He should talk to a personal injury firm, but ideally one that also does some criminal / DUI work.
They will be able to pursue maximum compensation for him, and also guide him through the criminal process and obtain information for him so he understands how the case is being handled on the...Read more »
It sounds like you may have an occupational disease. Unless some 3rd party (read: not your employer) was responsible for your condition, you are likely limited to a workers' compensation claim.

It depends on who is asking her to sign the release. If it is the store's risk management or legal representative, then I would definitely advise her to talk to a lawyer first. Most attorneys do a free consultation (probably by phone) so she can get her specific questions answered.
