Toxic Substances & Exposures
Individuals and businesses who handle chemicals improperly or expose their employees to toxic substances need to be held accountable for their actions. If you are suffering as a result of toxic exposure, we can help.
At the Law Office of Jeffrey G. Hester, we represent people who have been harmed because of toxic exposure and environmental pollution. Although these cases can be extremely complex, our focus is simple—we will put together a team of renowned scientific experts and together use all our legal skills, experience, and resources in an attempt to obtain not only monetary compensation for our clients but justice as well.
Our Birmingham industrial injury attorney is taking a wide variety of toxic chemical exposure cases, including claims involving:
- Toxic pharmaceuticals
- Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB)
- Benzene exposure
- Gas and oil spills
- Contaminated water supplies
- Lead paint poisoning
- Asbestos exposure and Mesothelioma
- Silica exposure
- Mercury and heavy metals
Part of the responsibility of being a business owner is having the duty to properly use and dispose of chemicals. When negligence results in toxic exposure and environmental pollution, people need to be held accountable.
Falls from Heights
When a construction worker or other type of worker is on an elevated surface, such as scaffolding or a building that is under construction, the potential for injuries always exists. Though Alabama has specific laws in place that govern safety measures for workers on construction sites and those who work on elevated surfaces, falls from heights can still occur. These types of accidents can cause serious, lasting injuries and leave the worker unable to return to his or her job.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a fall, please give us a call. We would love to help you evaluate your potential case and if warranted, pursue compensation for the injuries you or your loved one has suffered. We investigate and examine all aspects of your case, including the worksite itself, the safety measures that were in place, the condition of the ladder or scaffolding, and other factors.
Our firm would love to help you in handling all types of construction and worksite fall accidents, such as:
- Ladder falls
- Scaffolding collapses
- Hoist accidents
- Window washer accidents
- Cherry picker accidents
- Crane accidents
- Safety equipment failure
If you suffered serious injuries, such as head injuries, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, or other injuries in the fall, your employer or another party may be held responsible.
In addition to handling cases involving workers who fell from heights or were injured in an equipment collapse, our Birmingham personal injury attorney also represents those workers who have been injured by falling objects. Though hard hats and other safety equipment may be required to protect workers and secure objects, a worker may still become injured and file a claim for damages.
