Toxic Exposure at the Workplace

Seeking Workers’ Comp Benefits for Your Injuries

Occupational diseases are injuries and illnesses derived from working conditions. Employees who sustain an occupational disease are eligible for workers’ compensation. However, if a negligent third party – such as a chemical manufacturer – is also liable, the employee may file a separate personal injury lawsuit for additional monetary damages.

The following are common toxic substances which can harm workers:

  • Asbestos
  • Lead
  • Pesticides
  • Benzene
  • Acids
  • Mercury
  • Beryllium
  • Cadmium
  • Industrial paint
  • Silica
  • Perennial talc

Inhaling fumes, skin contact with strong chemicals, or accidentally swallowing a harmful substance cause result in several illnesses, which can be life-threatening. Common injuries suffered from toxic exposure include cancers, chemical burns, rashes, brain damage, and neurological complications.
