Many people work in industries that use engines fueled by diesel, such as train operators, engineers, truck drivers, and heavy-equipment operators. When such fuel burns, it produces dangerous fumes that are only now coming to light as a cause of cancer and other illness. Lung diseases and cancer are highly common. Drivers with over 20 years’ experience have an increased risk for lung cancer because of such fumes. Many studies have now shown that exposure to such fumes can cause a variety of illness. If you have worked around such fuel for years and have developed a disease or illness, you may want to file a diesel exhaust lawsuit to help get restitution.
You Have Cancer/Upper Respiratory Problems
In most cases, you won’t know that you became ill because of fumes and vapors from such fuel. You may only know that you got cancer or have severe upper respiratory problems, such as COPD. Therefore, if you worked in an industry that kept you around such fumes for extended periods and has an illness, they could be related. It’s up to you to get representation from a lawyer to expedite the process and hopefully win your case.
You Are Sick All The Time
Many times, people are sick all the time for no apparent reason. They get everything tested, and all the tests come back negative. Cancer and other problems can take years to show on tests, and your doctor may use those testing options as a last resort. If you believe your illness could be caused by fumes from fuel, you may want to consider a diesel exhaust lawsuit soon.
A diesel exhaust lawsuit won’t make you well but can give you the money you need for medical treatment and the like. Contact Diesel Injury Law today or visit www.villagewestvet.com for more information.
