Respiratory disorder due to prolonged chemical exposure working in a factory

I enquired about the same earlier but there was no reply and I guess it was in the wrong category.
I used to work as a labor in a small scale manufacturing industry engaged in detergent production. Due to long hours of exposure to detergents' dust and raw materials, it has caused problems in my respiratory system in the form of asthma and irritation to the eyes, causing mild blindness. I am now temporarily totally disabled, and after the consultation with my doctor, he found out that my condition is worsening. I kept on having an asthma attack that lasts for over a day or two and now requires intensive care resulting in increased medical expenses, which is more than I can bear apart from my family's needs. I filed for a disability claim, but the employer denied it. My colleague asked me to consult a disability lawyer (, but I don't know if its the right move to make legally as I also need to sue my employer and my company for the troubles they have caused. I would really appreciate it if anybody could help me with advice
