Silicosis

Pennsylvania Workers' Compensation Attorneys For Silicosis Cases

Receiving a diagnosis of silicosis can be one of the most difficult events a person experiences. Finding the best available medical treatment should be your first priority, but taking legal action is also critical — especially if you suspect that the silicosis diagnosis is connected to your work experience.

Silicosis is a lung disease caused by inhaling particles of silica, quartz or slate, which cause inflammation and scarring on the upper lobes of the lungs. It most often affects workers who have been exposed to these particles over a long period of time. Workers affected by silicosis often experience shortness of breath, fever and skin that appears bluish in color from lack of oxygen.
