Governed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) currently has nearly 600 individually listed toxic chemicals. Some of the most dangerous toxic substances are:
- Toxic Mold
- Carbon Monoxide
Toxic chemicals can be present in pharmacuticals, consumer products, the environment, the home, and the workplace. Symptoms of exposure to toxic chemicals often have a delayed onset, worsening the severity of the condition caused by the original toxin and increasing the time and money needed to maintain the exposure victim's quality of life. The Toxic Substances Control Act of 1976 (TSCA) regulates the use and disposal of toxic substances. Toxic chemical lawyers represent clients who have suffered personal injuries or property damage caused by encounters with toxic chemicals, as well as individuals who have been exposed to toxic pollutants. A toxic chemical attorney can work to ensure that the company responsible for a worker's or consumer's exposure to a toxic chemical is held liable for the resulting damages. If you have been exposed to a toxic chemical, don't wait to get professional legal assistance.
