Toxic exposures often involve low-level, long-term exposure that is not identified by the patient or healthcare practitioner. In such cases, the victim of the exposure is happily living his or her life not recognizing that slow poisoning and damage is occurring. Such damage often results in or contributes greatly to a number of chronic and debilitating diseases.
Some of the toxic substances that have been shown to cause significant injury to people are lead-based paint (brain damage, especially in children) asbestos (lung cancer, restrictive lung disease) dry cleaning and other solvents (brain damage, major organ damage) pesticides such as dioxin and DDT (birth injuries) electro-magnetic fields from utility wires or major appliances (suspected cancer) toxic landfill waste (leukemia, other syndromes) various drugs and pharmaceuticals such as DES and tainted L-tryptophan, common industrial chemicals such as benzene and PCBs, heavy metals and other chemicals such as mercury and arsenic.
If you believe you have been exposed to toxic fumes you should seek medical attention immediately.
If you have been injured due to someone else’s negligence, you have the right to seek fair settlement compensation for the losses you have experienced.
