Asbestos miners

Exposed to asbestos at their workplace

Miners and the communities based around asbestos, vermiculite and taconite mines are at the greatest risk of developing asbestos-related diseases. As a miner, you came in direct contact with large deposits of this carcinogenic mineral. When these deposits were mined, airborne concentrations increased greatly. Upon inhalation of the fibers, asbestos causes significant irritation to the lungs and bronchioles.

Claim Evaluation

There were elevated rates of asbestos-related diseases in the families of miners from the asbestos brought home on their clothing and working gear.

The time lag between exposure and asbestos-caused diseases for both the miners and the residents of the mining communities is of 10 to 40 years when it is already too late for any treatment option to work.
