You may be wondering, “How can I prove chemical exposure caused the injuries?” At Grimes & Fertitta, we leverage the knowledge of our network of medical professionals and subject matter experts, in addition to the evidence collected from the scene, to prove how the injuries happened.
Can I sue for chemical exposure?
It depends on what happened. There are a few ways your case can be handled, and the compassionate chemical exposure lawyers from Grimes & Fertitta will guide you in the right direction.
One common path to receiving compensation after a work-related injury through workers’ compensation. This type of compensation can cover medical bills and lost wages for any injury on the job but does not include compensation for pain and suffering. Accepting workers’ compensation often waives your right to sue your employer for additional damages later on.
Another way to receive compensation is through a personal injury lawsuit or toxic tort claim. To have grounds for a lawsuit, you must prove you were exposed to a particular chemical and that exposure caused injuries. Furthermore, you must prove that another party was responsible for your exposure and there was a breach in the duty of care.
What approach will Grimes & Fertitta’s chemical injury lawyers take?
We invest the time to connect with every client on a personal level and fully understand their situation. Our goal is to find the best solution for you and your family by examining the facts of the case and relying on decades of experience as chemical exposure lawyers.
If there’s any chance your family might have a case above workers’ compensation, then our team will get to work uncovering all liable parties and calculate all current and potential medical expenses for a toxic tort case.
Most toxic tort injuries arise from occupational exposure, unintended pharmaceutical drug side effects, exposure in the home, or unsafe consumer products. We will investigate the cause and try to identify other individuals affected to build a class-action lawsuit which may produce greater chemical exposure settlements for everyone involved.
