When you show up to work each day, your mind should be focusing on getting your job done, not worrying about the possibility of being subject to a chemical exposure injury. At the Philadelphia law firm of The Levin Firm, the chemical exposure injury attorneys take these cases as seriously as any workers comp case. A chemical exposure injury from work can be severe, and the lawyers at the law firm of The Levin Firm think of chemical exposure injury cases as some of the most important workers compensation cases in their practice of law.
Many workers are exposed to harmful chemicals on a daily basis, and most are not even aware of the chemical’s presence in their workplace. Asbestos, manganese, benzene, beryllium and mercury are just a few of many toxic substances that are often responsible for workplace chemical exposure. Workers who are exposed to certain chemicals over an extended period of time can suffer serious, even life-threatening injuries.
Exposure can leave obvious external physical symptoms, such as burns on the skin. Prolonged exposure can also lead to injuries such as asthma, neurological damage, birth defects and cancer. Sometimes, these injuries become so severe that employees can no longer handle doing their jobs.
Employees who can no longer do their jobs because of chemical exposure injuries worry how they are going to be able to support themselves and their families. Many people mistakenly believe that workers’ compensation is for employees who are injured as the result of an accident or specific incident in the workplace. If you, a family member or a friend suffered an injury due to chemical exposure in workplace, you are also entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. If you believe you are suffering from chemical exposure, you should consult with a doctor to determine the nature of your injury, and speak to an attorney as soon as possible to learn about your rights to receive benefits.
At The Levin Firm, we understand that representing workers’ compensation claimants suffering from chemical exposure requires particular types of skills and knowledge, as well as ability to understand your rights as an employee.
