What to do if you are Diagnosed with Silicosis?

Silicosis symptoms usually don’t appear until many years after exposure. If you begin noticing any of the symptoms above, particularly if you work or have worked in the below areas you should see a doctor immediately.

  • Mining
  • Construction
  • Glass manufacturing
  • Roofing

There is no specific test for silicosis, however, your doctor will likely ask you about your breathing, conduct scans, and a lung function test, and ask you about your work history. Seeing a doctor is also important for your silicosis legal claim. You want to have medical evidence to prove the symptoms you are suffering. For this reason, as soon as you start noticing any symptoms, you should make note of them.

Keep all employment records and document anything you think might be relevant to your claim at your worksite.
