Workers can be exposed to toxic chemicals while working with products such as benzene, PCE, TCE, heavy metals and other toxins. Often they are not warned and/or not supplied with proper protective equipment. In these cases, the company or business in charge is liable for illnesses and injuries caused by toxic exposure.
On the other hand, residents who live nearby factories and similar facilities which use toxic chemicals may suffer harmful exposure. Sometimes, careless companies dispose of hazardous chemical waste into the environment or allow devastating chemical spills to occur. The responsibility for handling environmental exposure cases typically falls to local, regional, and state governments.
Common injuries caused by toxic exposure include:
- Various forms of cancer
- Traumatic brain injury
- Serious burns or flesh destruction
- Sterility or birth disorders
