Occupational Exposure

New Jersey Occupational Exposure Attorneys

Hazardous chemicals and other dangerous substances represent a significant threat in many workplaces. Occupational exposure is the term used to describe injuries caused by any number of dangerous materials. It could refer to an office building contaminated with fungi and molds that can make employees sick. It can refer to injuries suffered by workers whose duties exposed them to radiation or materials such as asbestos, benzene, formaldehyde, lead or other industrial pollutants. It can also describe occupational exposure to blood-borne pathogens through needle sticks or cuts. These injuries may occur to police officers, hospital workers, firefighters, nurses or others. If you have suffered an injury or illness due to exposure to a harmful substance, we can help you. Contact Costello, Mains & Silverman, LLC, in Mount Laurel, NJ, by calling 866-944-3371 or email us to discuss your legal needs.

Workplace Safety And Toxic Chemicals

Workers employed in laboratories or other places where a chemical spill is a potential hazard may realize right away when a dangerous exposure has occurred. Not all cases are as clear. Poor ventilation, mold contamination and improper use or storage of harmful materials can cause a range of illnesses among employees in a particular building. It can be a challenge to track these illnesses to a specific source. Chemical exposure can have a dramatic impact on one person while leaving the person working one spot over unharmed. Not everyone exposed to asbestos gets mesothelioma, asbestosis or lung cancer. You should not ignore your health symptoms just because they are not shared by all your co-workers.
