Florida Personal injury Law
Florida Personal injury Law can range from many different issues, including negligence, automobile accidents, slip and fall incidents, and even toxic torts. Before diving into examples of common toxic tort cases that may result in compensation, we first need to evaluate what a toxic tort even is and how it plays into Florida Personal injury Law.
A toxic tort is considered a specific type of personal injury lawsuit where the plaintiff claims they were exposed to a dangerous chemical or substance that resulted in a disease or injury. This may not sound like a common occurrence, but if it ever were to happen to you, you would want to know you had the right to fight for some form of reparation. The most common chemical involved in a case of toxic tort is nerve agents, mercury, asbestos, silica, manganese, dioxins, beryllium, and benzene among others. Exposure to some of these harmful chemicals can result in several diseases including, but not limited to, Aplastic anemia, Silicosis, Sarcoidosis, Asbestosis, Pneumonoconiosis, Hodgkin’s disease, Leukemia, Lymphoma, and more.
While exposure to these harmful chemicals can come from occupational exposure, especially if your job involves handling these harmful substances, exposure can also occur due to defected or contaminated pharmaceuticals and medications. There is also a risk in your very own home, if there is mold contamination or if something was treated with formaldehyde, pesticides, or lead paint.
Pesticide exposure specifically is quite common because they’re used inside and outside homes, offices, and even schools. In fact, millions of pounds of pesticides are applied to lawns alone every year. No matter the use, all pesticide products contain a large number of ingredients that are harmful to a person. At the very least, they can cause eye and skin irritation, but at their worst, they can even cause nervous, hormonal, and immune system damage as well as cancer. If you or a loved one ever experience symptoms and suspect it may due to pesticide exposure, it’s crucial to have someone take measurements promptly in order to preserve evidence. This, in combination with thorough evaluations of your injuries, is crucial for this case.
