Are you suffering a premises accident injury? Premises injury liability attorneys in Atlanta can go over your case to determine if you may be entitled to compensation. In some cases, hazardous waste or material exposure may be chronic, meaning you are exposed over a period of time. Injuries or illness caused by chronic exposure might take a long time to develop.
A single, or acute, exposure may be to blame for your injuries in some cases. In this case, symptoms may develop immediately or very soon after exposure.
What types of illnesses and injuries could develop from hazardous waste?
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) mentions several potential injuries or illnesses associated with hazardous waste exposure. Some of the possible injuries or illnesses include:
- liver failure;
- growth/developmental issues;
- burns; and
- lung damage.
Keep in mind, of course, that this is not a complete list. If you suspect that your injury can be attributed to hazardous waste exposure, tell your doctor and see a premises injury liability attorney in Atlanta to go over your case.
The prognosis of a property accident injury involving hazardous waste will depend on several factors. The amount of the hazardous substance to which the individual was exposed; how it was disposed of or used; and the frequency and duration of the exposure can make a difference.
Proving premises liability in a case like this can be challenging. Your attorney can thoroughly investigate who may have been at fault and what types of evidence may demonstrate liability.
