Legal Aspects for Making Coal Dust and Hard Metal Pneumoconiosis Claims

PUBLISHED 21 Jun 2013

Pneumoconiosis is a type of occupational medical condition caused by long term exposure to coal dust or hard metals. Victims are mainly the workers in coal mines or metal mines or those who work in the processing of different metals and coals. The condition deteriorates occupational functioning, leading to lower finances. Being emotionally draining, this medical condition is apparently negligence on the part of the company and therefore, workers can demand compensation.

What do you mean by Coal Dust/Hard Metal Pneumoconiosis?

One of the most common occupational lung diseases, Pneumoconiosis is caused by the high intensity or long term inhalation of different types of dust like coal dust from the mines or dust involving hard metals like cobalt or tungsten. The dust leads to obstruction of breathing and in long term may lead to scarring of lung tissues along with fibrosis or lung cancer.

Mostly, the first effects of Pneumoconiosis are seen within five years of long term exposure to coal or hard metal dust. But the duration is reduced in case of overexposure.
