If you have suffered health issues following exposure to hazardous or toxic materials, call The Law Office of Richard M. Kenny in Manhattan at (212) 421-0300. You may be entitled to compensation for past and future medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other damages.
Did Your Employer Expose You to Toxic Substances?
Construction site managers are responsible for providing a safe working environment. Unfortunately, many employers are more concerned about getting the job done than in protecting the health of their workers. The following are examples of employer negligence:
- Failing to warn you of hazardous materials at the site
- Failing to provide you with proper breathing masks
- Failing to provide you with hazmat protective clothing
Others who may be responsible for your losses may include:
- The manufacturer of the hazardous material, if it was unreasonably dangerous or contained inadequate warnings
- The property owner, if he or she failed to warn you about known hazards on the site
Attorney Richard M. Kenny and our legal team will conduct a full investigation to learn how you were exposed to toxic materials and who is responsible for the damage to your health. Then we will seek the maximum compensation from all liable parties. Our law firm has recovered more than $100 million in damages for our clients.
