Signs and symptoms of Pneumoconiosis
Pneumoconiosis is caused by the inhalation of dust from coal, graphite, or man-made carbon for a long time and occurs in 2 forms: simple and complicated (progressive massive fibrosis). The simple form is usually not disabling, but the complicated form often is.
Your risk of developing the disease depends on how long you have been around the coal dust. Most people with this disease are older than 50. Smoking does not increase your risk of developing this disease, but it may have an additional harmful effect on the lungs.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you may have a claim.
