Chemical Exposure Workers’ Compensation Attorneys
Work Injury Lawyers That Get Results in New Jersey
Some workers are exposed to toxic chemicals at the workplace. An accident can lead to a workplace injury that leaves workers in need of medical treatment. The workers’ compensation system is supposed to help but getting the benefits you deserve can be complicated. The experienced toxic chemical exposure attorneys at Shebell & Shebell, LLC fight for your rights.
Toxic chemicals can be found at many different types of workplaces. These include factories, construction sites, industrial plants, chemical processing labs, refineries and trucking companies. There are safety procedures that must be followed with toxic chemicals, but it only takes one accident to leave workers exposed.
How are employees exposed to chemicals? Workers can be injured in different ways, depending on the type of chemical and length of exposure. Some workers may breathe in toxic fumes, causing respiratory issues. Some may suffer burns or rashes if the chemical gets on their skin. Accidentally ingesting a chemical can cause internal injuries. Long-term exposure to chemicals at work can result in cancer.
Whether you were exposed to carbon monoxide, ammonia, chlorine, hydrochloric acid, sulfuric acid or another toxic chemical, it’s important to have experienced legal representation.
Toxic Exposure Lawyers Who Fight For The Benefits You Deserve
An injury or illness caused by workplace exposure to toxic chemicals can have a significant impact on your life. The medical expenses for treatment can add up very quickly and become overwhelming. You can suffer a loss of income while you are left unable to return to work. It can become hard to pay the bills.
If you were injured due to toxic chemical exposure, you deserve workers’ compensation benefits, but the claims process can be complicated. Employers and their insurance companies may deny your chemical exposure claim. As a result, you may not get the treatment you need for your injuries to help you get better.
That’s why you need an experienced toxic chemical exposure attorney to fight for you. You may hear that you don’t need a lawyer to file a claim. Employers and insurance companies are hoping you don’t get one. They have attorneys, though, because they know the workers’ compensation process can be difficult to navigate.
Employers and insurance companies may dispute the extent of your injuries or the need for certain treatment. They may even decide that you are ready to return to work even though you haven’t fully recovered. Under the law, insurance companies can choose the doctors that treat your injuries, but these doctors don’t have your best interests in mind.
