Common Mistakes After a Chemical Exposure Injury Case
I have experience in handling chemical exposure cases for over 35 years. Some of the mistakes that I’ve seen clients make through the years include not seeking medical treatment, and not seeking medical treatment with specialists to help document the cause of the injuries or the problems they’ve developed as the result of these chemical exposures. Another serious mistake that I’ve seen clients make through the years is not hiring a trial lawyer that has experience in handling these cases, trial lawyers that have experience in trying cases and proving the injuries to property and to person, and hiring expert witnesses to prove the cause of the release and the injuries these chemicals caused to the body and to property.
Recovering Damages After a Chemical Exposure Injury
There was a paper mill that released a dangerous toxic chemical into the air in Augusta, Georgia a month ago. Neighbors called me about what damages may be recoverable as a result of this release. If you’re reading this, you may have similar questions.
Damages from those exposed to the toxic chemical would include, but are not limited to, property damage, plant damage, crop damage, personal injuries, lung injuries, eye injuries, potential cancer-causing agents. Many of these injuries would need to be verified by medical professionals as to the causation. That’s why it’s important to hire an attorney who is experienced with these types of cases.
Filing a Workers’ Compensation Claim After a Chemical Exposure Injury
I was called recently by a man that suffered lung injuries and a bad burn from being exposed to toxic chemical exposure at work. He asked me, “What options do I have to get recovery for my damages?” If you’re reading this, you may have similar questions.
Number one, the client is entitled to lost wages and medical bills and permanent impairment ratings from his employer for his work injuries under Georgia workers’ comp. Number two, if there’s another company responsible for the chemical exposure – a maintenance company, a product manufacturer, or a sub-contractor – that was negligent as a result of this exposure, then a case for permanent injuries, pain and suffering, and unlimited damages can be brought in Superior Court in Georgia for that worker’s damages.
