Exposure to Toxic Substances
South Carolina Toxic Tort Attorneys
A toxic tort involves the exposure of individuals, often in large numbers, to harmful chemical or biological substances.
When this exposure results in serious injuries or health problems and you can show that those problems were caused by the negligence or carelessness of others, the law says that those who are injured or suffered the loss of a loved one due to wrongful death are entitled to compensation.

Toxic Substances, Industrial Workers, and Children
Exposure to toxic substances is particularly harmful for industrial workers who may have been exposed to high levels of toxins over a long period of time. Exposure to toxic substances is also particularly harmful to children because they are generally more sensitive to toxic agents and have a greater likelihood of exposure as a result of play habits and behavior patterns.
Past studies by government agencies in the United States have demonstrated that excess exposure to metals, lead, and arsenic can be harmful. In particular, children born to mothers exposed to solvent-contaminated drinking water face an elevated risk of reproductive problems.
If You Have Been or Are Being Exposed to Toxic Substances
The first step that you should take if you suspect that you or your child has been exposed to toxic substances is to contact a doctor immediately. After getting appropriate medical care, consult with an attorney who has handled toxic tort claims before or seek to obtain additional information by contacting the Department of Public Health in your state or county.
