I worked in a printing shop for 5 years that implemented no ventilation and used massive amounts of vinyl chloride based ink, solvent based adhesives, benzene, methylene chloride, hexane, perchlorethylene, trichloroethylene, and toluene unbeknownst to me. These were also heated throughout the day, it made vapors daily, and not ventilated outside. Customers even complained of the smell. My boss provided no MSDS sheets, training or protection. I had strange illnesses since I started working there, unexplained abnormal EKGS, breathing problems, and reproductive issues... I also worked there while pregnant, and had 2 clear breast exams by 2 different doctors right before my pregnancy. 18 months after I gave birth, I was diagnosed with a very aggressive breast cancer that had spread to my lymph nodes. (May 2012). 4 tumors. My life was ruined. and I was an office worker. No lawyer seems to even let me explain it all. I was around some real bad stuff. This former employer also disposes these chemicals in regular garbage, and pays off fire inspectors to pass him. He has OSHA violations on record. Should I even bother with finding someone to take this case? It seems to be extremely complicated to even get a lawyer to listen to me> I really need to know if this is even a legitimate case.I've been trying since February of 2013.. Thank you
