“There’s a lot of nasty junk at the plant where I worked.”
At steel mills, factories, power plants and construction sites, workers may be exposed to any number of harmful chemicals. The source might be spills, industrial-strength cleaning products, byproducts of manufacturing and toxic substances in work-related products.
When clients come to us, they are often at a loss to pinpoint any one substance that might have caused their illness. Was it a one-time exposure to a powerful chemical, or long-term breathing of dangerous fumes? Was it the current job, or delayed effects from a previous workplace?
That’s where we come in. Prim Law Firm, PLLC has assembled a large database of harmful industrial products and their known health effects. Combined with information about the client’s work history and illness patterns in co-workers, we have had notable success in linking our client’s disease to a specific chemical. With the help of medical experts and industrial safety experts, we pursue toxic tort damages, including:
- Third-party lawsuits against manufacturers for failure to warn of the dangers of their product.
- Full disability benefits through workers’ compensation claims involving occupational diseases.
