Common Causes of Injuries Analyzed by Chemical Injury Lawyers in Houston

Chemical exposure often occurs in environments related to construction, industrial factories, and oil fields, where products containing highly toxic elements like asbestos, benzene, or hydrogen sulfide are commonly used. Here are some of the most dangerous products associated with toxic substances:

  • Glues and adhesive products
  • Petroleum derivatives
  • Various types of chemical poisons
  • Irritant substances
  • Different types of gasses
  • Pesticides
  • Fuels
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Radiation
  • Solvents
  • Toxic waste in landfills

Injuries associated with chemical exposure are typically gradual and sometimes manifest several months or years later. However, once they appear, they tend to be severe and irreversible.

However, these injuries aren't limited to construction or industrial settings. Sometimes, people can be exposed to toxic products during everyday activities such as grocery shopping. For example, when oil spills into the sea, contaminated fish may end up being sold, and the same can happen with certain vegetables if a farming company sprays its fields with toxic pesticides in pursuit of higher profits.

In these cases, injuries (commonly poisoning) occur almost immediately and usually affect everyone who consumes the same toxic product.

In all these situations, victims are protected by the law. They can demand compensation from the responsible party to aid their recovery without financial worries.

Laws Under Which Chemical Exposure Attorneys Protect Victims

Every company is legally obligated to ensure the safety of its employees and the products it sells.

During chemical exposure, construction companies, chemical industries, and oil companies must alert workers about hazardous products and provide them with the appropriate tools and equipment, such as gas masks.

But their obligations continue. The law also requires them to offer continuous training courses for operating new machinery and knowing the safety protocols to follow in emergencies like explosions, fires, or leaks.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) warns that many injuries associated with chemical substances occur due to prolonged exposure to hydrogen sulfide in confined and narrow spaces, such as tunnels, sewers, or wells.

Employers requiring their workers to work in such environments must ventilate them and allow outdoor breaks at regular intervals.

In the event of explosions, fires, or spills that contaminate the air, soil, or water, responsible companies must immediately inform local government authorities to warn the population and, if necessary, evacuate affected areas.

Types of Common Injuries Addressed by Houston Toxic Tort Attorneys

Exposure to chemical substances can lead to severe illnesses such as cancer, lung injuries, brain injuries, and nervous system disorders, especially with prolonged exposure. However, symptoms may likely appear before these severe conditions develop.

Here are the main symptoms to watch for:

  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Headaches
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Skin rashes and irritations
  • Eye pain and vision loss
  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety

Suppose you experience any of these symptoms, especially in environments where chemical exposure is possible. In that case, it's crucial to seek medical attention promptly. Early detection and treatment can significantly improve outcomes and prevent further complications.

How Do Chemical Exposure Lawyers in Houston Work?

Chemical exposure lawyers in Houston from The Law Offices of Hilda Sibrian™ work to help individuals who have suffered injuries or illnesses due to exposure to toxic chemicals. Here's how we typically work:

  • Initial Consultation. The process usually begins with an initial consultation where the lawyer gathers information about the case. This may include details about the exposure, the resulting injuries or illnesses, and any potential liable parties.
  • Investigation. The lawyer will thoroughly investigate once they agree to take on the case. This may involve gathering evidence such as medical records, employment history, witness statements, and any documentation related to the exposure.
  • Legal Analysis. The lawyer will analyze the gathered evidence to determine the strength of the case. They'll assess liability, causation, and damages to determine the best legal strategy.
  • Filing a Lawsuit. If warranted, the lawyer will file a lawsuit on behalf of the client against the responsible parties. This initiates the legal process, and the case will proceed through the court system.
  • Negotiation. In many cases, the lawyer will attempt to negotiate a settlement with the defendant or their insurance company. This may involve mediation or other forms of alternative dispute resolution.
  • Litigation. The case will proceed to trial if a fair settlement cannot be reached. The lawyer will represent their client in court, presenting evidence and arguments to support their case.

Throughout the process, chemical exposure lawyers work diligently to advocate for their client's rights and seek the compensation they deserve for the harm they've suffered due to chemical exposure.

It is also essential for you to know:

  • If you're looking to hire a chemical exposure lawyer in Houston, you don't have to pay anything upfront! At The Law Offices of Hilda Sibrian™, our team works under contingency fees. This means that the legal team doesn't charge you anything to handle your case and only receives a smaller percentage if the compensation or lawsuit is successful.
  • Expert lawyers primarily use two methods to calculate compensation related to pain and suffering. One is known as the multiplier method, which involves multiplying economic damages (like medical expenses) by a figure between 1.5 and 5 (depending on the severity of the injuries). The other method involves a per diem scheme, where daily economic compensation is determined for the victim during their physical recovery.

Steps Houston Industrial Injury Lawyers Recommend That Victims Follow

Suppose you're involved in an industrial accident. In that case, the first step is to seek medical attention and notify your direct supervisor. Then, if your injuries allow, take photographs of the accident site. For instance, if you slipped due to a slippery floor or a weak or poorly placed railing, capture images of the floor and railing. If your injuries prevent this, don't worry: remain still and request an ambulance.

If you or a family member suspects exposure to chemical substances, follow these five steps:

  1. Seek medical consultation.
  2. Contact a lawyer from The Law Offices of Hilda Sibrian™.
  3. Refrain from signing any documents provided by your company.
  4. Avoid speaking with any representatives from insurance companies.
  5. If possible, take photographs of the accident circumstances (if it involved an explosion, fire, or leak), defective tools you were made to use (for example, if an oxygen mask failed), or unsanitary facilities (like poorly ventilated tunnels, wells, or sewers).

Suppose you are diagnosed with a severe injury, such as cancer, and you were exposed to chemical substances for several months or years. In that case, it's highly likely that could be the cause. In that case, immediately contact The Law Offices of Hilda Sibrian™.

What Compensations Can Toxic Exposure Claims Attorneys Obtain for Their Clients?

Proving that an injury from chemical exposure is highly complex, especially when it involves prolonged exposure to small amounts of toxic substances over several years.

However, an experienced legal team from The Law Offices of Hilda Sibrian™ has extensive experience winning these cases. We have a team of experts from various fields, such as researchers and specialists in toxic materials, respiratory diseases, and construction. They gather all necessary evidence, such as witnesses, medical reports, or official documents, to present a strong case in court demonstrating that the injuries were caused by chemical exposure due to someone else's negligence, usually a company.

Among the compensations we secure for our clients when winning a chemical exposure case are:

Reimbursement of all medical expenses incurred (doctor fees, medications, and hospitals) and coverage for all future medical costs associated with the injuries and rehabilitation.

Compensation for all lost wages due to the injuries suffered.

If the injuries prevent the individual from returning to work, compensation may involve receiving a lifetime pension.

Compensation for all non-economic damages associated with the injuries (such as stress, anguish, pain, despair, and suffering).

Suppose a person has died due to chemical exposure. In that case, compensation may include indemnities for the dependents of the deceased who relied on them financially.
