Common Types of Toxic Exposure Claims

Although many businesses and construction companies have become much more health conscious in recent years, many construction workers are still exposed to dangerous chemicals due to a lack of necessary safety precautions. Without proper ventilation or equipment, asbestos shingles, asphalt, lead-based tools, formaldehyde in plywood, and carbon monoxide can all be extremely harmful and result in a wide range of adverse health effects. While some conditions appear right away, other symptoms of toxic exposure may remain dormant for an extended period of time.

Toxic chemicals can lead to the following conditions:

  • Mesothelioma
  • Respiratory difficulties
  • Neurological damage
  • Kidney failure
  • Skin cancer
  • Lung disease
  • Hodgkin’s disease
  • Silicosis
  • Asbestosis

If you have developed any of the above conditions after working on a construction site, it is imperative you seek medical care as soon as possible and consult with our team of skilled construction accident attorneys. We can help you pinpoint the cause of your illness and seek legal action against those responsible. Depending on the circumstances, you may be entitled to financial reimbursement under workers’ compensation, through civil action, or both.
