Accomplished Attorneys in Toxic Exposure Cases
Coming into contact with asbestos, lead paint, or other harmful substances can result in chronic and sometimes terminal injuries and illnesses. Even worse, it can be difficult to determine that a toxic exposure made you sick. Though you may encounter one of these toxic environmental hazards at home, at your place of employment, or in a public place, your symptoms may not manifest until months or even years later.
Those resulting injuries or illnesses can prevent you from living the life you are used to. This leads to frustration, fear and uncertainty about the future. At times, it can feel as though you have more questions than answers. How will I pay my mounting medical bills? How will I support my family while I recover? What about my job? Do I need a lawyer to help me?

How Can Allen & Allen Help Me?
While toxic exposure is not uncommon, the ability and experience needed to build a solid case for the injured person is rare. Allen & Allen has a team of attorneys with extensive experience building successful claims for those injured by exposure to asbestos, lead, and other toxic substances.
Your attorney, combined with the assistance of experts including certified industrial hygienists, structural engineers, and medical professionals, can help to strengthen your case by conducting tests and gathering their results and other supporting data to establish the connection between your illness and its cause, determining proof of your exposure, and providing you with the guidance needed to avoid contributory negligence.
How Can I Help My Attorney?
First, remove yourself from the toxic environment as quickly as you can. Reducing your exposure to harmful substances is your top priority. Seek medical care immediately.
Then, contact a qualified professional to take samples of whatever is making you sick. Finding a qualified professional can be difficult, and having a knowledgeable attorney means finding the right professional.
Next, be sure to talk to your doctor about every abnormal physical and mental symptom you experience. The doctor’s records of these complaints are essential in documenting the progression of your illness.
Finally, in addition to your doctor’s records of treatment, record your own symptoms daily in an injury journal. This informal system of monitoring your health could help to determine any warning signs of more severe illness or injury that may otherwise go unnoticed.
While there’s seldom a fast resolution in matters of toxic exposure, know that you can present a powerful case with the help of your team at Allen & Allen.
