Toxic substances are all around us. Sustained exposure to toxic substances encountered at work and home can result in sickness or death. This said, the harmful effects of certain toxins can manifest rapidly or even immediately. You can become exposed to toxins through inhalation, ingestion, or even if the toxic substance comes in contact with your skin. Lead dust and asbestos fibers enter our system through breathing. Pesticides can be ingested orally. Strong solvents can be absorbed transdermally. Health problems arising from toxic chemicals include lung conditions, skin disease, organ damage, stunted growth in children, and brain damage.

If you believe that your health condition has arisen from toxic exposure, then the Law Offices of Alex R. Hernandez Jr. can help you. Cases involving exposure to toxins can be complicated because the deleterious effects of toxins take time to become apparent. Toxins can accumulate in the body for years before symptoms appear. We understand this and other crucial points, such as considering the effects of a toxin along with the effects of other exposures. A thorough understanding of the case is essential for attaching accountability to the guilty party.
