The term “chemical exposure” is used to refer to contact with a variety of toxic or hazardous man-made substances. Many paints, cleaning products, and on-the-job products contain dangerous chemicals that can damage the body when inhaled or touched. Unfortunately, many employers are either ignorant or cut corners when it comes to safety and education, properly storing dangerous chemicals, providing adequate training, and/or fail to provide the proper protective equipment. The results are often workers suffering short-term injuries such as respiratory symptoms, forgetfulness, or disorientation, or even long-term consequences like illness, internal damage, cancer, birth defects, neurological injury; even death.
Chemical exposures can be tough to prove given the often unseen nature of many chemicals and many employers will fight toxic exposure claims vigorously through their insurance companies, trying to make sure that injured workers don’t receive the treatments and funds they’re entitled to under Florida Workers’ Compensation Laws. In such cases, The Workers Comp law form of Kevin Moore recommends that workers suffering from chemical exposure get an experienced Workers’ Compensation lawyer to fight on their behalf. In addition, Kevin’s WC law firm fully understands the mechanisms and dangers of chemical exposure; Kevin will help construct a legal strategy that gets you the compensation and medical help that you deserve.
