At Klein DeNatale Goldner, we fight on behalf of clients who have suffered injuries from toxic exposure related to truck accidents. Commercial trucks are often used to transport hazardous materials (HAZMAT), and an accident could result in severe injuries and even death.
If you or a loved one has been injured by toxic exposure, our Bakersfield truck accident attorneys can investigate the crash and help you pursue justice. Our firm has successfully recovered millions of dollars on behalf of our clients for 70 years in practice.
What Is Toxic Exposure After a Truck Accident?
Toxic exposure refers to any contact a victim has with hazardous substances.
- Powerful solvents
- Paints containing volatile organic compounds
- And harmful fumes
Trucking companies often transport these and other harmful substances along roads and highways. Truck drivers must undergo extensive training before carrying HAZMAT.
What Injuries Can Be Caused by Toxic Exposure?
Victims of toxic exposure may suffer:
- Blindness or eye damage
- Organ damage
- Burns or scars
- Lung damage or respiratory disorders
- Brain damage
Truck crashes involving toxic substances may also be fatal. It is important to conduct an immediate and thorough investigation to gather evidence. This may include witness statements, police reports, trucking company records, and medical records.
Who Can Be Held Accountable?
Our firm can use this evidence to support your right to compensation in court against the truck driver, truck manufacturer, cargo loader, or the truck maintenance company.
