Toxic chemical exposure often occurs in workplace accident circumstances. People working in an office building may be exposed after a chemical spill that releases toxic gases, which then spread quickly through the building's ventilation system. Construction workers and warehouse workers are often susceptible to the potential for toxic chemical exposure accidents. A tanker car derailing in a train accident or a chemical spill on an interstate highway are examples of large-scale disasters that have sometimes injured many bystanders, whether workers or members of the public.
Whatever the circumstances of the accident that exposed you to toxic gases, you may now be dealing with a difficult recovery, incurring many medical expenses for:
- Emergency care
- Follow-up treatment
- Possible surgery
Toxic chemical exposure on the job may be a one-time occurrence or it may be the result of ongoing dangerous working conditions. Welders are susceptible to arc flash electrical burns and illnesses caused by exposure to dangerous gases. Perhaps exposure to toxic fumes has been part of your everyday work environment, and now you have developed an occupational disease as a result of working with hazardous materials.
