Toxic Chemical Exposure Accidents
Sugarland Personal Injury Attorney
For better or worse, toxic chemicals and materials are an inherent part of our industrialized society. Unfortunately, the best of care is not always taken in handling these substances or in protecting the people who work in and around them and those who live near these industrial facilities.
The Sugar Land personal injury attorneys at The León Law Firm, P.C. handle cases involving exposure to toxic chemicals on behalf of individuals and workers throughout the community. These include matters such as:
- Asbestos exposure
- Exposure to welding rod fumes
- Benzene exposure
- PCB exposure
- Chemical burns
- Radiation exposure
- Refinery accidents
Because of the way in which the workers' compensation system is set up in Texas, people who suffer toxic chemical exposure injuries at work are not allowed to file personal injury lawsuits against their employers unless their particular employer has chosen not to pay into the system. In these cases, a workers' compensation claim is the injured worker's only recourse unless it can be shown that a third party was liable.
If you are working for an employer who has placed you at an off-site location of another company (3rd party), you may have a claim against the 3rd party if the their negligence is found to have contributed to your injuries. This is very common in a refinery setting. Our dedicated firm will investigate for all possible negligent parties in order to pursue the maximum compensation you may be entitled to.
