Identifying Injuries from Chemical Spills
Without an explosion and notification of the event, many victims of chemical spills sometimes assume that they are just under the weather. They initially suffer flu-like symptoms. Their doctors subsequently diagnose them with the flu and send them home. However, something far more serious could be going on. Something that requires medical attention and legal action.
At Herrman & Herrman, P.L.L.C., we take fast action in investigating a chemical spill injury claim. We conduct an investigation by teaming with an expert to identify a plume pattern and the prevailing wind direction at the time of the spill. Weather conditions are often a major factor. The responsible company may have waited for the fog to set in, so emissions from smokestacks would be hidden. While you and your neighbors slept, a company’s negligence was injuring you.
Many of our clients come to us with internal burns to their lungs or the mucous lining of their nose, throat, and eyes. Some lack insurance and doctors deny them treatment for fear of not being paid. Our job is to allay those fears and serve a chemical spill victim through representation and facilitating needed medical treatment.
