Environmental Medicine Expert in Workplace Exposure
An environmental medicine expert was requested for a product liability suit involving construction materials. Plaintiff claimed that workplace exposure to wood dust from pressure treated lumber in the construction industry caused him to develop a cancerous tumor. Plaintiff sought economic damages from the manufacturers and retailers of pressure treated lumber for failing to disclose potential health hazards from long term exposure to wood dust.
