Especially in industrial occupations, exposure to toxic chemicals can reach a level where it can cause serious health issues and maybe even the death of the victim. Depending on the circumstances surrounding the exposure, symptoms can come on very suddenly, as in the case of a chemical spill, or develop over time when the worker is exposed to a low level of a dangerous toxin over a period of months or years while working.
When employees develop these conditions as a result of their job, they have the right to seek workers’ compensation benefits. Toxic exposure claims can sometimes be very difficult to prove, and it is important to have an experienced attorney representing you from the start.
