Podcast on injuries to soldiers from exposure to toxins in Iraq and Afghanistan
I have blogged a few times about veterans claiming compensation for injuries related to exposure to toxins and other hazards. In 2008, sixteen Indiana National Guard soldiers filed suit against military contractor Kellogg Brown and Root (KBR), for allegedly exposing them to a cancer-causing toxins. Go here and here for more on that story. More recently, I posted a link to a story on possible health hazards soldiers are getting exposed to in Iraq and Afghanistan as a result of the burning of hazardous and medical waste. Now, the Legal Talk Network has a short radio podcast discussing the most recent developments in this area. To listen to the program go here (if that link does not work for you try here or here).
