Asbestos is known to be a harmful substance, and it can cause several very serious physical conditions that can affect the rest of a person’s life. Most of these conditions gradually worsen over time, but won’t show signs of their presence until years after a person was initially exposed. The development of an asbestos-related condition usually follows these steps: inhalation of broken asbestos fibers, attachment of the fibers to a person’s lungs, gradual irritation of lungs and development of scar tissue, deepening of scar tissue into cancerous tumors, and spread of cancer or other harmful conditions. Depending on the circumstances of exposure, a person suffering from an asbestos-related condition might be entitled to financial compensation to help cover the costs resulting from his or her condition.
