South Carolina Workers' Compensation Toxic Exposure Claims
Toxic chemical exposure at work can lead to very serious health problems over the long term, and can affect your ability to do your job. It is the responsibility of every employer to take all necessary steps to ensure the safety of their workers. If you have suffered an injury or health problem that resulted from work-related exposure to a toxic substance, you may be entitled to seek workers' compensation benefits.
Obtaining workers' compensation benefits for toxic exposure can be extremely difficult. Employers will go to great lengths to avoid responsibility for your health problems. At the law firm of Kathryn Williams, P.A., we have helped many employees who have developed illnesses due to work-related toxic exposure.
The Right Firm for Your Toxic Exposure Claim
Many conditions resulting from toxic exposure are not discovered until it is too late to prevent them. Asbestosis and mesothelioma are frequently linked with the inhalation of asbestos. Byssinosis, or brown lung disease, is a common condition suffered by textile mill workers who inhale cotton fibers. These types of conditions can take years to become apparent.
Workers can also develop conditions like asthma, malignant tumors and brain, nerve or organ damage from exposure to certain toxic substances. We have been involved in benzene exposure claims and claims for exposure to solvents, preservatives and other chemicals. Our lawyers fight aggressively to secure benefits for your medical care, lost wages and any other benefits available in your case.
