Experienced Health Complications After Being Exposed to Cadmium? Your Legal Rights
Cadmium is a solid metal that is typically used in factories and other industrial settings. This is a well-known toxic chemical that must be handled with absolute care, as it has effects on the body and brain as a whole, some of which may be permanent. Cadmium has been shown to persist in soil, food, water and even cigarette smoke. Individuals that work in areas that smelt cadmium ore are more likely to be affected by this carcinogenic metal, and those that are exposed to cadmium for an extended amount of time may be at risk of death and other severe health issues. Therefore, the government worker safety agency OSHA has worked hard over the years crafting regulations in order to prevent cadmium exposure in all its forms. If you’re a worker that was exposed to cadmium, leading to chronic respiratory illness, kidney disease and cancer, you may be entitled to substantial financial compensation, and we’re here to help.

Cadmium is a natural compound that is mined deep in the earth. It is resistant to corrosion, making it ideal for the production of products such as batteries, pigments as well as metal coating. Cadmium is typically found bound to other compounds such as chlorides, sulfides, sulfates and oxides. Individuals that work in welding, battery manufacturing, paint manufacturing, gas meter repair, cadmium soap manufacturing, electroplating, auto body repair and ship repair industries are more likely to be affected by cadmium exposure.
