Jacksonville Chemical Exposure Attorneys

Chemical Accidents and Exposure in Jacksonville

Modern life as we know it is largely dependent on a number of chemicals dumped into the environment, both at work and at home, with little government oversight since post World War II. Whether derived from petroleum (petrochemicals), fertilizers, cleaning products, even medicines, building supplies, carpet, paint, flame retardants and plasticizers to make baby toys and shower curtains pliable – our exposure to chemicals is constant and daily. While a few pioneers have been observing the link between insidious environmental toxins and animal and human health for decades, the public is now just beginning to understand that environmental hazards are an important component of public health.

Unfortunately in the meantime about 80,000 chemical have received approval to be released into our environments at home, the workplace and in public, with very little more than a wink and a nod.

Consider some of the worst offenders:

  • Asbestos
  • Fluoride
  • Solvents
  • Pesticides and Herbicides
  • Plastic components that make baby bottles and containers
  • Mold
  • Lead and toxic metals
  • Polluted water
  • Tobacco smoke

The effects of these chemicals on humans vary. Our clients suffer from breathing problems, cancer, skin rashes, leukemia, nerve damage, lung disease, and other terminal and disabling conditions.

Many lawsuits have been filed against asbestos manufacturers for causing mesothelioma in people exposed to fibers and dust, whether in a mine or in a building constructed with asbestos. Billions in lawsuits have been filed by people affected.

Painters, railroad workers, factory workers, mechanics, refinery and ship yard workers have suffered from a long-term exposure to benzene, an industrial chemical found in rubber products, solvents, marking pens, gasoline and paints. Exposure has been linked to lymphoma, leukemia, reproductive and respiratory effects. Benzene can sometimes be found in drinking water and emit from cars inside a garage, household surface coatings, wood smoke, consumer products and burning candles.

Let Our Jacksonville Chemical Exposure Attorneys Help You

The Jacksonville injury lawyers at Farah & Farah have had the honor of representing hundreds of clients who have been hurt by the exposure to these toxic chemicals in the workplace and elsewhere. We understand in order to hold a chemical manufacturer responsible we need the financial resources to be prepared to take the case all the way to a jury. We front those costs so you don’t have to including hiring the best experts in the field to connect the dots between exposure and illness.

Whether a product liability or wrongful death injury, our Jacksonville construction accident attorneys believe the at-fault party should be held accountable and not allowed to dispose of its industrial waste on the taxpaying public or on a worker at the expense of his health. The corporate entity needs to be held accountable for lost wages as well as pain and suffering. In some cases, if the behavior was reckless and they showed indifference, there may be punitive damages to apply.
