North Carolina Exposure to Dangerous Substance Lawyers
Dedicated Advocacy for Victims of Toxic Exposure & Their Loved Ones
No one should be unknowingly exposed to harmful, dangerous, or toxic substances in the workplace, while shopping, in their home, or simply while living their life. Unfortunately, toxic exposure is relatively common and, in many cases, people do not even realize they have been exposed until much later when they begin experiencing symptoms. How does this happen? Often, product manufacturers and distributors fail to warn consumers of the potential risks of their products. Perhaps the most infamous of these cases is the asbestos industry’s failure to warn the public of the risks associated with asbestos exposure for decades, leading to countless cases of illness, disease, and death.
If you or someone you love was the victim of toxic exposure, whether in the workplace or anywhere else, Lanier Law Group can help. Our North Carolina exposure to dangerous substance attorneys are well-versed in these complex cases. We can help you navigate the legal process and fight for the maximum compensation you are owed.
Common Toxic Exposure Cases
Dangerous substances can lurk everywhere—from pesticides used to treat the food we consume to materials used in the construction of homes and businesses.
Some of the most commonly seen toxic exposure cases involve:
- Lead poisoning
- Asbestos exposure/mesothelioma
- Water, soil, or air contamination
- Dangerous prescription drugs
- Defective drywall
- Unsafe building materials
- Carbon monoxide poisoning
This list is not exhaustive. If you or your loved one suffered injuries, illness, or harm after being exposed to any type of dangerous substance, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your damages. Our team can help you fight for the justice and recovery you deserve.
Who Is Liable?
Product manufacturers have a responsibility to warn the public of potential toxic exposure risks associated with their products so that consumers can make educated choices about which products they do and do not use. Additionally, landlords and building managers are often required by law to warn tenants and visitors of dangerous substances on or near the property that visitors may be exposed to. Doctors and pharmacists should warn patients of potential side effects of pharmaceutical drugs and devices, too.
Unfortunately, this does not always happen. When these and other parties are negligent or wrongfully fail to warn the public of toxic exposure risks, they can—and should—be held accountable.
