Claim Application

Most people exposed to fiberglass develop respiratory problems, but others experience gastrointestinal issues

Once you remove the cover of a Nectar or Ashley Furniture memory foam mattress, which is a defective product due to the presence of the zipper, the inner layer of fiberglass will be exposed. The slightest disturbance can make fiberglass airborne, and people who spend time in the contaminated room usually have no idea there is fiberglass in the air. Consequently, they inhale a significant amount of tiny shards of glass and also ingest fiberglass. Even though gastrointestinal symptoms associated with fiberglass exposure are less common, they can still occur and include:

  • stomach irritation
  • bloating
  • small intestine irritation
  • gastroesophageal reflux disease

When you swallow fiberglass, some of the sharp particles will become attached to the lining of your stomach and the small intestine, which might cause severe irritation. Even though this health issue might solve itself within several weeks, you should document it by visiting a medical specialist and requesting copies of your medical records if you want to file a claim against Nectar or Ashley Furniture, which we strongly encourage you to do as soon as you are healthy again.

How exposure to fiberglass from a memory foam mattress can cause gastrointestinal problems

When you spend time in a room that has fiberglass floating in the air, you will unavoidably swallow some particles when you breathe or talk, which can become embedded in the lining of your esophagus, stomach, or small intestine. Once attached to internal tissue, fiberglass will cause inflammation and irritation, as it is a foreign object that your body will strive to reject. In turn, this may lead to gastrointestinal problems.

If you have minor symptoms, you should also go to the doctor, as you cannot know the extent of the damage the fiberglass has done to your gastrointestinal tract otherwise. This will also help you gather the evidence you need to document your injury if you wish to file a toxic mattress claim with the liable manufacturer. Lastly, you will also receive the treatment you need if your gastrointestinal problems are more severe than you have initially thought.
