Occupational Exposure in New Jersey
Exposed to a Dangerous Substance at Work?
Due to the scope of their employment, individuals may come into contact with chemicals that may cause cancer or other forms of toxicity. However, should this occur, it is required that the individual is first given clear, reasonable warning about the dangers of the exposure. If the individual does not receive that warning, they may have grounds to pursue a product liability claim for the failure to warn regarding the potential hazards.
Similarly, workers may be asked to work with toxic chemicals when there is a safe alternative available to them or they may be not supplied with the necessary protective equipment. In these cases, our New Jersey product liability attorneys can help.
Occupational Exposure to Tuberculosis
In the end of the 20th century, the United States saw a marked increase of tuberculosis (TB)—a disease that was once one of the leading causes of death. Although there has been a decline in case rates since 1993, New Jersey continues to have a large proportion of individuals who are at risk for exposure. In an effort to prevent further TB cases, several prevention methods have been enforced in the following workplaces:
- Health care facilities
- Correctional facilities
- Long-term care facilities for the elderly
- Drug-treatment facilities
- Homeless shelters
