Toxic chemicals can be found in many types of workplaces, including:
- Construction sites
- Chemical processing labs
- Trucking companies
- Industrial plants
But toxic exposure can occur at any workplace that has toxic chemicals or substances on the premises. All it takes is one accident or act of negligence to affect the health of workers. This exposure can occur one time, or over a longer period of time if safety procedures are regularly ignored.
The health effects of toxic exposure depend on many factors and can vary widely. Exposure to toxic fumes can lead to respiratory issues. Skin contact can result in burns or rashes. Accidentally ingesting a toxic chemical or substance can result in internal injuries or neurological damage. Long-term exposure can result in cancer or other serious illnesses.
Workers who suffer toxic exposure on the job in Mississippi have the right to workers’ compensation benefits. But the claims process can be complicated and employers may challenge claims. Insurance companies may question the extent of the injury or illness and deny certain treatment.
That’s why it’s important to have an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer on your side. You need one who knows how the system works and will fight to get you benefits you deserve.
