Work Associated Irritable Larynx Syndrome

Work Associated Irritable Larynx Syndrome
Has anyone else been diagnosed with Work Associated Irritable Larynx Syndrome or something similar? WC has initially denied the claim even though the chemical exposures happened at work - the last one sent me to the hospital for 3 days. If I'm not around chemicals I'm fine but when I am exposed I need to use an inhaler to breathe. I've become sensitive to a lot more odors/fumes than just the work chemicals. What kind of disability rating should I expect? I'm new at this and would appreciate any input. Thanks

each state has their own rules; some use the AMA guides, others are specific to their state and other use wage loss.
depends on your state.

RE: Work Associated Irritable Larynx Syndrome
disability ratings are usually based on the loss of function from normal.
an injury to any part of the body can result in any rating from 0 to 100% depending on how that person recovers.
there is no way to predict any one person's rating.

1171 - thanks for the link; that gave me a much better understanding of how things work. I would still be interested in hearing of any one else's experience with respiratory issues.
