It’s Life and Death
Chemical poisoning is not like other work injuries. This goes beyond breaking a bone. In many cases, poisoning leads to serious issues, such as cancer, neurological damage, and lung issues. These problems can have lifelong effects that aren’t just hard on the victim, but on the family, as well. While money can’t make the problems go away, it can take care of the long-term needs and soften the blow that the patient and the family have to deal with.
If your employer doesn’t adhere to safety standards on the job site, it is up to you to fight back. Failing to do so will put additional employees at risk, as well. Don’t let your employer get away with it. These guidelines were put in place for a reason, and your employer needs to be held accountable. Contact Lytal, Reiter, Smith, Ivey & Fronrath, and we can go over your options with you.
