Recovering Compensation For Injuries From Chemical Exposure On The Job
- Lead dust
- Fibers of asbestos
Your employer has a duty to inform you about harmful chemicals on the job and to limit your exposure to toxic chemicals. However, your employer’s failure to do this can put your life and health at risk.
If your employer has failed to keep you safe, talk with our lawyer about your options.
Fighting To Help Workers Get Compensation Benefits
At the Law Office Of Joshua Borken, we send a clear message to employers: Maintaining an unsafe workplace is not an option. We fight for workers, getting them the workers’ compensation benefits to which they are entitled. We know that no amount of money can undo long-term damage from toxic fumes or other chemical exposure, but workers’ compensation benefits can pay for medical bills, compensate you for missed work and provide for ongoing therapy to help you move forward with your life. Deadlines for recovery in chemical exposure cases differ from typical workers’ compensation claims related to accidents on the job. You may be able to collect compensation even if your symptoms do not occur until long after your exposure. Do not assume that too much time has passed or that it is too late to consult with a St. Paul chemical exposure attorney.
Benzene is known carcinogen that causes cancers called acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) and myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). Although benzene exists in the natural environment, many workers are exposed to it at high levels in industrial processes, such as plastics manufacturing, that require benzene. Many more workers are exposed in jobs involving man-made products like solvents that contain benzene.
