What is emphysema?
The condition is caused by the inhalation of substances, such as dust, that cause the air sacs in the lungs to become damaged and enlarged. Factory, warehouse, and construction workers are more susceptible to the condition because of the nature of their work environment. The most common symptoms include:
- Tightness in the chest
- Persistent cough
Am I Eligible to Claim Compensation?
If you can demonstrate that your employer’s negligence was responsible for your emphysema, there is a strong possibility that you have a valid case. Negligence can take the form of:
- A lack of adequate safety precautions
- Neglecting to provide essential training
- Ignoring complaints about excessively dusty and dangerous working environments
