Chemical Exposure Injury Lawyer

The toxicity of a chemical refers to the potential of a substance to cause damage or harm to your body. The toxicity of a chemical depends on the extent to which the substance is absorbed by the body, the chemical structure of the substance, and your body’s ability to detoxify the substance. The hazard of a chemical refers to the probability the substance will cause harm.

Employers are responsible for maintaining a safe work environment, which includes reducing the risk of exposure to chemical hazards and toxic substances. When employers fail to take the proper precautions to prevent chemical exposure, they put workers at risk of serious injury or even death.

Once an individual has been exposed to a toxic or hazardous chemical, it can impact virtually every system in the body, resulting in both short-term and chronic health consequences. Accidents resulting chemical exposure are most likely to occur in the workplace. The Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) has estimated that as many as 32 million workers regularly come in contact with one or more chemical hazards. There are more than 190,000 illnesses and 50,000 deaths each year because of workplace chemical exposure.

Often, injuries resulting from chemical exposure are due from maritime accidents. At James M Gallagher and Associates, our team lawyers can help if you’ve been injured in an offshore accident. You may be entitled to damages or Jones Act compensation.
