Household Toxic Substances
The number of potentially toxic substances that can be found right in your own home might be shocking for some people. While some harmful materials are well known, including things like bleach, drain cleaner, and other heavy chemicals, everyday objects can also be dangerous. Older houses may have lead paint in the walls, which when ingested could lead to lead poisoning. Walls also could be constructed using harmful materials like formaldehyde which contain asbestos. Permanent markers release potentially toxic fumes.
Workplace Toxic Substances
Many people are exposed to toxic substances more frequently and in greater amounts in their careers. All types of positions deal with their own types of exposure, as anything from normal cleaning agents to even long days in the sun can lead to major health issues in the future.
Some common health effects of toxic substance exposure in the workplace can include:
- Radiation poisoning
- Respiratory issues (mesothelioma, chemically induced asthma, and more)
- Vision problems
- Premature aging
- Skin damage (scarring, burning, and more)
Seeking Legal Options
The effects of toxic substance exposure are very rarely immediate and serious. In fact, more often than not this damage accumulates slowly over years of frequent and repeated exposure. This means that being able to prove responsibility or liability for a toxic exposure is a long and difficult battle since the defense will often argue that outside factors could have had just as large of an influence on the condition as the presumed cause.
This means you should not attempt to pursue one of these cases on your own. Attorney James R. Tedford, II is familiar with personal injury laws and the precedents necessary for a toxic substance exposure case. He can put the evidence to work for you protecting your rights and making sure you receive the compensation you are entitled to under the fullest extent of the law.
