CLO2 Exposer

I was Exposed to CLO2 and other chemicals that may be formed in a 3rd stage
D-2 Bleaching tower process,  I was working on the top clearing away pulp
material from the gear box and had to get on my knees to see under the gear
box, this was all done to prepare it for painting,the floor was a grating
floor and there was some kind of purge or vent pip under me, and at the
level I was working the gas was much stronger than when standing, I could
taste the chemicals, and complained to employees of the contractor and Stone
Container personnel, They all said not to worry it was harmless, it burnt my
eyes, mouth, throat, nose, and made my teeth feel like chalk.
After my second day on the job I was hospitalized for three days. I now have
Lung damage,seizures,sleeping disorder, chemical sensitivity, depression,and
I never had any of these problems before and no history to assume this, but
still Stone is saying they were already there, I just think that they must
say this on all injure cases to try to protect them selves. But I would like
to get a history on Stone Container injures,and also how many people have
had seizures from exposure to these chemicals because Stone's tox. expert is
saying that the chemicals could not cause seizures and has also stated that
I have had all these problems before with out any proof, I thought that an
expert would use an expert process to form an opinion and get a history on
me before giving such a invalid opinion, please help me on this.
