Toxic exposure is dangerous not only because of the way it can affect a person’s body, but also because it can be difficult to spot, leading to long-term exposure.
Toxic exposure can occur when a person is exposed to gas or another substance, such as in the workplace. For example, if an office is right next to a restaurant kitchen that has a gas line leak, the gas may be able to move into the office space through the ventilation system, exposing the office workers.
Exposure to gas can lead to many physical injuries, including headaches, vision issues, memory and concentration issues, dizziness, fatigue, nausea and pulmonary issues. Although people can recover after the exposure is eliminated, some people suffer long-term effects, or even permanent symptoms.
If you or someone you know has been exposed to gas or another toxic substance and are suffering from symptoms, you may have a claim against the business or person responsible for the leak, for your damages including medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
