What is toxic exposure?

When workers in Iowa like you are exposed to dangerous toxins, chemicals, or fumes, your health is on the line. At the Law Offices of Gallner & Pattermann, P.C., we provide you with important information regarding the types of illnesses that can come from exposure, and what to do if you've been exposed to these harmful substances.

First, toxic exposure occurs any time you come into contact with a harmful substance. Generally speaking, these toxins or chemicals will be airborne, making it difficult to detect or escape them. Exposure can result in acute problems such as asthma, dizziness, or nausea. Acute toxin exposure may need immediate medical attention, depending on what chemical or toxin you have inhaled. Brain damage, lung damage, and other issues may occur if left untreated or if not treated quickly enough.

It can also create problems over time. Long-term exposure to toxins can cause ailments like asthmatic bronchitis or pulmonary conditions. You may even risk developing cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), or other issues with the pulmonary system that could threaten your life or impact you for the rest of it.

Unfortunately, exposure to deadly substances can result in issues that might last quite a while, eating into your health, finances, and peace of mind. If you have suffered from an ailment due to toxins or other harmful substances at your place of work, you may want to give our web site a look. We provide resources for people in situations like yours, so they can get back on their feet after exposure incidents.
