Serious Illnesses And Injuries Caused By Toxins

Workers who perform certain tasks need respirators to prevent the inhalation of dangerous fumes and particles. Many jobs can expose workers to these hazards, including manufacturing, construction, demolition, truck driving, cargo loading and unloading, and industrial cleaning. Any job that involves working with solvents, insulation, gasoline, paint, dust or textiles may expose workers to hazardous substances.

We represent people who have been injured or contracted an occupational disease from toxins such as:

  • Asbestos
  • Diesel exhaust
  • Benzene
  • Silica dust
  • Mold
  • Wood dust and fibers
  • Smoke

Prolonged exposure to these toxins can lead to serious medical problems. Inhaling or ingesting chemicals, gases or fumes can cause lung scarring, emphysema, lung cancer, asbestosis, mesothelioma, gastrointestinal cancer, organ damage and viruses. Contact with certain chemicals can also cause chemical burns. These illnesses and injuries can result in temporary or permanent disability, or wrongful death.
