Injured By Toxic Chemicals Or Chemical Exposure?

If you've been injured through exposure to dangerous chemical substances -- including carcinogenic agents, lead, benzene, silica, harmful solvents, hazardous waste, and pesticides -- in the environment, on the job, or in consumer products, a toxic torts lawyer can provide the legal advice and guidance that you need.

Due to the serious ongoing effects that toxic exposure can have on your life and the lives of your family members, it is vital to discuss your situation with a chemical exposure lawyer as soon as possible.

What Are Toxic Torts And How Can Personal Injury Lawyers Help?

A "toxic tort" is the more formal term for when someone suffers a serious injury as a result of exposure to toxic materials. In these situations, injury lawyers work with their clients to investigate the circumstances of the chemical exposure, file claims in state or federal court, and stand up against corporations and insurance companies who deny wrongdoing. Toxic exposure lawyers can help you get the compensation you need to pay for your medical bills, ongoing medical expenses, and other costs after you've been exposed to harmful chemicals.

The Dangers Of Toxic Chemical Exposure

Toxic exposure is not just a legal issue, it is a health-related issue with serious ramifications. Whether as a result of environmental contamination, faulty products, or any other cause, the consequences of toxic exposure may include:

  • Mesothelioma, asbestosis, and related health effects in asbestos exposure cases.
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning.
  • Birth defects.
  • Silicosis (a lung disease that is caused by exposure to silica dust).
  • Lead poisoning, which can come from exposure to lead paint and a variety of other materials that used to regularly contain lead.
  • Bone marrow issues, blood cell damage, leukemia, and other forms of cancer from benzene exposure.

Sometimes, an exposure injury is so severe that it leads to the loss of a loved one. In these situations, a personal injury attorney can help you file a wrongful death claim against those who caused the loss.
