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
  • Allergies

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.
