Representing Victims of Acute or Single Incident Exposure
Toxic exposure is a nuanced and complex area of personal injury law that nevertheless has lasting effects on a victim’s health and well-being. Exposure occurs in any place where chemicals or other hazardous materials are present, including in a negligent workplace, a place where poisonous materials were mishandled or dumped by a business, or unsafe chemicals used in food at a restaurant or supermarket, just to name a few.
Dangerous chemicals, materials, and other hazardous materials include, but are not limited to:

- Silica dust
Even a single exposure to these and other substances can cause acute poisoning that can lead to long-lasting illness such as lung disease, leukemia, mesothelioma, liver cancer, or even wrongful death.
