Chemical & Hazardous Substance Exposure

The heart of the Kanawha River Valley, also known as Chemical Valley, Charleston, where our law offices are located, is no stranger to chemical spills and accidents involving hazardous substances. The Elk River spill of 2014 attracted attention from the mass media; however, many other chemical-related incidents have harmed people in Chemical Valley for years.

Besides getting prompt medical treatment after a chemical exposure injury, your best defense is to consult with an experienced plaintiffs' attorney. Johnstone & Gabhart, LLP, in Charleston, is committed to advocating for people injured in explosions and chemical exposure accidents in Chemical Valley and elsewhere. If you have suffered an injury caused by exposure to risky chemicals, our law firm is a valuable resource. Our lawyers will evaluate your case at no charge. If we represent you, we will undertake a thorough investigation to determine who was negligent and who is responsible to compensate you for:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wage replacement
  • Therapy and rehabilitation
  • Pain and suffering

Chemical Valley is home to DuPont and many other companies that manufacture and deal with hazardous substances. Safety regulations should — and often do — protect workers and other inhabitants of the area from the dangers of chemical exposure. However, accidents such as explosions and chemical leaks do happen, sometimes resulting in painful, long-lasting injuries, including:

  • Chemical burns
  • Respiratory ailments
  • Skin rashes
  • Debilitating injuries to eyes, ears or mouth
  • Disfigurement
  • Fatal injuries

Your chemical burns (or injuries to your loved one) may have occurred as a work-related injury — or you may have been injured as a consumer of a defective product. Whatever the circumstances, Johnstone & Gabhart, LLP, is here to help. Our toxic tort lawyers have a track record of successful claims and lawsuits on behalf of those injured by chemical-related accidents and other types of personal injuries.
