We Understand The Dangers Of Chemical Exposure

Exposure to hazardous chemicals on the job is a risk in workplaces, including many factories, chemical processing plants, construction sites and industrial settings. Chemical exposure injuries may affect the lungs, skin and other vulnerable parts of the body such as the eyes. Chemical burns and inhalation injuries are other common hazards.

Chemical exposure injuries may occur suddenly, such as when a tanker truck spills, or they may occur over time as workers breathe in hazardous substances repeatedly. Hazardous chemicals in the workplace may include:

  • Toxic substances
  • Irritants
  • Corrosives
  • Asphyxiates
  • Carcinogens
  • Biological hazards

Proper risk control related to methane gas and other toxic materials in workplaces is covered in OSHA regulations and industry standards. If you suffered a chemical exposure injury on the job in Illinois, Anesi, Ozmon, Rodin, Novak & Kohen Ltd. can evaluate your case. The burden of proof in a workers’ compensation claim for a worker who suffers a chemical exposure injury over time is on the worker. We are prepared to fight for your right to full compensation through workers’ compensation. In addition, we can determine whether you have cause to file a personal injury lawsuit against a liable third party other than your employer.
