“Carlos” (not a real person) was never one to shy away from a tough and dirty job. He had worked on the city’s roads for 15 years, dealing with asphalt and wet cement on a daily basis, and was accustomed to coming home with all manner of stains on his clothes. He was well aware of the dangers of inhaling the small particles of the various substances he worked with, and always wore a dust mask to protect himself.
One day, his supervisor presented him with a new model of mask. The day was hot and windy, and Carlos’ team was laying down fresh pavement. Carlos found himself short of breath on more than one occasion, but he chalked up the mild discomfort to the weather and the strenuous working conditions.
After work, Carlos started suffering from a stubborn cough. It got worse as the night went on, and he finally checked himself into the hospital later that evening. The wet, hacking cough persisted for days, rendering Carlos unable to sleep for long stretches and making him miserable when he was awake.
Carlos felt that the new mask the company had provided was to blame. When he did some research, he found that the new mask was less expensive than the brand of masks the company previously had used. He also discovered that several other workers had lodged complaints over the masks, and even a few lawsuits. Carlos consulted a personal injury attorney and also filed a claim against the city for endangering his and other workers’ well-being to save a few dollars on cheap masks.
It was tough going, with both the mask manufacturer and the city trying to shift the blame for Carlos’ condition to each other. Meanwhile, Carlos struggled even to breathe properly and couldn’t return to work to pay his bills.
