Chemical Exposure Lawyers
If you have been exposed to workplace substances you believe resulted in allergies, difficulty breathing, or other symptoms, please contact us to discuss these issues as soon as possible. Please know that workers' compensation insurance companies frequently deny the claims of workers who suffer injuries following a workplace exposure.
They often justify their actions by claiming that your co-workers who were exposed were not adversely affected. However, you may be susceptible to workplace exposures while others are not.
If you are exposed to even common household chemicals while at work and you require medical treatment or must be removed from certain workplace environments, you may be entitled to compensation.
The attorneys at Wertz & Dake would be happy to speak with you regarding your workplace exposure and discuss whether you are entitled to compensation under Iowa law.
