Workers’ Compensation Lawyer Lafayette, LA
Exposure to chemicals can cause acute, obvious injuries, such as burns, to cancer and brain damage. These cases usually occur as a result of equipment failures or leaks, or by chemicals in the workplace, all of which create unsafe workplaces.
Our firm has handled chemical exposure cases involving many types of chemicals and has experience engaging the services of medical and toxicological experts to assist in proving the severe injuries caused by various chemical agents. The battleground in these cases typically end up being on the issue of causation, with the company taking the position that the injured employee cannot scientifically prove that a particular chemical caused a particular injury.
