Were You Exposed to Dangerous Chemicals in the Workplace?

There are many different substances, chemicals, gases and solvents that are dangerous to workers and can cause injury, illness or death, such as asbestos, radiation, and other toxic chemicals. Exposure to certain poisons or substances often has long term repercussions, and may not become evident until many years after the exposure, such as asbestos exposure resulting in mesothelioma or radiation exposure leading to cancer.

If you or a loved one has been exposed to toxic substances in the workplace, get in touch with our legal team. We have extensive experience in helping injured clients and their families get the compensation they deserve after suffering from an injury, illness or death from toxic exposure. With years of experience in workers' compensation cases, you can rely on our team to provide outstanding representation in your time of need.

Common Types of Occupational Diseases

Occupational diseases are any long-term health complications that arise because of exposure to harsh working conditions, toxic chemicals, or constant contact with harmful substances.

These afflictions can have life-threatening complications, including cancer, lung diseases, and skin diseases. If your working environment caused serious occupational hazards such as the risk for occupational disease, then you may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits.

Skin and lung diseases are some of the most common occupational diseases. Workers exposed to sunlight, chemicals, and wet skin for long periods of time can develop melanoma, skin cancer, severe sunburns and rashes, chemical burns, and eczema. Lung diseases such as asbestosis, black lung, and occupational asthma may arise from the inhalation of chemicals, poor air quality, and exercise-induced asthma. Other serious concerns for workers include carpal tunnel from repetitive movements of the fingers or wrists, vision complications, and foot problems from hours of standing.
