The inhalation of fiberglass from Zinus mattresses can cause chronic breathing problems

Some of the fibers of glass released in the air by Zinus mattresses are large and have rough edges. Unfortunately, they can become embedded in the tissue of your lungs, which may lead to the development of chronic breathing problems such as asthma. If you struggle with any of these medical conditions, you may be eligible to file a Zinus claim.

By now, it is a known fact that it is a bad idea to remove the outer cover of a Zinus mattress, as the inner layer that will be exposed contains fiberglass, which can greatly contaminate your house. In addition, one of the health problems exposure to fiberglass can lead to is chronic breathing problems, as some of the fibers of glass released into the air by Zinus mattresses are larger than normal and have rough edges, which is why they may become embedded in the tissue of your lungs and subsequently cause severe inflammation.

In turn, severe inflammation can lead to tissue scarring and, eventually, to a chronic breathing problem such as:

  • allergies
  • chronic sinusitis
  • asthma
  • chronic bronchitis

Some of the most common symptoms of these chronic breathing problems are nasal congestion, a runny nose, itchy or watery eyes, chest congestion, coughing, difficulty breathing, wheezing and shallow breathing.

People who develop chronic breathing problems have to live with these health issues for the rest of their lives, as there is no cure, and the purpose of treatment is to keep the symptoms under control and alleviate them as much as possible.

For this reason, if you came to struggle with a chronic breathing problem after inhaling fiberglass from a Zinus mattress, we strongly encourage you to join the class-action lawsuit that is currently awaiting the approval of class certification against the company.

How can the inhalation of fiberglass cause chronic breathing problems?

When fiberglass is released in the air, it will float in the atmosphere, which will inevitably lead to you breathing it in. Because some glass fibers are larger and have rough edges, they will become embedded in the tissue of your airways and the lungs, from which your body cannot naturally eliminate them. As a result, they may cause severe inflammation and irritation over time, resulting in a chronic respiratory problem.

If you notice symptoms such as a persistent cough, frequent sneezing, a runny nose, and shortness of breath, we advise you to seek medical attention, as you may have developed a chronic breathing problem and, if you intend to join the class-action lawsuit against Zinus, you must provide our attorneys with evidence of your injury caused by the fiberglass in their mattresses.
