Brain Injuries From Toxic Chemical Exposure
Safety should be the number one concern for anyone encountering chemicals or a substance of which they are unsure. However, as careful as someone can be, accidents happen and people are injured. Negligence in administering, storing and disposing of toxic chemicals can injure anyone exposed to the material or vapors.
Although exposure to a chemical in a small dose does not always lead to serious long-term effects, the amount, duration, frequency and type of chemical can increase the risk of brain injury. Injuries can happen over a long period of time or quickly after exposure to a large amount of the toxic chemical.
Breyer Law Offices, P.C., witness many cases of toxic chemical exposure that result in brain injuries and damage to the nervous system, digestive system, reproductive system, circulatory system and respiratory system. These cases are due to negligent employers, property owners, manufacturers and workers responsible for the safety of other people. Alexis and Mark Breyer, skilled Phoenix brain injury attorneys, have won substantial settlements for damages due to toxic chemical exposure.
