High Risk of Lung Disease for Bell Asbestos Mines Workers
Located in Quebec, Canada, Bell Asbestos Mines had been in use for over a century until 2008, when it finally shut down. Between 1932 and 1970, it supplied raw chrysotile asbestos to hundreds of U.S. companies, which would subsequently employ it for the manufacturing of various products. Considering the tremendous carcinogenicity of asbestos, it is probably not surprising that numerous people who worked at Bell Asbestos Mines have lately developed serious types of pulmonary disease such as lung cancer, COPD, asbestosis, and mesothelioma.
However, lung disease which occurs as a consequence of workplace asbestos exposure is very challenging to diagnose, as people who come to suffer from it rarely experience clear, specific symptoms. Accordingly, the vast majority of miners have their illnesses discovered only when they become untreatable, which shortens their lives dramatically. To promote early detection and correct diagnosis, the medical experts at Environmental Litigation Group, P.C. provide free screenings to former Bell Asbestos Mines workers. In the unfortunate event it turns out your lungs have been affected by occupational asbestos exposure, our attorneys – who specialize in such cases – will help you recover fair compensation for your injury.
