as a result of negligent industry practices, including inadequate protective
equipment and unprompted warnings.

from an experienced attorney. Since 1998, the
Law Offices of Ruben Ortiz has an exceptional track record of success by protecting the rights of

Types of Chemical Exposure
Chemical exposure is one of the most typical causes of workplace injuries.
Whether they know it or not, the majority of employees are constantly
exposed to chemicals, especially those who work in oil refineries, industrial
plants, chemical labs, gasoline companies and pesticide manufacturers.
The most common types of chemicals in the workplace include:
- Hydrogen sulfide
Exposure to these chemicals result in cancer, lymphoma, leukemia, respiratory
failure, emphysema, or death. Even continuous exposure to bacteria, exhaust
fumes, gasoline, and petroleum products can lead to severe illnesses.
Some businesses negligently and carelessly dispose dangerous toxic chemicals
into the environment which may contaminate the water we drink or support
wildlife and contaminate the soil which may render useless for farming
and decrease the value of property. The responsibility for handling environmental
exposure falls into the hands of the local, regional, and state governments.
Certain cleaning products and pesticides used at home are poisonous. Manufacturers
may fail to properly package or label these products, making them accountable
for any harm done to a user.
