Remodeling is one of the most common tasks of construction workers in Georgia. Construction professionals may be hired to remodel and update both commercial and residential buildings. Unfortunately, whenever a construction employee is doing his job in an older building, that construction employee faces the significant risk of exposure to many types of dangerous toxins and chemicals.
If a construction employee gets sick as a result of exposure to any chemicals on-the-job, the construction worker should be entitled to workers’ comp coverage. Workers’ comp claims based on workplace illness can be complicated, especially if illness develops a long time after the initial exposure. An Atlanta workers’ compensation lawyer should be consulted to provide help when this exposure happens and construction workers get sick.
