You need to notify your employer, in writing, of the air quality issues in the office. If you are experiencing breathing difficulties as a direct result of the air quality, contact your employer's worker's compensation provider and get examined by a doctor for your breathing issues. If the conditions are so bad that you are seriously injured, you may be able to make a claim outside of worker's compensation if the behavior of your employer rises to the level of quasi-criminal behavior (due to the knowledege of the air quality and still exposing his employees to these conditions.  Contact an experienced personal injury lawyer who can evaluate your case and advise you of the proper course of action to protect you and compensate you for your injuries, if any.

Personal Injury
Have you been injured in accident that was someone else's fault? Has a doctor's mistake caused long-term health issues? Have you been hurt by a defective product? Under state personal injury laws, you may be entitled to compensation if you are hurt as a result of another person or company's negligent, reckless or deliberate actions. Personal injury lawyers work with the victims of all kinds of accidents, including auto accidents, motorcycle crashes, truck crashes, boating accidents, plane crashes, workplace injuries and railroad accidents. You should also hire a personal injury attorney if you've been injured as a result of dental or medical malpractice, a defective product, nursing home abuse, a slip and fall accident on someone else's property or a dog bite. Your personal injury law firm can help you collect money to pay for medical expenses, temporary or permanent disability, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other injury-related expenses.
