It may not be common knowledge, but maritime workers are exposed to toxic chemicals that can cause cancer or even death over time. This is something that people have assumed for a long time happens only to individuals in certain industries such as builders or those working in factories. Maritime chemical exposure is particularly dangerous on account of the fact that it can be insidious or go on undetected, and workers may not be able to escape the toxic fumes, compounds or gases due to being stationed offshore for long periods of time. Certain compounds such as benzene and asbestos are particularly dangerous on account of their ability to cause aggressive cancers which may be resistant to treatment such as leukemias and other blood cancer. If you work in the maritime industry and suspect that your cancer or health complication is due to long-term exposure to toxic chemicals, you may be able to recover compensation by way of filing a maritime toxic chemical exposure lawsuit, and we’re here to help with that.
