With many industrial sites, plants and refineries in Lake Charles and in the surrounding area, the improper release of toxic chemicals into the environment, whether airborne or through water discharge, has taken place too often from industrial accidents. Unfortunately, sometimes workers and other people are exposed during these releases and suffer serious, life-threatening illnesses. As a result, the exposure can cause the acute aggravation of an illness that an innocent person may already have, such as asthma, or emphysema, or may cause other serious illnesses or diseases.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with an illness or disease you suspect was caused by exposure to a hazardous chemical, mineral or any other toxic substance, contact our Lake Charles toxic tort attorneys at Vamvoras Antoon Attorneys at Law as soon as possible. Exposure to toxic chemicals may be accidental, but often is due to negligent industry practices. Examples of toxins that have resulted in toxic tort cases include ethylene dichloride, benzene, vinyl chloride, asbestos, silica, lead, mold and pesticides. Our attorneys will provide experienced representation to help you get the compensation you deserve including lost wages, medical expenses, and pain and suffering.
