When I am driving behind a bus and smell that awful diesel smell I shut the windows, closed the vents and hold my nose.

But, you might not realize it those fumes can kill

For the fist time, a widow of a transit worker rightfully recovered widow benefits in a New York Workers Compensation Claim. This is the only legal forum where such a claim has been found payable under the law — the worker died from cancer related to exposure to such fumes.

Many workers, especially transit workers (bus drivers, mechanics and others) are often times needlessly exposed to fumes that unfortunately can kill.

If you are concerned about the affects of diesel fumes on your health, speak to your doctor and contact a qualified Workers’ Compensation lawyer in New York.  You can also request our free book on navigating Workers’ Compensation claims here.
