Toxic Exposure in the Workplace
Workers' Compensation Attorney in New Jersey
Many manufacturing jobs in our state utilize a variety of chemicals or
products which can result in toxic exposure to their employees. While
some ingredients may be inert, when mixed with other substances they can
become toxic. Long term exposure to certain substances, as in the case
of asbestos, can lead to injuries or industrial and occupational diseases
over a period of time. Repeated exposure such as in a workplace can lead
to serious illnesses.
Types of Toxic Exposure Injuries
Long term exposure to certain chemicals and ingredients can lead to serious
injuries and illnesses, which can include:
- Mesothelioma or lung cancer
- Brain injuries
- Organ damage
- Central nervous system damage
- Gastrointestinal illnesses
- Skin cancer and related injuries
If you believe you have been exposed to toxic substances at your place
of work that have led to an illness or disease, contact a New Jersey workers'
compensation lawyer for assistance in determining what course of action
you should take. These types of occupational diseases can lead to long
term medical conditions requiring extensive treatment and costs. It is
therefore crucial to have a professional examine the history of your toxic
exposure in order to properly present a workers' comp claim to your employer.
