Chemical Spills at Businesses

Businesses that work with chemicals have a responsibility to handle everything safely to avoid any harm to employees and to the nearby community. When businesses are negligent and mishandle chemicals, chemical spills can occur. Depending on the type of chemical that is spilled, employees and community members could suffer some of the following:

  • Respiratory issues
  • Irritation to the eyes
  • Chemical burns
  • Skin irritation

Although chemical spills are more likely to affect only those in the immediate area, chemical spills can also affect others nearby. In some cases, the chemical spills can impact the community. These spills can cause foul odors and, based on the type of substance, can be associated with many different symptoms.

Can I File a Lawsuit for Injuries Caused by a Chemical Spill?

Yes, you could have the right to file a lawsuit for any harm resulting from a chemical spill. This is based on the duty of care owed by the negligent entity. In general, the entity (the business) owes a duty of care to their employees and to the community. If the recklessness or negligence of the business leads to a chemical spill that harms employees or community members, the business could be liable and could be sued.

For more information about the right to file a lawsuit for harm resulting from a chemical spill, please do not hesitate to reach out to our legal team as soon as possible. Our lawyers here at the Downtown L.A. Law Group are ready to evaluate your current situation and help you file your claim.

Am I Eligible to Receive Compensation?

Based on the details surrounding your claim, you could be eligible to recover compensation. Although every claim is different, you could be entitled to receive compensation for some of the following:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Property damage
  • Funeral and burial costs
  • Loss of consortium
  • Punitive damages
  • Legal fees

How much compensation can I get? The value of your claim will be based on the specific case details, such as the type of injuries that occurred, the severity of the injuries, the permanency of your injuries, the mental/emotional distress resulting from the injuries, and more. In general, these cases can be worth up to $500,000, although some cases can be worth more.

How Long Do I Have to Sue?

All claims are subject to a statue of limitations which determines the deadline that applies to claims. In California, personal injury claims and wrongful death claims, alike, are subject to a two-year statute of limitations. This means that claimants only have two years to file. Based on the details surrounding the claim, certain exceptions could apply which could pause the statute of limitations. If you find yourself unsure of the total length of time that you have to sue, do not hesitate to contact us as soon as possible. Our experts are ready to file your claim on time.
