Alabama Auto Parts Workers May Be Victims of Environmental Injuries
July 15th, 2014|
Employers have a responsibility to protect the health of their workers, and failures to do so may result in victims filing lawsuits.
Such an Alabama environmental injury case is building as workers at an auto parts manufacturing plant come forward with an assortment of respiratory ailments.
According to an article from NBC News, a worker developed a cough in 2013 and was diagnosed with Asthma. Eight other workers and three former employees at the facility are also suffering from similar conditions.
The workers believe a chemical used in the manufacturing of foam car seats is to blame for their poor health, and testing has confirmed their exposure. But while experts agree this could be the cause of the workers’ health issues, no action is being taken to reduce the risk of chemical exposure in the factory. Furthermore, the injured workers are now struggling to receive the care and compensation they need for their injuries.
