With many industrial sites, plants and refineries in Lake Charles, and in the surrounding areas, the improper release of toxic chemicals into the environment and the area, whether airborne or through water discharge, has taken place too often. Unfortunately, sometimes workers and other people are exposed during these releases, and they suffer serious, life-threatening illnesses as a result. This can cause the acute aggravation of an illness that an innocent person may already have, such as asthma, or emphysema, or may cause other serious illnesses or diseases.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with an illness or disease you suspect was caused by exposure to a hazardous chemical, mineral, or any other toxic substance, contact our Lake Charles toxic tort attorneys at Vamvoras Schwartzberg & Antoon, LLC as soon as possible. Some examples of toxins that have resulted in toxic tort cases include ethylene dichloride, benzene, vinyl chloride, asbestos, silica, lead, mold and pesticides.
