Industrial workers face a variety of risks depending on the exact nature of their work environment. One of the more insidious threats industrial workers face to their health is the possibility of exposure to toxic fumes from a chemical spill or some other source. A chemical spill can rapidly produce a cloud of toxic fumes that can cause a variety of injuries, including:
- Permanent damage to the lungs
- Chemical burns to the skin
- Nerve damage
- Neurological injury
For workers who work with dangerous chemicals regularly, injury may come about because of the failure of protective measure such as ventilation systems or personal protective gear. For those who are not normally exposed to the potential risk of toxic exposure, any inadvertent release of toxic fumes can catch them unaware and vulnerable.
If you or a loved one has been injured by toxic exposure related to a chemical spill, we can help you pursue the full compensation you are legally entitled to under the law. Do not leave money on the table by trying to work with your employer’s workers’ compensation insurer on your own.
