About Poisoning in San Diego
Any toxic substance that is absorbed through the skin or ingested can have an adverse effect on a body and cause poisoning. Thousands of poisoning accidents happen each day and some of them are severe enough to cause permanent debilitating injuries. A poisoning accident may require prolonged hospitalization and long-term medical treatment and therapy. Most people suffer poisioning injuries from exposure or ingestion of toxic substances such as lead, gases, pesticides, or radiation.
The majority of poisonings occur to children who handle or chew on unsafe toys containing a toxic material such as lead. A child may open a kitchen cabinet, find a liquid substance and drink it not knowing that it was a cleaning fluid. A container with a toxic substance may not have adequate labeling to warn consumers of a potential poisoning. If you or a loved one has suffered injuries from poisoning, immediately contact a San Diego personal injury lawyer for legal advice regarding your legal rights to compensation for your poisoning injuries. Our lawyers at the Pacific Attorney Group aggressively and successfully represent hundreds of clients made ill from poisioning.
Symptoms of Poisoning
A toxic substance ingested into the body or absorbed into the skin can cause serious injuries. Some examples of poisoning symptoms may include seizures, shock, pain, nervous system disorder, heart beat irregularity, liver or other internal organ damage, lung damage, unconsciousness or death.
A poisoning accident caused by another's negligence may be grounds for a lawsuit against the responsible individual for monetary compensation and punitive damages. A wrongful death lawsuit may be the correct legal action to take upon a poisioning death. Monetary compensation may include damages in the form of loss of wages and medical costs. Punitive damages normally cover pain and suffering. It is best to seek legal advice from an attorney before settling an insurance claim. If you settle, you may forefit your right to sue for damages over and above the insurance settlement offer amount.
