Prolonged Exposure to Coke Oven Emissions Entails a High Risk for Lung Cancer

Coke is a carbon-containing fuel made from coal which is preponderantly used in the manufacturing process of steel and iron. The emissions of coke ovens involve dust, vapors and gases, as well as various carcinogenic substances such as arsenic and cadmium. Consequently, employees who work in coking plants and coal-tar production plants have a high risk of developing severe conditions, including lung cancer.

If you were diagnosed with lung cancer or other associated condition and believe prolonged exposure to coke oven emissions is the culprit, the attorneys at Environmental Litigation Group, P.C. will dedicate their time and effort to obtain the compensation you are eligible for.
