Atlanta, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/09/2019 -- As one of the leading worker's compensation lawyers in Atlanta and surrounding areas, the team at The Law Offices of Darwin F. Johnson have covered all types of claims from claimants with damaged lungs due to occupational hazards. Whereas many people consider the police, army, or fire services to be dangerous roles, many occupations put people's lungs and overall health in danger. Now, the legal experts advising on occupations that can be damaging to the lungs.

Occupational diseases can come in many shapes and sizes. For instance, cancer can be caused by exposure to second-hand smoke in cars and casinos, and COPD can be caused by exposure to diesel fumes. COPD, lung cancer, and brown lung disease can all develop as a result of exposure to individual fabric particles.

The following employees can be in danger of damaging their lungs via their occupations:

Construction workers inhaling dust from demolitions or renovations; factory workers exposed to chemicals, dust, and gases; factory workers working closely with diacetyl. Also, healthcare workers who are exposed to the powder residue found in latex gloves, and textile workers who are continually breathing in tiny particles that are released from fabrics.

Truckers who are regularly exposed to diesel are also in danger, as are bartenders and anyone who works in environments that encourage people to smoke indoors.

Clearly, a large number of occupations are dangerous for the lungs. Any individuals who are experiencing lung trouble due to exposure received from their profession are urged to contact the team at The Law Offices of Darwin F. Johnson, the premier workman comp attorneys in the Atlanta region.
