Lafayette Dangerous Chemical Burn Lawyers
Exposure to Toxic Substances and Environmental Hazards
Chemicals can cause serious burns as well as other devastating health problems, yet big corporations often fail to take basic safety precautions when making, using or transporting toxic chemicals.
The Joseph Joy & Associates law firm in Lafayette, Louisiana, has extensive experience representing people who have been injured by exposure to toxic substances and other environmental hazards, including groundwater contamination.
At a school in Florida, workers sprayed the roof with a chemical-foam sealant containing Isocyanate, a dangerous chemical. Children at the school came in contact with the sealant. Attorney Joseph “Buzzy” Joy filed suit on behalf of the 36 victims, most of who have suffered and continue to suffer various health problems and psychological problems (see list below). All of these cases settled.
