Many times, you might find yourself in a situation where you are exposed to different chemicals, mold, lead paint, or even asbestos. Knowing what to do in the event of exposure to toxic substances is key to starting the healing process correctly. A wide range of harm may stem from toxic exposure, including cancer, infections, burns, or even birth defects. The claims resulting from this exposure are often complex, involving building and construction issues, technical research, and consultations with experts, scientists, and doctors. The attorneys at Negem & Worthington have experience in working cases of this nature and are here to help answer any questions you might have.
In the past, asbestos was used in abundance: the fibers were mixed with cement, used in insulation and wiring, and even woven into fabric. Unfortunately, the inhalation of these fibers can cause serious illnesses, including malignant lung cancer, mesothelioma, and asbestosis. Despite its harmful effects on human health, asbestos is still not entirely banned; rather, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has placed limits on the amount and length of fibers that can be used. If you or a loved one has sustained improper asbestos exposure, our attorneys can help you receive the compensation you deserve from the parties who are responsible for endangering your health.

Every year more than 100 million pounds of pesticides are applied to lawns alone.
