Common Causes of Toxic Exposure
While exposure to toxic chemicals can occur anywhere, there are a few instances in which these cases are more common.A person may be injured by toxic exposure through:
- Contaminated water or soil, usually resulting from sewage or chemical dumping
- Contaminated air through the release of dangerous gasses or toxins
- Exposure to toxins in the workplace
- Mold exposure
- Asbestos exposure
- Exposure through unsafe cleaning chemicals or personal care products
- Lead paint exposure

Seek Compensation for Your Damages
There are many different ways in which toxic exposure may cause damage, the most prominent being medical. When a person comes in contact with hazardous chemicals or fumes, the impact may be immediate, or it may be slow to develop. For example, two people may be exposed to equally dangerous chemicals, but while the first immediately feels a burning sensation on his skin, the second may feel nothing, but will develop cancer in a year due to exposure.
Injuries and illnesses caused by toxic exposure may include:
- Eye damage or blindness
- Lung damage
- Damage to the reproductive system
- Brain damage
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Hodgkin’s Disease
- Lung diseases
- Birth defects
Before taking legal action, you must first determine who is at fault for the injuries you sustained. Depending on the circumstances of your exposure, the accountable party could be the owner or manufacturer of the chemicals, the owner of the premises where you were injured, or the company you work for. Because each case is different, it is best to present this aspect of your case to your personal injury attorney to obtain a more accurate answer. Regardless of the severity of your injuries, any negligent or careless party should be held responsible for causing damage through toxic exposure.
