It is becoming increasingly common for workers suffering from silicosis and other lung diseases to pursue litigation against companies that they allege exposed them to unsafe levels of crystalline silica. Businesses in a substantial range of industries — such as mining and agriculture, construction, and automotive and industrial product manufacturing — often have their insurance companies deny coverage and refuse to defend them against such claims.
