How many years must we labor to breathe, before feeling free to exhale? The answer my friend, is blowing in the wind. Construction site toxic dust is blowing in the wind.
The New York Board of Workers’ Compensation defines an “occupational disease” as “illness caused by work or working conditions”. Sometimes, an occupational disease may be “latent”, meaning it takes years before becoming evident.
Latent illnesses are difficult to link to occupational hazards; especially when environmental in nature; for example, construction site toxic dust.
A worker’s claim of latent occupational illness will most likely be denied by the responsible insurance carriers.
But not on Joe Romano’s watch. Read below…
Sixteen years later, finding himself in the fight of his life, the responsible insurance carrier refused to pay, insisting that Kevin’s current lung cancer was his own fault and not occupational.
Joe pulled his troops together and went to battle in court, for Kevin.
Kevin and his family may finally breathe easy, however there shall be no resting on laurels for the legal teams of The Law Offices of Joseph A. Romano, P.C.
