If you or a loved one have been diagnosed with Silicosis call now to protect your legal rights and potentially qualify for a claim for financial compensation.
Silicosis is an incurable disease with serious health consequences, including chronic lung conditions, serious heart problems, need for a lung transplant, greater risk of developing asbestos-related illnesses, and even death. Estimates suggest that 1-2 million U.S. workers are at risk for developing silicosis.
The consequences of this preventable disease are personally, emotionally, and financially devastating for victims and their families. These families often suffer from the loss of income and inability to work in the future, high medical bills, inability to partake in everyday activities, required day-to-day care by family members, ongoing treatment for chronic conditions, and the sadness of seeing a loved one ill.

Silicosis is a preventable disease caused by exposure to silica dust. Crystalline silica particles are too small to be seen and workers can be exposed to dangerous levels of silica dust without even knowing it. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has determined properly working safety gear such as respirators, gas masks and personal protective equipment (PPE) shield workers and keep silica dust from being inhaled. There are also state and federal safety guidelines that must be strictly adhered to in order to protect people working in an environment with silica.
Silicosis is a preventable disease that is needlessly risking the lives of millions of Americans.
