Chemical and pollution injuries can be caused in many different ways. Chemicals may be stored improperly, spilled into our water and soil, released into our air, and come into contact with us in ways that they were not designed. Many of us live in communities that contain chemical refineries. As a result, we are constantly at risk for exposure to hazardous chemicals through accidental releases. Many major refining companies have recently been linked to refinery accidents and the resulting injuries.
Often, it is the negligence of the company handling the chemicals that is to blame for such a personal injury. Toxic chemicals may also be present in a variety of products and consumers may be dangerously exposed to them without proper consumer warnings. Although certain people are more sensitive or allergic, they still should be made aware of the risks. There is even a situation known as “sick building syndrome” that exists in which certain systems in a building may emit hazardous chemicals or toxins, such as asbestos. In regards to pollution, many companies ignore or skirt emissions regulations and this reckless disregard can also lead to chemical or pollution related injuries.
Exposure to toxic chemicals may cause:
* Neurological disorders
* Corneal scarring
* Chemical burns
* Organ failure
* Respiratory illness
* Lead poisoning
