Workers and other individuals who have been exposed to airborne silica dust created by fracking operations at a natural gas drilling site may be eligible to file a lawsuit against the companies that were responsible for their injuries. According to warnings about fracking published by NIOSH and OSHA, exposure to silica dust can place individuals at risk of developing silicosis or other respiratory diseases.
