Asbestos and Toxic Exposure Notice
If you believe you were exposed to asbestos or other toxins at any jobsite, you should be aware of your legal rights.
Please note that based on new Pennsylvania law, if you were exposed to asbestos containing products or other toxins and have been diagnosed with a related medical condition, you may have a Workers’ Compensation case against your employer AND a case against the manufacturers of the toxic products. In certain circumstances, if a Workers’ Compensation case cannot be filed you may be able to sue your employer directly. Previously you would not have been permitted to file a case against your employer for benefits. This claim would be a claim filed in Common Pleas Court and not a Workers’ Compensation claim so this is an exception to the Workers’ Compensation Act allowing you to bring a claim directly against your employer.
Please be advised that the following disease processes have been linked to exposure to asbestos related products:
|· Mesothelioma||· Esophageal Cancer|
|· Lung Cancer||· Colon Cancer|
Please also note that exposure to benzene may permit you to file a claim for the development of the following diseases:
|· Leukemia||· Chronic Myelomonocytic Leukemia (CMML)|
|· Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML)||· Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL)|
|· Myloplastemia||· Multiple Myeloma|
|· Aplastic Anemia||· Non Hodgkins Lymphoma (B-Cell Lymphoma or Follicular Lymphoma)|
|· Refractory Anemia|
