Toxic chemicals are used for a variety of industrial, professional, and consumer purposes. Slater Slater Schulman’s toxic tort attorneys offer the opportunity to pursue compensation from the parties responsible. We have succeeded on behalf of many seriously injured individuals and families.
Slater Slater Schulman LLP represents clients throughout the country filing environmental and toxic tort lawsuits. Our attorneys represent people who have been injured by environmental contaminants, solvents used in the workplace and also from chemical injuries resulting from exposure to harmful consumer products.
Exposure can occur primarily in one or more of three ways: By swallowing the chemical, by breathing it into the lungs or through contact with the skin. It can occur when a person is directly working with chemicals such as hydrocarbon solvents, including benzene, TCE or PCBs. Exposure can also occur when dangerous chemicals are dumped into the waterways or aquifers that supply your water, or by exposure to fumes or toxic dusts in the air you breathe. Usually, but not always, when a person is exposed to the point that a disease occurs, the exposure occurs over a long period of time. However, this is not always the case. Diseases that result from chronic exposures include multiple types of cancer such as leukemia as well as neurological diseases or damage to the brain and nervous system.
If you are suffering from a serious disease and you believe that it may have been caused by exposure to toxic chemicals at work or in your environment, you may have a right to financial compensation from the companies and people who caused your exposure. If you feel you may have a case, you should contact our chemical injury and toxic tort attorneys as soon as possible to learn about your legal options.
