Are You the Victim of Chlorine Gas Exposure?
Most people associate chlorine with the summer fun of a swimming pool. Although the chemical can be a reliable way to keep your pool water clean, the gas itself may not always be safe. Chlorine is also found in many industrial and household cleaning products, and prolonged exposure can have serious effects.
If you suspect that you or a loved one may have been exposed to chlorine gas, be on the lookout for some of the symptoms that something might be wrong. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), these symptoms include:
- -Blurred vision
- -Blisters and other skin injuries, including frostbite-like symptoms
- -Burning feeling in the sinuses or eyes
- -Shortness of breath, either immediately after exposure or later
- -Fluid in lungs
- -Nausea and vomiting
Chlorine gas exposure can be incredibly harmful, and victims should seek medical treatment. But even short-term symptoms may have long-term effects. After chlorine gas exposure, you may be struggling to pay medical treatment bills. You may have lost wages because your illness caused you to miss work. Whatever the fallout, an attorney may be able to help you.
If your chlorine gas exposure was caused by someone else’s recklessness — an industrial cleaning company, an irresponsible supervisor, or other negligent actors — you may be entitled to a financial settlement that can help with some of the injuries you have suffered.
