Pulmonary fibrosis is irreversible, permanent scarring of the lungs. Scarring can occur over time due to exposure to environmental hazards. Unfortunately, the fibrosis may not become manifest to the patient until it is too late. In such a scenario – as with most all severe lung conditions – the only option for the patient is a lung transplant.
Inhalation of various abrasives, metal dusts, asbestos, metal carbides (tungsten, titanium, or tantalum, for instance), coal dust, iron oxides, kaolin, fiberglass, styrene, ozone, phosgene, silica and talc are known to cause pulmonary fibrosis.
If a person has been diagnosed as having pulmonary fibrosis, or if they are having to undergo a lung transplant, they should have a lawyer investigate their case. If you need more information on this subject, contact Parker Miller at 800-898-2034 or by email at Parker.Miller@beasleyallen.com.
