Chemical & Toxic Exposure
Chemical and toxic exposure is a particularly insidious form of workplace injury, occurring when workers come into contact with chemicals like trichloretheylene, perchlorethylene, poly vinyl chlorides, arsenic, cadmium and other heavy metals used in workplace environments. Diseases like mesothelioma (resulting from asbestos exposure), acute myeloid leukemia, lead poisoning, cancer and many others can result from prolonged exposure to toxic chemicals.
Common toxic chemicals workers can be exposed to:
One of the most well-known hazardous chemicals. Mesothelioma-related litigation is the single largest class-action lawsuit in American history
Chemical and toxic exposure is linked to acute myeloid leukemia, immunodeficiency, reproductive problems and many other health complications
While it can be particularly devastating to infants and toddlers, lead poisoning can affect someone of any age, leading to developmental disabilities and other neurological problems
Exposure to manganese can lead to a condition called ‘manganism,’ which is similar in many aspects to Parkinson’s disease, with exposure often resulting from activities like welding, smelting or other metalworking processes
Don’t Wait to Protect Yourself
Because toxic exposure litigation is complex and nuanced, you should seek out an occupational disease specialist or other physician who is familiar with toxic exposure to help you make a proper diagnosis. We at Garcia and Ochoa will be happy to consult with you and point you in the right direction and help you locate a doctor who can recognize the symptoms of toxic injury, and help document your illness for litigation purposes.
If you have been exposed to toxic chemicals in the course of your work, or if you think that you might have been, please contact us today for a free consultation.
