On December 1, 2012 I entered into a contract for a vinyl flooring install with the retail company I work for 'Lowe's  Home Improvement, Inc. my home has been damaged and my health has been damaged because of the negligence of Lowe's sub contractor and that of Lowe's to act on reported safety, health and policy violations. Lowe's has retaliated by demanding my resignation in writing for filing a complaint. My purchase was as a consumer and my employment had no bearing on resolving this contracted install that has gone horribly wrong. A representative of Lowe's Corporate Ms. Deanie K. Watts called my home and threatened me for filing a complaint when repeated attempts by me were made to have the serious losses addressed.

I contracted for a job that was to take two days, it is now 8 months later and I have two additional rooms that were damaged and my main living space of my home has still not been repaired as promised nor released to me for my use. [continued below]....

..... This main space contains my living room, my kitchen, my dining room and my bathroom. Lowe's is holding my home 'Hostage' while demanding I sign a Release which contains language expressing a full release without compensation for my losses. I have not yet been released from my physicians care. The lung, sinus, skin and eye damage, hospital treatments and ongoing disability due to the break down of my immune system has been well documented. I as a consumer I am entitled to all warranties, promises and 100% Guarantees afforded all consumers despite the fact that I am an employee.

The retaliation against me should be addressed. The loss of health, both physical and emotional, employment, income, benefits, insurances and the continued loss of the use of my home is inexcusable. I have no choice to seek a resolution through the Justice System as repeated attempts for restitution/compensation have been denied me by Lowe's Corporate Representatives. I have received no pay since February 2013, I was denied my vacation pay for the two weeks allotted because I filed for a leave of absence from work. I have been denied short term and long term disability provided by my employer through premium deductions from my previous pay checks. My employer has now cancelled my insurance which further burdens my ability to continue treatment and have access to the medications I have been prescribed.

I am receiving Snap food stamps and have filed for disability based on my diagnosis and the inability to function on a level required for full or part time employment. I have no income, no insurance, no employment, and do not have full use of my own home. I have a contract that Lowe's has breeched and refuses to honor. Their actions are inconsistent with 'normal' resolution process' with regard to 'consumer complaints'. As an employee who made the decision to enter a contracted purchase, I have been horribly retaliated against, civil rights violated by the continued refusal of Lowe's to repair and return my homes main living space to me, threats and employee rights violations have increased my physical and emotional injuries, as well as the duration of my suffering has been increased by Lowe's continued abuse.

I got kicked out of my rebuttals...the sub contractor used 32+ 40 lb bags as well as bonding agents meant for outside use only. I became sick on jan 3,2013 and my difficulty breathing, rashes, hair loss continued to grow worse to the point of no longer being able to function let alone go to work. I have been out of work since Feb. 1, 2013. Mycoplasma Bacterial iinfection directly associated with the inhalation of toxic fine dust contaminates required 7 rounds of antibiotics, hospitol satin for four days while simultaneously receiving multiple IV doses of antibiotics. The break down of my immune system is from long term medical treatment with such strong antibiotics, steroids and other medications to open breathing passages. I was bed bound for 80% of the last eight months. Spinal tap for the high risk of mengitis was performed, 3 CT Scans ,two MRI, numerous lung exrays etc. Dust particles can not be removed from your lungs. Fibrosis which is the scarring of foreign objects that have embedded in your lungs is something I have to be monitored for the rest of my life. I have higher risk of cancer as well. The strong medications can cause liver damage as well stomach ulcers and intestinal damage. I will have to take these medications the rest of my life. I already had dormant RA and lymes both of which became active when the bacterial infection attacked. A possitive bacterial mycoplasma reading is approx. 541 mine was 1,545!

The reports of this misuse of a toxic product and the spillage of cement through other rooms was reported again and again to Lowes with no site check done and no response to my concerns for my homes destruction. My dog also had to have lung exrays, ears scrapped of dust while I under anestesia and thirteen of her teeth had to be removed because of the severe gum infection, she nearly died. I felt like I was going to! Imagine a quick drying self leveling material produces heat when mixed with water. Now put that mixture in your lungs! It felt like my insides were burning and well they were! I still have difficulty swallowing and do not have the lung capacity to even vacuum my floor.

What the?

AUTHOR: Robert - ()

 You seem to be all over the place in your report.

First of all how in the world did an installation of a floor cause your imune system to shut down and cause all of these injuries.  Then what exactly did the installers do that was negligent that caused your injuries?

Next, if this happened in December and you are claming injuries that kept you from working..why were you still getting paid by Lowes in February?

Of course the big question is, that if everything is as you say..this seems like you are expecting it to be a multi-million dollar lawsuit.  If that is the case why haven't you gotten a lawyer?  With a case as solid as you seem to have in your mind there should be attornies banging down your door to take your case on contingency.
