West Virginia Chemical Exposure Attorney

Trusted, Dedicated, Experienced Legal Team

Chemical hazards and toxic substances poses a dangerous threat to your health. Whether you work in construction, manufacturing, agriculture, industry or medicine, you may be exposed to toxic chemicals on a daily basis in the workplace. In order for a chemical to become hazardous to a person’s health, contact or entry must be initiated in order for biological effects to occur in the body. Once chemicals enter the bloodstream, they can cause tremendous internal harm which can lead to severe injuries and, in worst cases, even death.

The four major routes of entry include:

  • Inhalation – Breathing in contaminated air is the most common way which workplace chemicals enter your body
  • Skin contact – Upon contact, some chemicals can penetrate the skin and enter the blood stream, such as with chemical burns
  • Digestive system - If food or cigarettes are contaminated, the toxic chemicals may be swallowed accidently.
  • Injection – When a sharp object punctures the skin and injects a chemical directly into the bloodstream.

Types of Toxic Chemicals

While some workers are provided with adequate safety equipment, many workers are forced to surround themselves with extremely toxic materials with little to no protection whatsoever. Being exposed to such toxic chemicals can result in cancer, lung disease, skin conditions, and a variety of other health problems.

The most common chemicals in the workplace include:

  • Asbestos
  • Benzene
  • Mercury
  • Toxic dust vapors
