Chemical Exposure in the Workplace

There are countless ways in which a person can be exposed to toxic chemicals. For example, asbestos fibers, lead dust, and paint fumes can all be inhaled through the lungs. Other toxins can be ingested through contaminated drinking water. Sadly, the risk of toxic exposure is often increased for workers who work in and around hazardous conditions.

Common causes of chemical exposure in the workplace include:

  • Lack of information on dangerous chemicals
  • Inadequate protection against hazardous chemicals
  • Improper storage of chemicals or dangerous products
  • Fraudulent claims about the safety of a product
  • Failure to recognize the presence of toxins

Injuries Caused By Groundwater Pollution & Contaminants

Toxic tort litigation is a highly technical area of law that involves aspects of science, environmental science, chemistry, and the physiological impact of toxins on the human body. Our firm provides representation to people who have been injured by exposure to toxins. One of the most common forms of toxic tort contamination is groundwater pollution.

Drinking water can be contaminated by a number of pollutants, including:

  • Mercury
  • Chromium
  • Tetrachloroethylene
  • Trichloroethylene
  • Pesticides
  • Benzene

When these pollutants are introduced into a person's body through contaminated drinking water, it is not uncommon for serious personal injury or wrongful death to occur. In some situations, the injured person may be able to seek damages from manufacturers and the parties that were responsible for the contamination. Call our firm to learn about your options.
