Effects of Chemical Exposure

Chemical exposure is a more common occurrence than you might expect. From home chemicals, such as household cleaners and insect repellent, to work-related chemicals, the ways in which an adult or child may be exposed to toxic substances are limitless. Unfortunately, chemical exposure is often caused by reckless or negligent parties who fail to adequately warn individuals of the potential toxic exposure. When contact with abrasive or dangerous chemicals occurs, the side effects can be severe.

The symptoms of chemical exposure will be dependent on the type of chemical or toxic substance with which the victim comes into contact. Due to this, exposure can go without treatment for long periods of time, causing worsening symptoms and increasing the risk of permanent injuries. The various ways in which individuals may become exposed to harmful substances—through ingestion, absorption, and inhalation—increase the threat of chemical exposure.

Symptoms of Chemical Exposure

There are several harmful side effects that chemical exposure may cause in an individual, including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Burns
  • Acute Illness
  • Cancer
  • Neurological Disorders
  • Loss of Sight

The effects of chemical exposure may require extensive medical treatment. When your chronic or permanent health condition is caused by the irresponsible actions of a negligent party, an experienced attorney may be able to help you recover financial relief to fund your ongoing medical treatments.
