Exposed to Dangerous Chemicals?

San Jose Chemical Exposure Attorneys

Call (800) 900-0863 if You Have Been Exposed to Dangerous Chemicals

Construction workers can be exposed to thousands of toxic substances during the course of their employment. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) estimates that certain job environments may expose workers to as many as a hundred thousand potentially unsafe substances.

These potentially unsafe substances include:

  • Dusts
  • Molds
  • Pesticides
  • Phytoestrogens
  • Phthalates
  • Dioxins
  • Hydrocarbons
  • Heavy metals
  • Insecticides
  • Lacquers
  • Paints

There are a variety of laws and regulations in place at both the state and federal levels to protect construction workers from toxic exposure. Employers who fail to adhere to these laws can be liable for injuries caused in a construction accident should an employee choose to file a personal injury lawsuit.

What Kinds of Injuries Can Result from Chemical Exposure?

Medical issues that can arise due to chemical exposure include:

  • Dizziness
  • Amnesia
  • Headaches
  • Lack of breath
  • Blackouts
  • Burns
  • Lung damage
  • Disfigurement

Exposure to toxic chemicals over long periods of time can cause permanent brain damage, traumatic brain injury, disabilities, birth injuries, a variety of different cancers, harm to your internal organs, muscle damage, and more.
