Toxic Exposure And Other Dangerous Products
Our law firm holds negligent manufacturers accountable.
Companies that produce potentially dangerous or toxic products have a duty to protect the public. They need to ensure that their products are transported, used and disposed of safely. Unfortunately, many manufacturers put profit ahead of safety, and when that happens, people get hurt. Exposure to toxic substances can lead to serious illness or injury.
We hold those companies accountable. If you've been injured after being exposed to a toxic substance, call Dean Waite & Associates today. We are currently reviewing cases involving the following products and illnesses:
Cases involving toxic exposure generally fall under the legal category of product liability. Getting justice if you've been hurt by a faulty product can be exceptionally difficult. Your lawyer needs to sift through huge amounts of evidence, including medical records. The manufacturers have teams of attorneys and investigators on their side, and their priority is to reduce their own liability - not to fairly compensate people who have been injured.
Benzene is a dangerous chemical commonly found in oil, gasoline and vehicle emissions, as well as cigarette smoke. Many people have been exposed to benzene in the workplace, at home, in drinking water or through the outdoor air. Long-term exposure to benzene has been linked to a number of health issues, including acute myeloid leukemia (AML), a type of cancer.
Depending on the circumstances of your exposure, you may have a case against a manufacturer that used benzene for failing to properly store the chemical or failing to warn customers of the danger. You may also have a claim against a manufacturer of defective safety equipment that allowed you to be exposed. That's why it's so important to get an experienced attorney on your side.
Many people choose so-called "e-cigarettes" as an ostensibly healthier alternative to traditional cigarettes. Unfortunately, in some cases, those healthier options are actually more dangerous. We are currently investigating cases in which people sustained burns due to e-cigarette explosions.
If you were burned due to a defective e-cigarette device or battery, contact us today. Money collected in a settlement or verdict could help you pay for reconstructive surgery and skin grafts to repair the damage done by the explosion. We'll help you hold the manufacturer accountable and get the compensation you need.
In recent years, the popular weed-killer Roundup has been identified as a likely human carcinogen by the World Health Organization (WHO). Specifically, commercial-grade Roundup has been linked to non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) along with other cancers such as multiple myeloma and leukemia. However, agricultural giant Monsanto, which manufactures Roundup, has consistently denied this link.
Lawsuits have been filed against Monsanto by agricultural workers who have been diagnosed with NHL after using commercial-grade Roundup. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with NHL or another type of cancer after being exposed to Roundup, you may be eligible for compensation. Give us a call today.
