Diesel-related Illnesses

Numerous occupational diseases have now been attributed to diesel exposures.

That said, tying the illness to the exposures remains complicated. While many occupations are exposed to diesel exhaust, there are other toxic exposures that are unique to certain trades. Diesel Injury Law is familiar with the illnesses associated with various occupations. We prove your case by consulting with top experts, including industrial hygienists, toxicologists, occupational medicine doctors, oncologists and epidemiologists.

Lung, bladder, stomach, kidney and throat cancers have been linked to diesel exposures. So to have cancers of the nose and mouth.

There are over three hundred variations of cancer. If you suspect that your cancer may be attributable to your work around toxins like diesel exhaust, call Diesel Injury Law and let us help make that determination.
