What do I need to know about hiring a chemical exposure injury lawyer?

I had a client call me about a chemical exposure from a paper plant in Augusta. That client asked me, “How do you choose an attorney to represent me in the case?” If you’re reading this, you may have similar questions. I’ll share with you what I shared with my client.

Number one, look at the lawyer’s experience. Does the lawyer have experience with similar cases? Is personal injury the core of that lawyer’s practice? Is the lawyer a trial lawyer who will take the case to trial if the insurance company’s not reasonable? Does the lawyer run focus groups and mock juries if the case goes to trial? Does the lawyer have resources to hire expert witnesses that will help prove the cause of exposure and the medical damage to the client?

Second, look at the lawyer’s success. Get online and do research to see what kind of client and customer reviews the lawyer has. Does he have good Google ratings? Good Avvo or Facebook reviews by former clients? Look at the lawyer to lawyer ratings. Lawyers rate other lawyers. Look at what lawyers are saying about that lawyer. There’s such services such as Super Lawyer, Martindale-Hubbell, Avvo, and 100 Top High Stake Litigators that rank lawyers. If you have any questions about chemical toxic exposure, give us a call. We’d be happy to help you in Georgia.

When chemical burns happen in the workplace, it is typically due to a lack of safety precautions. When working with something as dangerous as chemicals there needs to be a certain level of training for all employees to know how to safely handle these chemicals. They also need to be supplied with the equipment they need to keep themselves safe, such as goggles and gloves and coats. If there are no regulations for the safety protocols in the workplace, then injuries can happen quickly.

Depends on what type of chemicals you’re working with. For example, if someone cleaning up a facility gets in contact with a bleach solution, that won’t cause damage as severe as someone who is working in a plant with highly concentrated chemicals used for testing that can erode skin. If you suffered a workplace chemical burn, we want to hear from you right away.
