Florida Toxic Exposure Attorneys

Toxic Exposure & Workers' Comp

Unfortunately toxic exposure on-the-job can take many forms and may not show up until after a prolonged exposure. A job may involve handling potentially hazardous materials or a toxin can spill, exposing workers to unusually high levels of dangerous substances. Some dangerous chemicals and elements that can be found in the workplace include asbestos, benzene, vinyl chloride, manganese, mercury, paints, solvents, plastic production, welding materials and toxic exhaust, among others.

For too many workers we find out after the fact that their job led to their disability. Asbestos exposure is known to cause mesothelioma, a debilitating lung disease that can lead to death. The dangers of the welding profession are well known. The welder is exposed to manganese fumes that are toxic and have been linked to Parkinson's disease, brain damage, and something known as "welder's syndrome," which results in tremors, depression, slurred speech and poor balance.

Welding jobs are found in many lines of work including glass and steel mills, metal plant, pipe fitting and railroad construction.

Both the FDA and OSHA require warning labels be placed on dangerous products in the workplace. An employer is supposed to conduct safety training and offer the appropriate protective gear and clothing.

Many of the effects from exposure to toxic chemicals last a lifetime and may include brain damage, cancer, blindness, burns, reproductive harm, lung damage, organ damage, skin scarring and disfigurement, and eye damage. Some of these exposures continue to worsen in time such as mesothelioma and Parkinson's disease.

Some diseases that result from an exposure to toxins may not show up immediately such as cancer, but can develop over time due to the workplace exposure.

If you have been harmed by toxic exposure in the workplace, you should contact the lawyers at Farah & Farah who will preserve your workers' compensation rights. You may be able to recover medical expenses, lost wages, and monetary compensation for your toxic exposure-related illness.
