Is a factory to blame?

Hello everyone! I have a question? I have work in a factory for 21 yrs. I'm around alot of chemicals. My Dr. and me looked up one of the chemicals online. It would not let us see the side effects it caused. He told me I could look into it but his jesters lead me to believe I wouldn't get very far. In the past 5 yrs. 7 people have cancer 2 have died. My question is has anyone heard of suing a factory and winning? There are about 1100 employees there and about half knows me. Everyone is pushing me to look into this because I'm a 40 yearold nonsmoker. Thanks for listening.

If you contact a law practice that specializes in asbestos and chemical negligence, they would have the resources to check into the factory you worked in to see if your rights have been violated and if you were indeed affected in anyway by your employment there- and if you have a personal injury claim against them for your current illness.

Until a lawsuit is actually filed, no one will know that you are checking to see if the factory you work for has exposed you to dangerous chemicals. It doesn't hurt to see what the experts have to say to protect your rights.

Good luck, keep us updated.

Hi,

I also find this interesting and would like to know if you have lung issues too.

My husband was exposed to a known lung carcinogen, diesel fumes, during his career. He was a former-smoker, so that threw any thoughts of questioning the safety of the environment to the wind. You are a never-smoker. Might make a difference. Overall, if the company meets OSHA/EPA requirements, it's probably a moot point. A well placed phone call to OSHA/EPA might at least bring some re-investigation into the company.

Good luck,

Welthy
