Hazardous chemicals and poisons exist in most industrial workplaces, and they are also sometimes released from industrial facilities, exposing innocent bystanders to the risk of serious diseases, injuries and fatalities. State and federal laws and various governmental agencies regulate chemical releases from facilities and occupational exposure to hazardous chemicals, poisons and other industrial by-products. However, unlawful toxic exposures and releases still routinely occur in the United States, often with catastrophic results for the victims. The causes of these unlawful toxic exposures and releases may include inadequate policies and procedures, poor training, equipment failures caused by design or manufacturing defects or poor maintenance, and lack of adequate warnings and instructions for the safe use of the equipment and chemical agents involved.
Evaluating chemical exposure and release cases may require the expertise of many professionals, such as engineers, medical doctors, chemists, industrial hygienists, air modeling experts and toxicologists. These cases almost certainly require detailed discovery of the sources of the chemical agents, their toxicities, safety practices utilized to guard against exposure or release, and corporate knowledge concerning the hazards of the chemicals involved. Many victims do not know or suspect that their injuries or diseases were caused by toxic exposures until much later in life. The lawyers at the Law Offices of Michael M. Guerra can help you evaluate whether exposure to toxins may have injured you.
