilitating damage to the victim's lungs. It leads to a restriction in the ability to breathe and makes it hard to adequately supply oxygen throughout the body.
If you suspect or have been diagnosed with silicosis, you should call a Minneapolis personal injury attorney at Butwinick Injury Law, The Action Lawyers.
We are prepared to help you pursue a claim for the illness and damages caused by your condition if it can be shown to have resulted from your job or work environment. Because of the nature of the disease, it can take some time to properly diagnose and determine the extent of the damage.
Treatments are possible if the condition has not progressed too far. Victims of silicosis are much more susceptible to contracting tuberculosis, especially if it is not diagnosed prior to exposure. Once properly diagnosed, we can help you file a claim against your employer to seek financial compensation for your medical treatments and additional damages.
We understand the heartbreak after discovering that you or a loved one has fallen victim to silicosis. We are dedicated to helping victims and their families get the financial compensation they deserve to pay for all their medical bills, as well as the years of pain and suffering such a disease can cause.
You will need the commitment and legal expertise we can provide to pursue your claim against the large insurance companies that usually represent such businesses. We have successfully helped other clients get significant settlements and are prepared to help you pursue yours.
Contact a Minneapolis personal injury lawyer if you or a loved one suspect or have been diagnosed with silicosis. We can help you seek financial compensation for the damage and suffering you have experienced.
