Santa Ana Toxic Exposure Attorney
Helping Injured Parties get the Financial Support They Need
It is the role of supervisors and management to ensure that industrial solvents, chemical substances, and toxic formulas are handled, labeled, and stored carefully and to the acceptable government safety standards. When there is room allowed for carelessness, a worker could be exposed to the toxic substances and suffer serious injuries. If the employer or the employer’s insurer will not step in and provide workers’ compensation, the worker has the right to use a toxic exposure lawsuit to seek justice and fair treatment.
If you have been harmed or rendered ill due to toxic exposure while performing regular job duties or functions, demand workers’ compensation to help you while you recover. Ufkes & Bright can step in and provide legal representation if your case encounters resistance, or if you do not know where to begin.

Workplace Injuries Linked to Toxic Exposure
Frequent chemical exposure in the workplace, or significant exposure all at once, can wreak havoc on a person’s health. Immediate consequences may be noticeable but there can be lingering and subtle, yet just as devastating, consequences later on. In order to fully understand what happened to a worker exposed to unsafe chemical substances, medical testing may be extensive and expensive. Ideally, no treatment option will be overlooked and none of the costs will fall on the workers’ shoulders.
Touching or inhaling a toxic chemical can cause:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Severe burns or flesh destruction
- Different forms of cancer
- Occupational illness (mesothelioma caused by asbestos)
- Sterility or birth disorders
Proving Liability in Light of Precautions
Many employers that require workers to use hazardous chemicals as part of their job falsely claim that taking necessary precautions remove any liability from them and their company. Even if an employer provides safety equipment, keeps an up-to-date Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) binder, and presents warning signs in key areas, they could still be liable for any resulting accidents and injuries. This is due to the fact that negligence is often not a factor in workers’ compensation claims. In order to be eligible for workers’ comp benefits, the worker only has to prove that their toxic exposure injury was caused while they were at work or completing a function or task directly related to their occupation.
