Asbestosis is a chronic lung condition caused by prolonged exposure to asbestos and its resulting inflammation of the lung’s parenchymal tissues. Over time, the inhaled asbestos fibers scar these tissues, slowly choking off the ability to breathe normally. Asbestosis also greatly increases the sufferer’s chances of developing lung cancer at a later date. Adding insult to injury, asbestos companies and their insurers have also been working — trying to choke off plaintiffs’ rights to recover.

Attorneys at the law firm of Saville & Flint represent workers from a variety of industries who have developed asbestosis as a result of doing their jobs. Common asbestos-laden products that give rise to long-term exposure include:
- Pipe and ductwork insulation
- Home and building insulation
- Fire proofing materials
- Ceiling, wall and floor tiles
- Soundproofing materials
- Roofing materials
- Paints or textured paints
- Drywall joint compounds
- Brake pads and linings
- Clutches and gaskets
- Industrial materials
- Boilers, furnaces and furnace doors
Although we most often see asbestosis cases in people who have worked in industrial fields, including construction, pipe-fitting, and auto repair industries, our lawyers’ experience with asbestos product identification — and their proven ability to pinpoint the where, when and how of an asbestos exposure — has helped others with no obvious source of prolonged exposure put the puzzle together.
Having the facts on your side is not always enough. Determination is also required. We know how asbestos companies and their insurers operate and defend themselves against these claims because we used to work for them. We match their determination with our own. We will not be deterred by the obstacles they put in our way and will spare no effort toward obtaining justice on your behalf.
