Chemical & Toxic Exposure

A person may not realize he or she has been a victim of chemical inhalation until months, even years after exposure to the source of the illness or injury. He or she may feel as if the illness manifested out of nowhere. Doctors may have difficulty diagnosing the symptoms and identifying the causes. The moment may come when it’s too late for the victim to avoid the life-long debilitating effects of chemical inhalation.

If the scenario described above sounds familiar, call Page Law. We will evaluate your inhalation injury case and talk with you about your rights and options. You may be entitled to compensation for the damage due to the chemical exposure. Call (314) 322-8515 for a free, no obligation consultation.

The Invisible Dangers of Chemical Inhalation

Chemical inhalation is dangerous because of its subtle nature. Toxic chemicals can dissipate into particles or gases that are invisible to the naked eye. Without knowing, a person may be exposed to chemicals for a prolonged period, increasing the risk of severe illness as time passes. Minor exposure to chemicals may cause:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Coughing
  • Vomiting
  • Nausea
  • Chest Pain
  • A burning sensation

If the chemical exposure is potent and the length of exposure is long enough, the victim may suffer persistent respiratory problems, bronchitis, various forms of cancer, and even death.

Where and How It Can Happen

There are many situations in which chemical inhalation can occur. Workers in industrial and construction sectors often encounter toxic chemicals every day. There are many safety regulations protect workers from the dangers of chemical exposure. However, not all companies adhere to these regulations as they should.

A break in safety protocol can lead to disastrous events such as fires, leaks, or even explosions. A “minor” oversight like inadequate ventilation can cause serious illness to a worker. It is ultimately up to companies to strictly enforce established safety codes and to properly train employees.

Toxic chemicals are not restricted to the workplace. Whole communities can be at risk of chemical inhalation if corporations act in a negligent manner. If a company fails to comply with chemical disposal procedures, the company may pollute the air or groundwater with harmful substances. Specific laws are put in place to protect the people from such harmful practices. When these laws are ignored and people are injured, lawsuits can be filed for compensation and to deter corporations from similar conduct.
