What is toxic contamination?

Toxic contamination refers to many toxic exposures through the environment. Poisonous chemicals can cause serious health conditions and other injuries, whether through:

  • Drinking water
  • Inhalation
  • Skin absorption
  • Asbestos exposure
  • Air contamination in residential buildings
  • Polyfluoroalkyl exposure
  • Soil contamination
  • City water contamination

Companies, government entities, and others can be held responsible for their role in exposing the public to toxins. Federal and state laws often protect injury victims facing toxic exposure, and agencies like the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are empowered to set standards for chemical use, disposal, and more. 

You can fight for fair compensation after toxic contamination

Your lawyer can help you understand how these apply to your case. They can also help you identify who may be liable for your exposure to toxins. Primarily, your legal representative will help you seek justice and fight for compensation that covers your medical expenses related to toxic exposure injuries.
