Many manufacturing businesses in Buffalo used the dangerous product asbestos. Asbestos was used in the construction of some older homes. Unfortunately, when minute particles of asbestos become airborne and are inhaled, exposure can lead to a variety of very serious and often fatal illnesses.
Among the most serious of these diseases is mesothelioma — an often fatal cancer afflicting the lining surrounding the lungs and other organs. Less serious, but still a very dangerous condition, is asbestosis, which is a hardening of the lungs. Inhalation of asbestos fibers is also linked to lung cancer.
Diseases related to asbestos inhalation are slow to develop and may not appear for years after exposure. As a result, asbestos cases often have unique issues.
