New York City Toxic Exposure Attorneys

The Most Common Toxic Exposure Cases

Because the construction industry often deals with matters of demolitions and working in older homes, workers are exposed to a number of hazardous, toxic materials. While some of these materials and chemicals are more toxic than others, exposure can cause serious conditions to whoever is affected. At The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C., we have handled numerous toxic exposure cases and we know what the most common causes are. We also know how poor the air quality can be in New York City.

Common toxic exposure cases involve the following:

  • Asbestos such as insulation, roof shingles, and textiles
  • Lead and lead-based paints on tools
  • Formaldehyde such as in plywood
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Asphalt in paving, concrete work, and roofing

As the construction industry booms, our New York City toxic exposure lawyers know that the risk for this situation can be high. There are a number of people who are affected by toxic exposure each year and sometimes, the symptoms don’t show up till much later. It is important to take action quickly to make a claim if you have developed a condition from any kind of toxic exposure.

Schedule your free case evaluation by calling (212) 577-9325.

What Kind of Conditions Stem from Toxic Exposure?

Toxic exposure can lead to numerous conditions, some that appear right away, others that develop over time. If you notice any of the symptoms, you should seek medical attention to determine what the issue is.

Toxic exposure can lead conditions including, but not limited to:

  • Mesothelioma
  • Neurological damage
  • Respiratory problems
  • Kidney damage
  • Skin cancer

Construction workers should be provided with the proper safety equipment to protect them from serious toxic exposure. Furthermore, owners of buildings should disclose the presence of asbestos, lead, or other toxic chemicals. If a worker develops a condition after being exposed to a toxic chemical, they have the right to take legal action and hold the negligent party accountable for their lack of safety.
