SUFFERING FROM TOXIC EXPOSURE?
Seek Justice with Our Kansas City Workers’ Comp Lawyers
Toxic exposure can be one of the most disturbing personal injuries. We live and work in an environment with many possibilities for chemical contamination. The phrase lawyers use for claims based on chemical injuries is toxic tort. These cases can sometimes involve multiple plaintiffs looking to recover relief for illnesses and health issues resulting from the exposure.
At Adler & Manson, we vigorously represent workers who have been harmed by sudden exposure to toxic substances and those who have contracted occupational diseases through long-term exposure to chemicals. Our law firm seeks workers’ compensation benefits, as well as compensation from third-party sources whenever applicable.
Types of Toxic Exposure Claims
The poisonous effects of industrial minerals and chemicals have caused thousands to be disabled early in life, or not live to their life expectancy. Sometimes these toxic interactions are caused by substances under the sink at home, in the workshop. or even from a water supply. Harmful, life-changing illnesses can result from contact with asbestos, benzene, PCBs, lead and other toxic chemicals.
Toxic tort cases originating in the workplace can include:
- A remodeler who contracted mesothelioma after years of working around asbestos fibers in ceiling insulation
- Office workers who developed lung cancer from years of working by a polluting smokestack
- People who became ill from working at a chemical plant that allowed harmful chemical emissions to spew forth from their plant
