What's That Floating in the Air?

A friend of ours sent us a picture of the remodel happening at his place of employment. 

The walls have been taken down...the ceiling has been removed...insulation is falling...we can't tell what's floating in the air, but it doesn't look healthy. 

His employer has made masks available if he feels the need to use one, but he wanted to know if he were to get sick, does something like this fall under workers' compensation guidelines?

The answer is yes...especially depending on what is floating in the air. Many older buildings have very unpleasant "surprises" when remodeling begins taking place.

If you have a disease or illness resulting from your work, then you are entitled to workers' compensation.

For example, workers suffering from asbestosis, which is a disease caused by exposure to asbestos, can receive workers' compensation benefits, as can workers suffering from black lung disease, which is caused by inhaling coal dust.

It can be difficult at times to prove this, but we are ready to listen to you, and see if you have a case. If you have any questions at all...call Eric, Randy, or Sarah at 515-225-4485, or visit us at Loneylaw.com. We're ready to fight for you and get the compensation you deserve.
