Recovering Compensation For Asthma Due To Workplace Exposure Or Injury

Asthma is often caused — or made worse — by conditions in the workplace. Hundreds of different kinds of known irritants can cause serious respiratory symptoms in workers. In fact, it is a growing problem in Minnesota and throughout the United States. Every year, more and more workers are diagnosed with asthma related to occupational exposure.

At the Fellman Law Office, we represent injured workers in the St. Paul-Minneapolis area and throughout Minnesota. Our clients are people who have had their asthma or other occupational diseases made worse by work conditions. They also include people who have been newly diagnosed with asthma.

Contact us today to discuss your options after developing asthma due to your job or workplace.

Asthma Symptoms And Your Work Environment

Symptoms of work-related asthma include wheezing, chest tightness, coughing and shortness of breath. They are different for everyone and can differ depending on the severity of the chemical exposure.

Sometimes symptoms of asthma are "latent," which means that they do not appear right away. This means that an asthma diagnosis today can be linked to exposure that occurred years ago or exposure that was repeated and slow over a long period of time.

At our law firm, we represent people who have developed asthma because of work in many different work environments, including:

  • Chemical plants
  • Paper mills
  • Construction work
  • Mining operations
  • Gas stations
  • Work for airlines or at airports
