Brauer Employees Would Constantly Inhale Asbestos Fibers in the Workplace
Considering the manifold convenient properties of asbestos, it should not be surprising that shortly after the Industrial Revolution, it came to be known as “the miracle mineral”, becoming the go-to raw material for numerous industries. Although over 5,000 different consumer products in the U.S. would contain asbestos during the last century, insulation was by far the most popular. Specializing in the manufacturing of various types of insulation, a process which would release tremendous concentrations of asbestos fibers in the air, Brauer was one of the nearly 2,000 employers held liable in asbestos exposure lawsuits after the 1980s. If you had a job at this company during the heyday of asbestos use, you are likely to develop a serious disease in the future.
While not every former Brauer worker will be affected by occupational asbestos exposure, it is crucial to closely monitor your health, as the risk is unfortunately high. To make matters worse, people rarely experience symptoms when they suffer from asbestos-related diseases, which frequently leads to tardy diagnosis. Failing to detect rapidly progressing diseases such as lung cancer, pulmonary fibrosis, or mesothelioma in their incipient phases is bound to impact prognosis to a great extent, since the more time elapses from their onset, the more resistant to treatment they become. With over 25 years of professional experience, our specialists provide free screenings to Brauer workers who were exposed to asbestos on the job. All you have to do is send in the results of a recent chest X-ray and they will thoroughly assess the condition of your lungs.
