Savannah Firm Advises Employees Harmed by Toxic Substances
Southern Georgia lawyer seeks compensation for work-related conditions
Winning a claim involving exposure to toxic substances in the workplace is a challenge. Even in cases of severe illnesses and injuries, employers often put up a strong defense. In these matters, a litigator with significant experience can give you the insight and advocacy you need to secure a fair result. Anderson Law Firm in Savannah has a long history of obtaining substantial recoveries for workers who’ve suffered injuries and illnesses while on the job. Having practiced in this field for 35 years, Attorney N. Calhoun “Andy” Anderson, Jr. understands how to prove a connection between hazardous materials in the workplace and the medical conditions that cause severe damage to victims and their families.
Steadfast attorney litigates hazardous material cases
To help clients stricken with illnesses triggered by exposure to harmful substances, whether by inhalation, ingestion or direct skin contact, our firm gathers the scientific and expert evidence needed to bolster their claims. We handle cases involving various conditions proven to have resulted from workplace exposure, such as:
- Cancer — Numerous industries use chemicals with carcinogenic effects as part of their daily operations. Even agricultural workers have suffered from Hodgkin’s lymphoma and Parkinson’s disease due to the use of pesticides. If you have been diagnosed with cancer and aren’t sure of the cause, our firm can help you determine if workplace exposure is a possible factor.
- Mesothelioma — We have detailed knowledge of mesothelioma and its connection to asbestos that was used heavily in construction, shipbuilding and other fields for decades.
- Asthma and lung disease — Occupational asthma accounts for approximately 15 percent of asthma cases in the United States. People who work in bakeries, hospitals, lumberyards and many other places risk experiencing asthma and other lung problems. When employers challenge whether a client’s medical condition is actually job-related, we have the ability to counter their defenses and pinpoint the true cause.
Defendant businesses and their lawyers and insurance companies might try to intimidate you into accepting an unjust settlement or giving up your claim entirely. We’ll provide comprehensive support during your difficult time and give you a clear idea of what your case might be worth. Mr. Anderson has an extensive background in cases arising from manufacturing plant injuries and other harm caused by dangerous substances, including:
- Reproductive system problems
- Brain damage
- Lung and organ damage
Litigation for medical harm caused by dangerous materials can be lengthy. You don’t have to worry about assembling the necessary resources for a long legal battle, because our firm does not collect payment from you until after you’ve received a financial recovery.
