Chemical Exposure & Toxic Torts

Chemical Exposure & Toxic Torts Claims in San Antonio

People come into contact with chemicals every day. At work, home, school, or even at your children's playground, exposure to chemicals can be experienced anywhere. It is important to note that there are safe chemicals - and there are very dangerous ones as well.

In order to experience illness, injury, or disease from chemical exposure, it must enter the body first. Far from common misconception, however, exposure to chemicals does not have to be direct or through physical contact. In many cases involving toxic exposure, the victim will have been exposed to toxic materials through ingestion, inhalation, or through the skin (transdermal exposure).

Toxic torts claims can be filed if you have suffered serious injury, illness, or disease due to exposure to a source of hazardous waste or toxic chemicals. Whether your injuries are an immediate result of the exposure or your symptoms have slowly emerged due to gradual exposure, our compassionate San Antonio personal injury attorneys are here to listen to your story and make your voice heard. To us, taking legal action represents much more than obtaining compensation. It is about demanding justice when your rights have been violated. Call our firm today to share your story.

Demand Safer Conditions & Better Industrial Hygiene in Your Workplace

According to standards specifically put into place by the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), there are acceptable levels of airborne chemical concentrations in the workplace. According to all recognized Federal Standards, there are Permissible Exposure Limits (PEL) that are enforceable by law and all employers are required to obey. Failure to adhere to the PEL standards could lead to an unsafe working environment and could expose workers to toxic levels of chemicals.

Common chemical exposure and toxic torts claims to arise in the industrial setting include:

  • Asbestos exposure (leading to asbestos-related mesothelioma)
  • Ethyl benzene
  • Arsenic, lead, and iron
  • Manganese poisoning
  • Toxic fungi, bacteria, and / or other viruses
  • Exposure to toxic waste due to a chemical spill
  • Exposure to any number of neurotoxins or biologic agents

As a surviving family member, you can take action on behalf of your loved one's life. As considerate legal professionals, we can guide you through this process as you grapple with a deeply emotional time - all while honoring your family's need for discretion, privacy, and respect at this time.

Were you exposed to chemicals in a non-industrial setting? Let us hear your story.

Toxic chemicals do not simply exist inside of industrial environments. From property contamination due to oil spills or a collision with a hazardous-material truck or 18-wheeler, victims can be exposed to toxic materials anywhere from their home to the highway. If you have been exposed to any type of toxic waste, you must speak with our firm.

Other toxic exposure claims may include:

  • Property contamination due to irresponsible fracking practices, oil drilling, pipeline spills, or other chemical spills
  • Exposure to asbestos in your home
  • Exposure to carbon monoxide in the home
  • Exposure to kerosene, paint thinners, or other toxic fumes
  • Toxic materials found in children's toys

Because we treat every client with personalized and attentive counsel, we truly take the time to thoroughly investigate your claim. We can determine the party (or parties) at-fault, including product manufacturers or irresponsible corporations. Once we are able to locate the source of your accident, we will fiercely advocate to help hold all liable parties accountable for their actions.
