Toxic Exposure

Toxic Exposure

Although there are many laws designed to protect you from exposure to toxic chemicals, too often big companies ignore those laws. Through no fault of your own, you and your family may be in danger of toxic exposure at work or in the home.

Sometimes toxic exposure occurs in the workplace when workers are exposed to chemicals like industrial cleaning products or to toxic fumes. In other cases, toxic exposure happens as a part of everyday life. Negligent companies have allowed dangerous chemicals to enter the water supply, and landlords have deceived their tenants about the presence of dangerous chemicals in new homes.

Regardless of how you came into contact with these chemicals, toxic exposure can be extremely damaging to your family’s health. 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.

You may have a toxic exposure claim if you were exposed to any of a wide variety of dangerous chemicals, including:

  • -Asbestos
  • -Benzene
  • -Lead
  • -Mold
  • -Mercury
  • -Toxic Pesticides

If a company is negligent in their handling of toxic chemicals, innocent people can suffer for a lifetime. However, victims of toxic exposure do have many legal options to hold negligent companies accountable, which can help protect others from suffering the same exposure.

Your Options

If you were exposed to dangerous chemicals, you may find yourself with soaring medical bills, unsure of where to turn. You may also be unable to work as much as you previously did due to your injuries.

If your toxic exposure was the result of someone else’s carelessness, an experienced attorney may be able to help you obtain compensation for your injury. While this cannot undo the damage done by negligent handling of toxic chemicals, it can help minimize the financial hardship caused by chemical exposure.

The amount of money you will receive depends on the severity of your injuries, but it also depends on the experience, reputation and skill of your attorney. In short, you need an attorney who can maximize your recovery.
