Chemical Exposure Lawyer in Kansas City

Exposed to Hazardous Chemicals? File for Workers' Comp

Jobs that involve the handling, production, or use of hazardous chemicals require strict safety precautions and procedures. Employers must comply with standards set by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) or else face penalties. Have you been injured due to chemical exposure that resulted from a negligent worker or employer? Height Stang, LLC can help.

Chemical Burns, Chemical Spills & Inhalation of Toxic Fumes

Exposure to hazardous chemicals can cause a number of work-related injuries. Burn injuries and eye injuries can occur due to chemical spills and splashes, or when chemicals evaporate into the air. Chemical inhalation can cause serious mouth, lung, and respiratory problems. Many chemical injuries are lasting and can even cause long-term or permanent disability. You deserve compensation for any of these cases as long as your injuries occurred on the job and you were not responsible for your accident.

Types of chemicals that commonly cause work-related injuries include:

  • Ammonia
  • Sulfuric acid
  • Muriatic acid
  • Hydrochloric acid
  • Nitric acid
  • Phosphoric acid
  • Sodium hydroxide and potassium hydroxide
  • Sodium and calcium hypochlorite

These are only some of many chemicals that can result in serious injury. Let our firm provide the legal counsel and representation that you need to fight for the compensation that you deserve.
