Oklahoma Toxic Substance Exposure Lawyers
Construction work is notorious for the toll that it can take on a worker’s body. Workplace accidents are somewhat commonplace and may result in serious injuries despite thorough training and a worksite adherence to best practices. But the threat to construction worker safety is not limited to the more arduous and physically stressful job responsibilities. During the building process, there are often numerous materials and chemicals that must be used which are inherently toxic. When stored and handled properly, a construction company employee might be able to work in the vicinity of these substances without incurring any adverse health effects, but any mistakes or negligence could prove disastrous.
If you have experienced ill health effects attributable to work-related exposure to a toxic substance, you may be eligible to receive compensation. These funds can help ensure that you have access to the medical care that you need and that your family receives financial assistance throughout the period when you are unable to work.
