Dangerous Substances in the Workplace
Toxic exposure is unlike other types of workplace injuries in that it is not immediate. This can make it difficult for people to connect the illnesses they are suffering with toxic exposure they may have suffered at work. While it is easy to identify the cause of most workplace accidents, injuries caused by toxic exposure may happen years after the actual exposure occurred.
There are many different types of toxic chemicals and substances that one may have been exposed to in the workplace. Some common examples include:
- Silica dust
Many of these toxic substances cause serious injuries and diseases such as:
- Respiratory issues
It is critical that you secure representation that understands how to clearly connect the toxic exposure you suffered in the workplace with the illness you are suffering from.
