Houston Toxic Chemical Injury Lawsuit Attorney
Claims Following Dangerous Substance Exposure
People in this country, including children, are exposed to dangerous and toxic chemicals on a daily basis. These substances can cause respiratory disease, cognitive disorders, neurological disorders, developmental impairment, numerous cancers, lung disease, cardiovascular illness, birth defects, and more. The exposure can occur at home, in the workplace, or while driving or walking around during an average day. If you or your child were diagnosed with an illness (including autism, dementia, Parkinson’s disease, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, lung cancer, testicular cancer, or another illness), you may be entitled to benefits and financial compensation.
Chemical Exposure in the Home
Dangerous, hazardous, and toxic chemicals are all around our home, whether we know it or not. If you have houseplants, or are a gardener, you may have been exposed to a carcinogen named glyphosate, which is found in the weedkiller Roundup. It is a very strong carcinogen that is linked to different cancers and birth defects.
The common herbicide paraquat is also used in homes and gardens every day. Paraquat exposure can be a cause of early onset Parkinson’s disease, a commonly misdiagnosed neurological disorder that affects the ability to control movement, speech, and other motor skills.
Workplace Chemical Exposure
The two chemicals already mentioned, paraquat and Roundup, can also be found in the workplace, especially on farms, golf courses, university campuses, hospital campuses, and other settings where landscapers, gardeners, farmers, and groundskeepers are employed.
Other common chemicals that can cause illness, injury, or death include asbestos, benzene, bleach, caustic agents, carcinogens, fire/smoke, firefighting foam, lead, mercury and other metals, NDMA, diesel fuel and other gasolines, radiation, and teratogens. No matter what type of chemical you were exposed to, you have rights, and they need to be protected. Our attorney will do just that.
