Toxic Exposure And Occupational Diseases

You don't have to work in a chemical plant to be exposed to toxins. Employees from all industries are frequently exposed to hazardous substances. You may be a construction worker who suffered from mold exposure, or you may be a nurse who contracted a staph infection in the local hospital. You may even be a computer technician who breathed too many paint fumes during the renovation of your office building.

Many Chemicals Can Create Lifelong Damage

A wide array of chemicals and toxins can cause neurological injuries such as permanent brain damage or nerve damage. At Troy & Eaton, LLP, we understand the long-term effects of such injuries. For this reason, our most vital concern is to help you obtain the full amount of medical and financial compensation available.

If you sign a workers' compensation settlement agreement (a Section 32 waiver agreement) it should always take into account the lifelong ramifications of your injury. We strongly encourage you to consult an attorney before making such a decision.
