Louisiana Toxic Chemical Attorneys
Louisiana workers are sometimes at risk of contracting diseases resulting from exposure to toxic chemicals such as benzene in an occupational setting. Job types such as pipe fitters, painters, gasoline distribution workers and refinery workers are all at risk of coming into contact with such chemicals. Exposure to benzene has been linked directly to leukemia, a potentially fatal cancer of the blood and bone marrow.
Given the serious health effects of toxic chemicals, finding a Louisiana attorney who understands the symptoms and effects of benzene exposure is critical. At Landry & Swarr we believe that our experience with other occupational exposure diseases such as asbestos and mesothelioma gives us unique capabilities in dealing with benzene cases.
Because benzene is easily absorbed into the body it is the responsibility of employers to ensure the safety of their employees by taking measures to minimize exposure. The government has set strict exposure requirements and the courts deem failure to comply with such measures as negligence.
Our Louisiana benzene attorneys can help provide victims and their family’s compensation for pain, suffering and medical expenses incurred as a result of exposure to toxic chemicals.
