Although there are many laws designed to protect you from exposure to dangerous chemicals, too often big companies ignore those laws. Some people are subjected to chemical exposure at work, like industrial cleaning chemicals. In other cases, negligent companies allow dangerous chemicals to enter the water supply, possibly hurting thousands of local residents. Some landlords deceive their tenants about the presence of dangerous chemicals in new homes, which can result in lifelong health problems for young children.
You may have a chemical exposure claim if you were exposed to any of a wide variety of dangerous chemicals, including asbestos, lead, mold, and mercury. As you may have experienced firsthand, the effects of chemical exposure can be extremely severe, from damage to the eyes and face to serious illnesses like cancer.
If a company is negligent in their handling of toxic chemicals, innocent people can suffer for a lifetime. However, victims of chemical exposure do have many legal options to hold negligent companies accountable, which can help protect others from suffering the same exposure.
If your chemical exposure was the result of someone else’s carelessness, you deserve help. If you were exposed to dangerous chemicals, you may find yourself with soaring medical bills, unsure of where to turn. You may also find yourself unable to work as much as you previously did due to your injuries.
Fortunately, an experienced attorney may be able to help you obtain compensation for your injury and any missed wages. While this cannot undo the damage done by negligent handling of toxic chemicals, it can help minimize the financial hardship caused by chemical exposure.
