Toxic ExposureExposure to toxic chemicals may increase your risk of contracting a disease or illness.
A wide range of potential Toxins
Exposure to toxic chemicals may increase your risk of contracting a disease or illness, and these injuries can slowly progress before becoming obvious. Exposures occur when people come into contact with a hazardous toxin or dangerous chemical. In today’s industrialized society the risk of exposure to toxins can occur in a variety of ways, from inhalation to skin contact. People who are at risk of exposure include: construction workers, factory workers, oil-spill clean-up workers, welders, pipe cleaners, and the general public.
Producers of dangerous chemicals or hazardous wastes must take all available safeguards to protect workers and the public from exposure to toxins. Additionally, employers must take steps to protect their employees from exposure to toxic elements. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. If manufacturers or employers failed to take all available safeguards, or refused to take the necessary precautions, you may have suffered an exposure and may have a toxic exposure claim.
