I was diagnosed with stage 4 sinus cancer June last year, and had surgery in July. For almost 40 years I have been in the aircraft business, involved in the overhaul and repair of navy airplanes and its components, being exposed to different types of paints, grease, solvents, toxic fluids, etc, etc.
I submitted a claim with the Department of Labor for compensation and was denied. Has anybody had this experience? If so, I would like to hear about it, and if there's any other way I can do this, maybe recommend a lawyer or otherwise. I would appreciate any input.
