What Types Of Injuries Occur From Toxic Fumes At Work?
A: There are many different industries that use a variety of chemicals, such as construction workers, industrial workers, cleaning workers, pest control workers and others. Some chemicals can cause damage to the skin and eyes, and other toxic fumes can cause lung damage, brain damage, cancer, loss of consciousness, loss of memory, and internal injuries to organs.
When a worker is able to survive a toxic fume accident, he or she may be left with a life-long disability that could affect their ability to work as well as their family. Sometimes toxic fumes can cause a worker to suffocate and die as a result.
If you suffered a toxic fumes injury in a Florida work accident, or if your family member died as a result of chemical exposure, you should talk with a skilled Fort Lauderdale workers’ compensation lawyer to find out your rights. You may be entitled to financial compensation for medical bills, lost wages, loss of services and more.
