Serious Health Problems Demand Serious Action From Louisville Black Lung Disease Lawyer.
Kentucky coal miners are especially vulnerable to developing black lung disease, which is caused by breathing in coal dust over a prolonged period of time, meaning several years or decades. Such a serious occupational exposure disease like black lung often does not appear until someone is in their 50s or older. Symptoms of black lung include shortness of breath and severe coughing. All this coughing and shortness of breath can put physical strain on a person’s heart, resulting in heart failure. People with black lung disease also often develop emphysema, in which a person’s lungs are inflamed and they have trouble breathing.
If you or a loved one is coping with black lung disease caused by working in a coal mine, you may be entitled to compensation. Don’t simply assume that the coal mine owner or its insurance company will compensate you for your injuries. Contact the Shelton Law Group.
