Paul Fires, Peter Weber, Lori Tunstall Win Adenocarcinoma Death Case

    Received a favorable ruling from the Workers' Compensation Appeal Board when it denied the late employee’s appeal seeking imposition of both lifetime and death benefits and substantial medical benefits. The issue was whether the worker developed stage 3B adenocarcinoma as a result of exposure to various substances, all alleged to be highly toxic, and many of which are used in a client's manufacturing process. The underlying ruling was that the worker's adenocarcinoma, which eventually metastasized and caused her death, was due to her years of cigarette smoking and not her years of alleged exposure to multiple other substances in the workplace.
