Our client, a cement truck driver for Allied Readymix, received a $175,000.00 award after developing a condition called Restrictive Airways Dystrophy Syndrome (RADS) as a result of inhaling a fair amount of cement in an accidental spill. The insurer initially disputed the diagnosis, contending the driver suffered from chronic cardio-obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD). But we advocated forcefully that it was clear from the doctor that the work-related accident caused the client’s condition, and he was awarded a settlement.
Every case is different and results depend on their specific circumstances. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.
