Chemical companies and petroleum companies are notorious for subjecting workers and the public to chemical exposure and toxic torts. These claims arise from the victim’s suffering an injury or illness as the result of this hazardous chemical exposure. Sometimes this exposure can occur over a long period of time, such as the infamous asbestos (mesothelioma) and black lung (coal workers’ pneumoconiosis or CWP) cases experienced by contractors and coal workers. However, the length of time does not excuse the negligence of the Defendant who caused these injuries.
These claims are among the most difficult claims to pursue given the seemingly unlimited resources of these Defendant companies. It is important that you retain an experienced firm that knows how to combat against the inevitable denials and deflections that are sure to follow from the Defendants regarding these exposures.
Additionally, chemical exposure and toxic torts cases typically involve a higher degree of expertise due to their complexity. For example, permanent disfigurement may require a life care plan tailored to your unique circumstances. There may also be substantial future medical care costs associated with your injuries.
