Pesticide Injury Lawyers
Found in the air we breathe and in foods, water, soil and even breast milk, pesticides are continually used in a number of environments. This includes homes, schools, buildings, roads and farming and agricultural fields. For those committed to protecting the ecosystem, not to mention human health activists, the impact of pesticides is horrifying, leading to a growing number of toxic tort claims.
To better understand, toxic tort claims involve serious personal injuries resulting from exposure to toxic substances, including pesticides. Individuals may be exposed to pesticides on the job, through household cleaners or disinfectants, industrial cleaners, cosmetics, contaminated foods, water and bug repellants. In turn, humans “absorb” pesticides through ingestion, inhalation and dermal exposure.
While harmful effects of pesticides may appear immediately in some cases, others may surface years down the road. Even so, legal liability in regard to pesticide injuries is based on negligence, establishing that the manufacturer or defendant, for instance, failed in their duty to provide reasonable care towards the injured person. Without question, these product liability cases are difficult. Yet, the pesticide injury attorneys at Wern Lawyers can help.

Pesticide Poisoning And Exposure Injuries
When it comes to pesticides, many are unnerved at all of the unknowns concerning these substances, including the wide range of illnesses and related conditions. For instance, early signs of pesticide poisoning may closely mirror that of heat exhaustion, asthma or even food poisoning. Symptoms may be mild such as a headache, weakness, dizziness, perspiration, nausea, diarrhea, flushed or yellow skin and rapid pulse. Yet, sudden and dramatic symptoms may involve fever, vomiting, uncontrollable muscle twitches, convulsions and unconsciousness.
Given the many types or “families” of pesticides, some are passed through the body, while others remain. They can produce damage to internal organs including the kidneys, lungs, liver and the abdominal region. Fat and muscle tissues may also be affected, resulting in poor coordination and trouble walking, talking or swallowing.
To say that pesticide poisoning and exposure has a significant impact on one’s life is an understatement. This is why the pesticide injury attorneys at Wern Lawyers want to make things right in your case. We realize that no amount of compensation can reverse or undo the damage caused to you. Yet, we are equipped to hold those accountable if you or a loved one has suffered a pesticide related injury due to another’s negligence.
