"Your injuries are not your fault. We can help you bring a claim against your employer and responsible third parties." - Cormany Law PLLC

Experience Handling Injuries Within Various Industries

Chemical exposure injuries can be obtained in almost any industry, including construction, manufacturing and coal mining. Exposure to harmful chemicals can make you seriously ill - it can also kill you. Our law firm has handled cases where railroad workers treating rail ties were exposed to hazardous chemicals. We also understand how arsenic, coal tar and pesticides are sprayed on most wood products to provide long-term weather protection, while coal miners and other workers can suffer black lung and other exposure illnesses.

At Cormany Law PLLC, our legal team has experience identifying health hazards associated with chemical exposure injuries. We are well-versed with The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) recommendations for chemical standards.

Our goal is to pinpoint the direct cause of your chemical exposure. We review every step of the manufacturing process, including:

  • Proper training to avoid exposure
  • Defective equipment
  • Ineffective or lacking personal protective equipment
