Each day we are exposed to a number of chemicals in our home and workplace. They are used in industries from pharmaceutical and farming to manufacturing and construction. They are in our cleaning solvents, medicine, and bug sprays. Many of these chemicals can be toxic. You can be exposed to the dangers they present by pure accident or as the result of negligent or deliberate actions without even knowing. The attorneys at Jacoby and Myers help victims of toxic chemical exposure throughout the New York City area seek justice and deserved compensation.
Chemical Exposure in the Workplace
Many workers are unwittingly exposed to a wide range of chemicals on a regular basis. They may not be provided with adequate safety precautions or may be subjected to seemingly benign chemicals that inhaled over a period of time can cause a myriad of health problems: headaches, brain injuries, lung disease, blood disorders, and cancer.
Chemical Exposure in the Home
Although many household products are manufactured with safer chemicals and typically provide adequate safety warnings, there is still a potential for toxic exposure, such as through improper packaging or labeling. You can also be exposed to lead paint or toxic mold because of failure to maintain property or substandard construction.
