Severe Lung Disease Caused by Toxic Exposure
A number of severe lung diseases may be caused by exposure on a semi-regular basis to hazardous chemicals or dust particles. Many patients who are diagnosed with a severe lung disease may be unaware of the connection to a workplace exposure, particularly if the exposure occurred a number of years ago. Our attorneys would like to review your situation if you have been diagnosed with any of the following serious respiratory conditions in the past five years: pulmonary fibrosis, any interstitial lung disease, silicosis, bronchiolitis obliterans, sarcoidosis, berylliosis or chronic beryllium lung disease, metal lung disease, pneumoconiosis or non-smoker’s lung cancer.
The legal team at Hardison & Cochran, Attorneys at Law represents individuals in North Carolina who have been injured or developed diseases through exposure to toxic chemicals or hazardous materials in the work place. We can review the specifics of your respiratory disease diagnosis and your employment history and determine whether there is a causal link between your disease and workplace exposure to a hazardous chemical. If your disease was caused by another’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation from the maker of the hazardous chemical. Let our dedicated attorneys provide a free review and discuss your legal options.
