PA Toxic Tort Attorneys
In today’s environment, we are exposed to chemicals and toxins on almost a daily basis. Although this has become almost a normal part of life, there are some instances in which toxic exposure is extreme. This can often happen in the workplace. If you have been exposed to toxic substances at work and that exposure has caused substantial medical issues and medical debt for you, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit against your employer.
If you were exposed to toxic substances outside of work, it may still be important to pinpoint who was responsible for your exposure.
An injury lawyer could help you navigate these often confusing issues to make sure you are treated fairly.
Types of Toxic Exposure
Toxins are all around, but it is the responsibility of employers, contractors, landlords, business owners, and others to make sure that people are not exposed to dangerous amounts of these substances. Here are some examples of the types of toxic substances that can cause lifelong health issues.
Asbestos was a building material used years ago in homes and businesses. It was discovered that this material can have fatal effects on people. It is not supposed to be in homes or businesses today.
Although pesticides are legal and safe to use in some cases, there are limits and regulations in place concerning how much, where, and when these chemicals can be used.
