NC Asbestosis Deaths From Around the State
North Carolina asbestos attorney Tom Lamb provides these case reports about deaths from around the state caused by asbestosis in order to inform NC workers and their families who may have had a similar work history with asbestos exposure and are now confronted with asbestosis years later.
A very important characteristic of asbestosis is the unexpectedly long latency period (or delay / lag time) between one’s exposure to asbestos dust and the diagnosis of asbestosis. It will take at least 15 years, and usually longer, from the first asbestos exposure before asbestosis is diagnosed by a doctor.
Workers and their families may be entitled to legal compensation from an asbestos lawsuit or a North Carolina workers comp claim filed by an NC lawyer because asbestos exposure causes asbestosis and other non-malignant asbestos-related conditions such as pleural disease, pleural plaques, and pleural thickening.
