When you are exposed to toxic chemicals, it is imperative that you get immediate medical attention. You also need to take certain steps to decontaminate yourself and to avoid spreading the chemical exposure. Five important steps you need to take after exposure to toxic chemicals include:
- Call 911.
- Isolate yourself (or whoever is affected by the chemical exposure) to an “isolation room.”
- Close the doors and/or windows to the affected area to avoid the spread of the chemical exposure.
- Alert people to evacuate the affected area until the area is deemed safe by the experts.
- Wash or flush the affected area thoroughly with water until medical help arrives.
Once you have received the necessary medical treatments for your chemical exposure, you should consult an experienced chemical exposure attorney to protect your legal rights. You may be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses, loss of wages, and pain and suffering. The right attorney will expertly handle your case and secure the maximum monetary compensation that you deserve.
Some common types of toxic chemicals include:
- Cleaning products used in most households
