Wisconsin Silicosis Attorneys
Silicosis is a lung disease caused by exposure to silica, a crystal that occurs naturally in rock beds. Because it is an element found in mines and sand, individuals who breathe in dust from mines or sandblasting (such as on a construction site) are at risk of developing silicosis due to their inhalation of silica dust. Silicosis may develop over time, causing a chronic condition, or it can develop suddenly after an inhalation of a large amount of silica.
If you or someone you love was exposed to silica from a construction site, the Wisconsin silicosis attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. are prepared to help you seek financial compensation for your pain, suffering, and medical expenses.
