Lung Injuries

Lung injuries in the workplace often come as a result of exposure to toxic substances, chemicals, fumes, unsafe ventilators and other types of poisoning. Exposure to harmful chemicals or materials can alter your life forever, resulting in asthma, permanent pulmonary disease, loss of lung function, The consequences of a lung injury can include lifelong conditions that can make breathing more difficult and require expensive treatment and medication. Asthma, for example, may be forced to use inhalers for the rest of their lives. These types of exposure can permanently damage the sense of smell, making you hypersensitive to many ordinary odors, or unable to detect other dangerous ones.

Being trapped in a fire or in a motor vehicle after an accident can also expose your lungs to harmful substances. Sometimes a blunt or strong trauma to the lungs can lead to a serious respiratory problem.
