Toxic Substance Exposure Claims
Exposure to a toxic substance can be hazardous to your health or even deadly. Sadly, workers in many different industries are routinely exposed to chemicals and compounds that can have a temporary or permanent adverse effect on their health. Some industries that often require workers to handle or work around toxic substances include:
- Waste disposal
Employers are required to inform their workers of the presence of potentially dangerous substances and to provide proper training on how to safely handle and dispose of them. If you are exposed to a toxic substance while at work and are injured or fall ill, you may be eligible for workers’ comp benefits. These benefits could provide financial coverage for your exposure-related costs, including medical bills, lost wages from time off work, and medical travel expenses, to name a few.
