People who develop chronic breathing problems have to live with these health issues forever
There is no cure for chronic breathing problems, which means that people who develop these health conditions have to struggle with them for the rest of their lives. However, there are effective ways to manage the symptoms, such as inhalers. Some of the most usual symptoms of chronic breathing issues are nasal congestion, itchy or watery eyes, chest congestion, a runny nose, coughing, difficulty breathing, shallow breathing, and wheezing. The purpose of treatment is to keep the symptoms under control and relieve them. Other chronic respiratory problems that fiberglass exposure, particularly if it was heavy, can trigger include the following:
- cystic fibrosis
- interstitial lung disease
If you developed one of the chronic diseases above and had not had any history of breathing problems before, we urge you to file a claim with the mattress manufacturer that is responsible for your fiberglass exposure, as their product has severely and permanently damaged your health. In addition to the physical and emotional struggle, you will also face overwhelming medical expenses and regular prescriptions that need to be filled so as to be able to function normally with your chronic respiratory disease. The compensation we can help you recover from the company will come in handy when it comes to all these financially-draining issues.
How inhaling fiberglass can lead to the development of chronic breathing problems
Upon being released in the air by a memory foam mattress, fiberglass will float in the atmosphere, inevitably leading to anyone who is in the room breathing it in. Because some shards of glass are large and have rough edges, they might become attached to the tissue of the airways and the lungs, from which the body cannot naturally get rid of. As a consequence, they may cause severe inflammation and irritation over the years, eventually resulting in a chronic respiratory problem.
If you experience new respiratory symptoms, such as a persistent cough, frequent sneezing, a runny nose, and shortness of breath, we strongly advise you to seek medical attention and to subsequently take action against the mattress company that exposed you to fiberglass. Not only will filing a toxic mattress claim provide you with additional money to afford the treatment you need, but you will hold the manufacturer liable for negligence and failure to warn, which will hopefully deter it from acting like this in the future.
