If your physician asks you if you were exposed to asbestos and/or you are experiencing lung complications then that is a red flag.  Get a copy of your records.  Contact my office if you were diagnosed with any of the cancers or lung diseases listed above.  We will obtain medical records for you if your work exposure and medical information meets the asbestos claims criteria.
