Both industrial workers and “everyday people” may be exposed to extremely dangerous, life-threatening, and illness-inducing toxic substances. Workers may be exposed to toxic substance in factories, chemical plants, manufacturing facilities, industrial facilities, and elsewhere. Toxic substances may lead to cancer, abnormal cell growth, and other physical abnormalities. If you were unknowingly or negligently subjected to toxic substances while you were working at your job, you may have a viable claim for compensation in a personal injury lawsuit.
If you were not provided with proper protection but should have been, you may seek compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost income, and more. Our West Virginia industrial accident lawyers represent clients who were exposed to toxic substances. It is important to preserve your rights so that you will be able to proceed in a timely and appropriate manner. Tiano O’Dell offers a complimentary consultation to discuss your case.
Chemical and Hazardous Toxic Exposure
If you were unexpectedly exposed to toxic substances at work due to the negligent conduct of another, a personal injury suit may be appropriate, even if Worker’s Compensation applies. Some of the toxic substances include:
- Lead paint
- Asbestos – often leads to mesothelioma
- Vinyl chloride
- Heavy metals
- Chemical spills
- Carbon monoxide
- Contaminated water
Employers are required to properly train employees who are exposed to toxic substances. Inadvertent exposure to toxic chemicals can lead to permanent physical and/or mental ailments. If an employer intentionally and knowingly exposes an employee to toxic substances, punitive damages may be sought for egregious conduct.
