Exposure to  asbestos, heavy metals, benzene, formaldehyde, acids, flammable substances, mold, radiation and a long list of toxic chemicals contained in hair dyes, inks, dry cleaning fluids, building materials, pesticides, welding and other common products can lead to terrible cancers and diseases that can have a work related connection.

Some clients have developed pancreatic and bladder cancers, lung cancer, mesothelioma  brain and other forms of cancer. Others are suffering from brain damage, eye injury, occupational skin diseases, COPD and lung ailments, organ failure or chemical burns.

How Do You Prove Your Job Caused Your Cancer?
