Seeking Justice for Victims of Toxic Chemical Exposure
From deadly asbestos to illegal lead paint, there are a number of toxic chemicals that may be present in our homes, businesses, and consumer products. Although some hazardous materials are perfectly legal to use in certain contexts (and with the right safety gear), unprotected chemical exposure can lead to a variety of serious injuries.
Whether you became injured because of a workplace hazard or developed a long-term illness after using a defective product, you could be eligible for damages from the negligent party. If you need assistance with navigating a complex chemical exposure claim in Pennsylvania, just call on Metzger Wickersham for the powerful legal guidance you need. We’ve got the knowledge and the experience to protect your rights – and discover who is liable for your toxic exposure injuries.
Please note: When in the best interest of the client, toxic chemical exposure cases may be referred to other law firms.
Common Toxic Chemicals and Their Effects
Harmful chemicals are all around us in the modern world, and while some are used safely for industrial purposes, all too many manufacturers are negligent with these caustic compounds. Depending on your specific circumstances, you may be exposed to toxic chemicals through repeat use of a defective product, or when working on a construction site. No matter how you come to be exposed, however, you could be at risk of life-threatening illness, injury, and chronic pain.
Here are the most common toxic chemicals encountered by consumers today:
- Lead paint
- Benzene and organic solvents
- Sulfuric acid
- Uranium waste
- Toxic fumes
Studies have shown that long-term exposure to any of these chemicals can result in brain defects, respiratory problems, and even incurable diseases like cancer. For example, a sustained level of exposure to lead paint can cause permanent brain damage, especially in children under the age of 5. If you inhale asbestos at any point in your life, you may develop a fatal cancer known as pleural malignant mesothelioma.
Some other illnesses you may develop include:
- Hodgkin’s disease
- Respiratory diseases
- Chemical-induced asthma
- Non-traumatic brain injury
- Parkinson’s disease
Navigating an Exposure Claim
Of course, even when the damaging effects of chemical exposure have been clearly documented, it can still be difficult to pursue a toxic exposure claim. This is because exposure cases are exceptionally complex, and may involve multiple negligent parties across the manufacturing or building process. From property owners to employers to manufacturers, your attorney will need to determine who exactly was at fault for your injuries, and build a strong case strategy for the courtroom.
