Chemical Exposure & Toxic Torts

Were You Harmed by Chemical Exposure?

Chemical exposure is an all-too common occurrence on the job, especially in the plant and industrial sectors of the workforce. While many employees knowingly take on the added risk of these types of jobs, it is still the employer’s responsibility to ensure that there is safety in the work place. That means implementing guidelines and safety protocols. When this fails to happen, this may be grounds for a toxic tort lawsuit, and the evidence could link to the employer or other negligent party’s actions.

How the Law Defines Toxic Tort

The individual making the claim, or the plaintiff, has the burden of proving that an injury or illness occurred due to the chemical exposure. While many of these cases arise due to negligent employers, it can also happen to the average person who lives in proximity of a facility where they may be more likely to be exposed to chemicals and other toxins.

These are the most common causes of toxic tort:

  • Chemical plant accidents
  • Plant and refinery accidents
  • Industrial accidents
  • Asbestos or mesothelioma exposure

While some incidents, such as explosions, can be the sole cause of illness or injury from chemical exposure, most of the time, the symptoms arise gradually. This can happen for construction workers who become ill due to asbestos particles hidden in building materials.

Chemical exposure is not only confined to the workplace. It can happen at home, a relative’s home, at school—any place that where there is a possibility that there is contamination and the person is constantly in proximity of it. This happens commonly in property contamination cases, such as when homes are close to fracking operations and oil refineries. Whatever the case may be, ask our Corpus Christi personal injury attorney to represent you if you believe your case has merit.
