Southwest Louisiana Refinery Leaks & Chemical Exposure

A toxic tort occurs when a negligent party or corporation intentionally or negligently causes an individual to be exposed to dangerous toxins, such as chemicals, asbestos, oil or mold. These cases can involve chemical exposure, inhalation exposure and environmental law claims.

If you work in or live near a petrochemical plant, refinery, oil fields or other industrial plants it is possible to be exposed to dangerous chemicals and suffer health problems as a result.

Symptoms of Chemical and Dangerous Toxin Exposure
