St. Louis chemical exposure incidents can occur in the workplace, at home, or in the community. You don’t even have to work for a factory or a laboratory to be exposed to dangerous chemicals. Instead, toxic exposure can occur in our everyday lives. But, what is scarier than knowing you could be exposed to hazardous chemicals in any circumstance? Most people don’t even know they have been exposed until months later, or, those exposed attribute their symptoms and illnesses to other causes.
At TorHoerman Law, our team of St. Louis injury lawyers is determined to help those wronged by others. If you have been injured due to chemical exposure, our firm will help guide you through the steps of a St. Louis chemical exposure claim.
We work on a contingency principle which means we do not get paid unless we win. There are no upfront costs associated with our firm.
An important thing to remember is that there is often a time limit for when a lawsuit can be filed. In Missouri, that time limit is typically two years from the date of the incident, referred to as the statute of limitations. However, in terms of chemical exposure, there is a small exception. If you only recently discovered the consequences and had not known you were exposed to a chemical at all, the statute of limitations actually applies to the date of discovery of your symptoms. This is especially important for instances of chemical exposure that happened many years ago, but until recently, no one had known.
Although we are a law firm, we always, always recommend you hire a lawyer to represent you. The legal industry can be confusing, especially when speaking of toxic tort lawsuits which can be notoriously difficult to prove. Not only that but if you were injured while at work, worker’s compensation often complicates the process even further. It is in your best interest to hire a lawyer to represent you throughout the course of the lawsuit.
