Toxic Exposure Attorney in Houston, Texas

The workplace can be a dangerous place. Industrial workers are exposed to many risks that can cause them physical injuries. These injuries can lead to permanent disability or even death. Outside of these obvious, everyday physical risks, though, many workers are unaware of the chemical hazards that surround them in their workplace. This makes them more vulnerable to toxic exposures. It is management’s responsibility to inform and protect the workers from chemical hazards. Sadly, that does not always happen.

As a personal injury attorney in Houston, it is common for me to see clients who have become ill or permanently disabled from toxic chemical exposures in Houston, South Houston, and Pasadena. Many of my clients have also come in grieving a loved one’s death that was caused by toxic chemicals in their workplace.

Although nothing can undo the damage that has been done in many toxic exposure cases, it is your right to pursue justice and financial compensation against the industrial giants that caused your pain and suffering.

Toxic Exposure in the Workplace

According to the International Labour Organization, more than 2.75 million workers die from unsafe work conditions around the world each year. At least one worker dies every 30 seconds from toxic exposure.

The workplace is one of the most common places where chemical exposures occur in the Houston area. Industrial workers are exposed daily to toxic chemicals that they can inhale or come in contact with. This long-term exposure can lead to more serious illnesses later on.

Common toxic chemicals in industrial workplaces include:

  • Asbestos
  • Vinyl Chloride
  • Inorganic Arsenic
  • Lead
  • Chromium
  • Cadmium
  • Benzene
  • Formaldehyde
  • Ethylene Oxide
  • Methylenedianiline
  • Butadiene
  • Methylene Chloride

If you or a loved one has been impacted by any of these chemicals, and if you believe it was caused by long-term exposure in your home or in the workplace, please don’t hesitate to contact me for legal guidance.

Effects of Toxic Exposure

Unprotected exposure to hazardous chemicals can result in acute (immediate) or chronic (long-term) effects. Acute exposures involve rapid and one-time contact with the toxic chemical. Acute or immediate effects can include burns, vomiting, and even death, depending on the chemical toxicity.

Chronic exposure occurs when you are exposed to chemicals at a lower but continuous and repeated concentration. It can lead to long-term health problems such as respiratory or neurological injuries, reproductive problems, and cancer.

As a seasoned personal injury and toxic exposure attorney, I can use this information and your prognosis to determine what your case is worth. In other words, regardless of whether you are suffering from acute or chronic toxic exposure symptoms, I will fight aggressively for the maximum allowable amount of compensation in order to help you cover your treatment, medical bills, and related costs.

How Can a Toxic Exposure Attorney Help You?

Far too often, the damage of chemical exposure cannot be undone. Still, an attorney who is experienced in handling toxic exposure cases can review your unique situation and use it to build a custom legal strategy. Armed with that strategy, your attorney can negotiate aggressively with the insurance company so that you don’t have to.
