If you’ve been left sick or injured after encountering a poisonous substance while on the job, a Spokane construction accident toxic exposure lawyer can help you get compensated.

Exposure to toxins in the work environment is a serious danger to you and others while on a construction site. Whether from a sudden accident or the result of a slow, prolonged exposure, the end result can be devastating. Your injuries may be severe, resulting in massive medical bills, financial losses, and personal trauma.

If you have suffered serious harm due to toxic exposure in the workplace, you could be entitled to compensation beyond workers compensation insurance depending on who is at fault for your accident.

Toxic exposure is serious, and we do not want you to face your injuries alone. A Spokane construction accident toxic exposure lawyer from Craig Swapp & Associates can help you understand your legal options and aggressively fight for the financial compensation you deserve.


Exposure to Toxic Substances at a Construction Site

The majority of toxic exposure accidents happen as a result of negligence. Many companies emphasize profits before safety, and as a result, fail to adhere to rules and regulations set forth by OSHA. There are many reasons exposure to toxic substances can happen on a construction site, including the following:

  • Failure to quarantine toxic chemicals
  • Failure to maintain and inspect machinery that may emit toxic substances
  • Chemical explosions or fires
  • Chemical spills
  • Failure to find toxic chemicals in demolished materials
  • Failure to provide protective gear or equipment


Toxic Exposure and the Potential Defendants

Toxic exposure cases are detailed and complex. Workers compensation insurance should be provided by your employer and pays you regardless of the cause and fault of the accident. After thoroughly investigating your accident, we may discover that you qualify to file a personal injury claim for additional damages if a third party is identified as the party at fault.

Potential defendants you could sue for monetary damages in a civil suit are as follows:                                                        

  • Manufacturers of chemicals and substances responsible for your injuries
  • Distributors of the chemical products
  • Makers of devices and machinery that exposed you to poisonous substances
  • Owners of the property where the exposure occurred
  • Makers of equipment that failed to prevent exposure
  • Storage warehouses and facilities

Having litigated many toxic substance exposure claims, we understand the importance of making sure the responsible party is held accountable for placing you and other workers at risk.
