Have you or a loved one been exposed to dangerous substances such as benzene, radiation, asbestos, lead, silica, contaminated groundwater, or other toxic substances at home, work, or in other places? The Buckley Law Group will provide you with the legal know-how and experience to successfully prove your toxic exposure injury in order to receive compensation to the maximum of your legal rights. Many Americans are exposed to toxic chemicals such as asbestos and benzene without even realizing it. This can occur in our homes or workplace when the chemicals are accidentally discharged into the air or water. When a responsible party negligently causes dangerous substances to be emitted into the environment and coming in contact with others, that individual or company is responsible for any damages that have been caused.
Benzene is a colorless, sweet smelling liquid that is one of the most commonly used chemicals in the United States. It is used in the making of pesticides, plastics, lubricants, and rubbers. Benzene becomes the most dangerous when exposed to the chemical over long periods of time or in large quantities. If you have come into contact with benzene through ways such as skin absorption, drinking contaminated water, or inhalation, contact the Buckley Law Group.
Asbestos is a fibrous material that incorporated into thousands of construction, commercial, and household products for much of the twentieth century. Although naked to the human eye, asbestos releases small fiber particles that when inhaled, causes a cancer in the lining of the lungs called mesothelioma. It is estimated that over half of the workers who were exposed to Asbestos occupationally between 1940 and 1970 may be currently living with an Asbestos-related cancer. A few of the occupations commonly associated with Asbestos exposure include:
- Asbestos mining
- HVAC workers
- Cement and construction workers
- Chemical plant, steel mill and factory workers
Similarly, many household products have been found to contain Asbestos, like:
- Vinyl products
- Fire proofing and prevention materials
- Ductwork connectors
- Floor backing and drywall taping compounds
Treatments for mesothelioma and other Asbestos-related illnesses can be extremely expensive. Often times, these expensive treatments may not be covered by your health insurance plan. You and your family deserve reparations for income loss as well as pain and suffering. If you suffer from an Asbesto-related illness, you may be eligible to file a Personal Injury claim against the parties responsible for your exposure. Similarly, if you have lost a loved one as the result of Asbestos exposure and illness, you may be entitled to reparations through a Wrongful Death suit. A mesothelioma lawsuit can help you receive the financial assistance you need. Several things can help an experienced attorney build a strong, individualized case on your behalf. Keeping a detailed record of medical and financial obligations will add to the strength of your case. You may also be asked to answer questions about possible exposure scenarios. Occasionally, it may take several years of exposure to toxic agents for an individual to experience signs or symptoms. Without the assistance of a toxic exposure attorney, it may be difficult to prove that the symptoms or illness were caused by the negligence of a person or a company.
